The masks tend the cause clearcoat and paint damage over time since sand gets between the mask and hood acts as sandpaper when the wind is hitting it.
If you really wanted a mask you could get the 3M clearbra film and then put the mask over that. More expensive though.I was leaning towards the second one, but after MFury's advice about dirt and grit getting in there maybe I'll just leave it plain. The deflector is made of plastic and I've seen them on other cars cracked and broken. Pros and cons with everything I guess. I'm like a kid with a new toy though, I want to get all the add ons I can
I don't know... by the looks of your picture it didn't deflect that other car very well. I think you needed more power to the forward deflector...I've had a defector on every vehicle I've owned and the one that didn't had the mask and was also the only car I ever had with stone chips in the windshield and awful paint under it.
Deflector all the way. they look sharp!
However mine was smashed in a head on collision but will be all fixed and new soon. New deflector and all.
