I purchased the Wade 72-99124 Smoke Tint Platinum Bug Shield for a 2011 Nissan Xterra. I really wanted to find a bug shield that installed without drilling into the hood. This particular brand is the closest that I could find. The product quality is excellent - it is perfectly contoured for the hood and it looks great installed. The price was excellent - under $40 with free shipping through Prime. After reading all of the reviews, I believed that the two center screws along with the lateral adhesive tape would be more than sufficient. The center screws hold the bug shield into two holes already present in the hood. The lateral tape would eliminate the need for drilling any extra holes into the hood. In the box: the bug shield well-wrapped by protective foam padding, a single sheet of decent instructions, two larger screws, two smaller screws, two plastic washers, and two rubber grommets. The bad news and the reason for only 4 stars instead of 5 - there was no adhesive tape, not...
Great product... BUT my Xterra does not have screw holes for the outer mounts, so I would have to drill through my hood. It did state that you can use 3M tape which they said on the instructions was included but it was not. I picked some heavy duty 2 sided 3M tape up and the mounts on the wind guard are not flush with the hood so a very small portion touches the tape. So I'm sure it will not hold long. I'll probably end up drilling the holes but I'd rather it was made to sit flush and the tape which should have been included would work.
The bug shield is a nice looking product, and mounting it was not much of a problem.The only thing I wondered about was the instruction sheet it came with. The instructions were pretty much general and probably were for different vehicles.I have a 2014 Nissan Xerra and the instructions stated that there was a tear off tape as part of the mounting. There wasn't any tape, just two mounting screws that fit into existing brackets on the shield and into the vehicle's hood.That part was easy, but in order to finish mounting it, two holes had to be drilled into the outer edges of the shield to align it correctly. Once done, I was satisfied with the result.
