Did A Clear 3M Paint Protection On My X5

Let's Here The Feedback What Do You Guys Think? Would You Ever Do It? I've Heard Rumors Of The Product Being Bad For the Paint In The Removal Process However The Way I See It, Why Would I Take Off What I Can't See? And Why Would I Remove Something That Is Meant To Protect My Paint From Chips And Scratches? Not To Mention 3M Is Supposedly The Best Product On The Market For Its Purpose. I Guess I'll Just Have To Wait And See. What Are Your Guys Opinions??

Ive had it on all my 4 past BMWs with no issues. Does a very good job of protection, as its meant to do.
They have improved the film, so it does not yellow anymore(at least the 3m version.)

I had it on my VW CC. I think it was great, but then I took it to the dealer for service and they scratched it! I had them remove it. The manager said it cost him $100 to do it and it looked great. After 3 years, there was no damage to the car.

The CC was black, and the pain underneath was like new when i got the clear bra taken off. I couldn't tell if it had any discoloration

what did you spray to lubricate the car to apply? I believe people have yellowing due to the soap/lubricant used, not the bra itself.
