    Default protection against stone chips

    I've just bought a facelift vectra which I'll be picking up on Tuesday. The paintwork is in nice nick and I'd like to keep it that way. One thing that always annoyed me on my Astra was the front bumper was peppered with stonechips. Is there any products that can help protect the bumper? I won't be putting a bra on my car though lol

    Thanks in advance.
