      Looking to see where I can source them. Everywhere I see is overseas and some don't ship to the USA.

      Just get an 18-36 inch clear bra installed. It will protect more and look a hell of a lot better.

      80s - people got car bras
      90s/early-00s - people got hood deflectors
      mid-00s onward - clear bra/PPF becomes the norm

      We've come a long way and thankfully so. Don't go back to the 90s.

      Additionally I have to say, the 8Ps front end, the way the hood curves down and the bumper design, it really doesn't look like it's "meant" to have something like a hood deflector--just looks awkward and out of place, IMO.

      I mean whatever floats your boat, it's your car, but there are actually some cars that look decent with a deflector on. The 8P A3 is not one of them.

      Last time I got a hood deflector was for my old 00 Subaru Impreza, and that was purely to cover up the giant rust hole where the emblem used to be. It did the job but gathered twigs and leaves like crazy. The front end of the A3 looks better without it IMO.

      Why do people have such a hard time using Google?

      Thats a bra bro, not a deflector. You could also use google to learn the difference. Ha!

      Or you could get some taste to begin with and just go with clear bra. BRO! What are you like 12?

      This guy ....relax pal. If you dish it, you gotta be able to take it....Bras are easy to find, deflectors are not. If I was thinking about a bra, dark or clear, I wouldn't have even asked the question.
