Wind deflector / hood protector for 2012

Has anyone purchased the Toyota OEM hood protector shown in the 2012 accessories catalog?
http://touch.toyota.com/vehicles/201...Protector.html

I ordered my 2011 with that nasty POS with the metal clips that gouge the paint. I carefully removed in 1st week of ownersship and got the low profile (under hood mount) from Cabelas, it has worked pretty good although isn't the sleekest look.

The new 2012 OEM Toyota hood protector looks pretty cool, can't believe Toyota would open themselves up for more $ in hood repaint, If it's an under hood mount and would fit the 2011 I would consider.

Thanks

I wouldn't recommend an OEM bugshield unless it doesn't have those metal clips b/c they will hit your hood and chip it. I have an AVS on mine and love it, it fastens right in no drilling! Wind deflector / hood protector for 2012-100_2212.jpg

How are you liking the OEM for the 12?

I had the OEM for an 06 and never had any of the claimed problems.
