In 1960, upholsterer Bill Colgan hand-made a revolutionary soft, front-end shield for protecting Porsche's new 356 while it whizzed around the test track. 45 years later, Colgan's Custom Original Car Bra is still made by hand, performing better than any other car bra on the market.
Colgan's UV-resistant 100% virgin vinyl-the heaviest in the industry-is even milled exclusively to company's highest standards. It resists fading in the sun, shrinkage in heat and stiffness in bitter cold. Plus, it's backed by a finish-pampering layer of thick flannel that's integrated into the vinyl to prevent separation. This cozy lining keeps your paint scratch-free while the flow-through screen across your grille still lets your engine breathe.
Hand-made to the specs of your vehicle from multiple pieces of vinyl, the Colgan Custom Original Car Bra delivers the best possible “memory" fit with no harmful flapping at any speed. The Colgan Custom Original Car Bra fits factory headlamps and won't keep you from opening and closing your hood.
Whether you want a little or a lot of front-end protection, there's an Original Car Bra for you. Trucks and SUVs get the full front-end bra with or without a T-style hood piece, or the T-style piece by itself. What's more, choose between a classic Black or ultra-modern Carbon Fiber finish.
When you want proven protection from the folks that started it all, the choice is Colgan. Plus, your Custom Original Car Bra comes backed by a 3-year warranty.

I love the look and feel of my new bra on my 2013 Mini Cooper S. In the hot Vegas air it was a breeze to install. My only complaint is that the 5 small tabs used to hold the hood cover portion are too short. They should be at least 2" long instead of 3/4" to keep the wind from working the tabs out. I threaded a long coat hanger through each tab and made hooks to connect to convenient holes in the hood and the problem is solved. It is very quiet and no flapping now, even at 80 mph.

I was really impressed how well it fits, and the quality of the bra. It fits real tight which it should, because if it "flapped" at high speeds it could damage the cars paint finish. Great quality and reasonable price. Good job!

Totally satisfied with product. Had a problem after installation though, couldn't get hood to release. Extra thickness of bra caused too tight of a fit between hood and chassis latch. Had to get wife to sit on front of hood before release would work. Eventually had to add spacer washers behind hood components to remove binding. Works great now.

We purchased a bra for our 2013 Cadillac SRX as we plan on pulling the SRX behind our motor home. We recently complete our first long road trip and used the bra extensively to shield the front of the SUV from road rash, rocks, dust and insects. The bra was easy to install, and the directions were easy to understand. The bra performed very will, however upon arriving home after 5 days of driving in all sorts of weather we found small rocks and grit under the bra and paint scars on the hood.

My husband and father kept telling me that I shouldn't put a bra on my car. They both talked about how cheap they all look and my dad kept telling me horror stories of how they will scratch your car up. I decided I would give it a shot. The bra seems to be of a really good quality. It was easy to get on and I've had people ask me where I got it because they like the look. My dad and my husband were both surprised and my dad is going to get one for his corvette.

I recently purchased a new 2014 Ford Edge and had 700 miles on it. My family had a 1400 mile trip scheduled for mid August. The Colgan Custom Bra arrived before the trip. This bra's fit and function was superb. We traveled with the bra on at highway speeds without a problem.After the trip, I cleaned the bra and removed it. The front end was totally protected without one nick or chip. This bra is the best!!!!!
