Just installed on my Silver FX and am liking the looks. I notice most pics on this forum don't have them on. Any issues with them?

Let's see a photo.
Here you go. Installed yesterday in Oklahoma, driven 700 miles back home to Mississippi. I did notice a slight reduction in noise. More importantly, very little bug carcass on the windshield!

It looks like it's sporting a mustache.

The clear bra or Colgan bra protects different areas and would work in conjunction with the bug defelctor. As it's name implies, the deflector's primary function is to alter aerodynamics, thereby deflecting bugs over the windshield; the fact that it protects the hood is a fringe benefit. I may pick one up just to put on for road trips (already have the clear bra).

Hey, you should name your car "Groucho"!!

I really like the look though. Is that an OEM FX accessory?

Does it attach to the hood on the underside and does it touch the top surface of the hood anywhere?
They give you little squares of clear bra material that are applied to the hood where it clamps down (little padded thumb screws). Your paint is protected.

Yep, OEM. At first all the clamps & screws looked intimidating to assemble. Turns out a very easy install.

hey fins i'm stuck on instruction #5 - it speaks about a bumper stop included with kit, does this go next to, or in place of the one already under the hood at that location?

PINITI-FX,
the bumper stop replaces the original.

thanks fins , i wish they made that clearer in the instructions - it does become obvious only after you remove them.

So, I would get the clear bra and bug deflector from my local Infiniti dealer? Thanks.

I'd suggest finding a local clear bra installer yourself. Dealers charge out the @ss for it.

OK, then, so I still go to the Infiniti dealer for the bug deflector? Thanks.
