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 just installed it yesterday, so hopefully it stays on, but it looks great, and at this point seems to be a high quality product. It was far easier to install than I had anticipated. Not being good with my hands,(am an accountant) I am always concerned when I get done with something around the house until it has been used for awhile.

This is the second bra I have ordered. The first was for a 2000 BMW 323ci. I was very please with that one. This new one for a 2008 135i convertible is even better. There are more clips to attach to the car. The two piece construction allows for easy access to the engine. I drove 700 miles the day I put it on and not one issue. GREAT product!! The carbon fiber finish give it a high performance look!

The fit is ok along with the finish but the design dosnt work anything over sisty miles and hour and it tents up like it going to blow off the car I had the smaller bra before I just wanted one in the carbon fiber look the only thing I can do with it is have it customized by an uhpolstry shop . I hate giving someone a bad review on a product but this is a design flaw Im afraid this is going to cause an accident the way wind gets under it

They didn't try to look at coverage on the wheel wells. Would have expected this from La Bra at there price range. I would have thought at Colgans price you would get a much better custom bra.

This is a great bra. I did have to use a couple zip ties on it though. I would like to see the screen in the bottom opening as well. The addition of the screen would keep bugs out of the radiator and fix the zip tie issue.

Recd bra fast. Great price compared to other vendors. The bra fits as well as can be expected due to the shape of the smart nose. Made for years up to 2012, but ordered for my 2014 brabus model. Only very slight modification needs to be made on the bottom for a tight fit. Also fits 2014 passion my friend ordered for. Will use for towing behind a motorhome.
