    3M or X-pel paint protection film, shop around for an installer with good reviews and reasonable pricing.

    This is my biggest issue with those PPF products, they crack and age horribly and very likely damage paint upon removal 5 years later. I have been looking for a nosemask without any luck. It's unfortunate Honda chose not to offer one for this car.

    It's hard to see it well because the site compresses it a lot.

    I have had paint-protection film on two cars for seven years. No peeling, fading or cracking. The quote I received for the CR-V was $750. I purchased a Coverking nose mask from CarID, but the one they sent me was for a 2015-2016 model. Coverking swore it was the right item, in spite of the photos I sent.

    But what about removal? And the residue on the paint and so on. I guess I'm doubloons that something sticking on the paint for so long won't cause permanent damage or marking of some kind on the paint.

    I hear you.

    Just an anecdote, though: I had 3M film installed on my 2005 Honda Accord and it remained on the car until I traded it in a few months ago. Over 10 years with no peeling, discoloration, or surface defects.

    I am considering getting Xpel Ultimate on my CR-V. I'm not worried about removal: I never plan to remove it. It is a significant cost though ($400-$1000) and you can buy a lot of touch-up paint with that kind of money!

    I had xpel on a 00 4Runner and sold the car in 2014. The xpel was cracked into many pieces and wanted to remove it prior to selling the car. Used a blow drier and plastic razors to remove it. Took several days. It was visible that the clear coat had worn differently under the xpel. After that I had sworn the stuff off.

    That's what the photo I shared looks like. Impossible to remove.
