I think I'm leaning towards the same approach Dave...wrap just the front bumper.
My e60 M5 had the entire car wrapped with clear bra (was like that when i bought it used) and I loved the simplicity of maintenance. I really didn't notice scratches or dings in it and thought the silverstone paint shined through beautifully. Maybe because the whole car was wrapped, I didn't know what I was missing?
Shelling out 2k for a partial protective wrap seems a little excessive to me.
Oh BTW - I live in SD too...you gotta let me in on the mountain roads you cruise. I'll be interested in getting out there once (IF???) my car arrives.
