Here are the instructions you seek:
- fold the bra carefully
- place in the original plastic bag
- place back in the original carton
- return for refund

I've seen these things when visiting the US, but you just don't see them
I've always presumed they're for protection against stone chips, but
other questions I have are:
1. What other purpose do they serve?
2. What's the bulge/roll thing that you sometimes see at the top
trailing edge for?
3. Why on earth would anyone consider making their car look so bad?
As you said, they are intended to protect the leading edge paint from being
It is an airfoil intended to keep the trailing edge of the bra from flapping.
See item 1.
Unfortunately, there are more problems caused by using a bra than not. The
most glaring is trapping moisture under the bra. You'll be hella sorry if the
car ends up in the hot sun with a soggy bra, so you take to removing it before
it rains and not putting it back until nice weather arrives. Which pretty much
means you can't use them all winter (if you have an actual winter).
And the second huge problem is they are grit magnets. If you keep a nice wax
job on your car and leave a bra on it and park it just about anywhere near
civilization, air-borne grit will accumulate under the trailing edge, just
waiting to be ground into the paint when you hit the highway and that trailing
edge airfoil does its thing.
On that second score, take it from someone who learned the hard way, back in
1972 with a brand new 240z. The bra lasted one week, until I discovered a band
of scuffed paint right under that trailing edge.
No way would I ever stick a bra on my car again...

Won't the bra trap more moisture that might cause the paint to fade?
But we have snow where I am!
What do you expect the bra to do?
I have heard that it should be warm so it is more flexible before you install
it on a nice clean car.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way,
when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them, and you have their
shoes. Frieda Norris
Bra's are for holding breasts, and thats all they need to do, why would
anyone want to make the front of there car look like shit especially an S4
which looks great from the front.
If your worried about stone chips/bugs/snow just get a can of black
hammerite and spray the front of your car,
Return it for a refund. had one on a car once & was totally shocked when
i removed it. the whole nose had petty much been sand blasted from the
dust that gets trapped underneath it. i have a brand new bra for my TT
that the dealer gave me & i wont even use it. its still in the sealed
box where it belongs . if you've ever seen a truck bed after removing
the liner.... thats what your cars nose will look like.
