In November of '05 I installed a clear bra on my car. The car hasn't seen too much mileage as it isn't my daily driver; however, it looks as good as the day it was put on. The front of the car is still unblemished. I did have one instance where I knew I took a direct hit from a rock on the highway. You could see it in slow motion as t was traveling towards the front of your car and then you could hear the impact. I freaked out. When I had a chance to look at it, I found that the 3M plastic on the corner edge of the front bumper was nicked and had a cut in it, but to my surprise,the car's finish was free from any nicks, chips or dents.
The clear bra (or 3M calls it a protective paint shield) gets washed and waxed just like anything else. You can't see it unless you're standing right over the car. If you're using your Pony as a daily driver, I would strongly recommend this product. If you have it installed (I would also strongly suggest) it is a little pricey; anywhere from $400 - F&I hood only, or up to $700 for hood, front end, the rockers, and behind the wheels.
