I would probably choose option 2 if financially you can manage that cost. If you were to choose option one, I would be afraid of any shade difference from the old clear bra to the portion of the new one they replace. Also, knowing there is probably a good chance the paint will peel off on the older parts of the bra, you're better off just doing the whole thing to save you the trouble and worry. Good for another 5 years at least. As another member posted, option 3 I wouldn't even choose. Our car is so low, it is almost impossible to avoid anything. Even the little gravel that gets tossed up can cause a chip on the front. Idk if that $1850 is the best they can do, but I would try to still negotiate that. Good luck with your decision.

EDIT: Looks like you replied as I was typing up lol. Glad you chose that route. It'll feel like a new car when you get it back haha.
