I recommend realizing it's a car, and that the hood--especially on
modern cars--will get chipped.
Don't be anal, and just plan on accepting the chips. Repaint if it gets
too bad, but that's way down the road.
No chips on mine. Almost 6 yrs old with a hood edge protector.
Multiple chips on my wife's. Same age car and she declined on the hood edge
I'm getting sick of having to touch them up every spring.
Personally, I wouldn't bother with either. As others have noted, bras
can create more problems than they solve. Years ago I was warned against
them because they trapped moisture, which could affect the paint (along
with chafing, etc.). Don't know if this is still a problem, but I'm sure
others here know.
