I agree. I bought one of these (Toyota brand) for a Camry and it did horrible things to the finish in less than 1000 miles. Never again.
The 3M "clear bra" protection is an adhesive film that protects the painted surface, and can be removed later when it gets scratched up. I've had good luck with that. In high wear areas, it's good for a few years. Then you can peel it off and have a brand new finish or apply another one.
