Is there any way I can protect my paint from chips. They recommend that i get the paint protection film. Is there anyplace I can get the paint protection film besides the dealer?

There are a lot of places that can do what is called a "clear bra" for your iQ. I had it done to mine the first week I owned the car. Mine was done freehand but there are now patterns available from 3M so the price is less and the installation is easier.

I'm not sure what area you live in so just Google clear bra and your city to see if somewhere close come up. It's a great way to protect your paint.

That place in murrieta wants $625 installed. The pre-cut 3m film sells for $240 shipped on eBay. Im tempted to try and install it myself.

Just be forewarned, it's a pain in the butt to install and make it look good. Lots of tight corners to deal with.

Thats why I haven't done it. I had a hard enough time installing a screen protector on my iPad and my kids DS. Lol. $400 for a couple hours work is kinda steep...assuming they are using the pre-cut film.
