Default Bra/nose cover for NISMO model?

So my factory order is being delivered sometime this week. The dealership called me yesterday and told me that they don't think the black leather nosemask I ordered will fit the NISMO model due to the chin spoiler which I confirmed with a company that specializes in nissan accessories.

Anyone recommend a nose cover I can use without shelling out a ton of money for clearbra?

Should also specify that I want it to not look like crap and that it should be form-fitting. Mostly I just want it for protection at high speeds/distance drives. I spent a small fortune getting my '09's nose sanded down/repainted due to road rash and it wasn't even a NISMO.

Just my own opinion here DM but the nose covers make most if not all cars front ugly and get to be an issue if you don't take them out once in a while to clean the dirt buildup.

I know it's not what you were asking but having clearbra done by the right person makes a great difference and does look as intrusive as a noser cover would.

I was figuring a black leather nose mask wouldn't look bad on the magnetic black paint.

Last I looked into clearbra coating it was somewhere in the neighborhood of $3k for front spoiler/front fenders if I remember right. That seems a bit excessive.

That's way too steep imo....My friend just had his E90 M3 wrapped full frontal...not the factory precut pieces either, full custom wrap that goes around the edges. That was $1500

Whole front bumper, headlight, full hood, front fenders, side mirrors...but material wasn't 3M, it was something else that's actually better (new material that wouldn't turn yellowish over time)

3k!?!? Ummm I was quoted $700 for the entire front bumper, part of the fenders, front part of the hood and the side mirrors.

I paid 2k for the front back, sides, mirrors but if you were to do just the front it would be around $600.

700 for front bumper, 1/3 hood, mirrors, 1/3 fenders, a pillers, 1/2 of roof, and rear fenders like the old porsches. The car bra has been described as "art" by people in the biz in terms of application and fit. 3m/venture shield.

Shop around.

Oh that's not so bad then. Definitely worth looking into before beach trips this summer.

Any chance you could find out what he used instead of 3M? Super-interested in something that will last 5-6 years without yellowing.

Your dealer is right; the bra that fits the standard 370 won't work on the NISMO unfortunately.

I haven't checked into it for a while but last time I check there simply wasn't a bra made for the NISMO which is a shame because that nose really does pick up nicks and scratches.

Bumpet bras are just plain tacky. Get it clear wrapped or just deal with tbe occasional nicks.

I paid $525 for the same set-up in Houston.
