Clear Bra on VW Logo

I put a clear bra on my 2019 R. Has anyone put a clearbra over the front emblem? I'm concerned it'll mess with the sensors. thanks

I took a deep dive through radar stuff a little while back.

what I found is that generally, non-metallic materials of uniform density and thickness generally don't affect radar to the point that it'd make a meaningful impact for our use. Non-uniform materials can have a more substantial impact though.

I have had PPF over my front emblem since day two, and it functions just fine.

I have a smoked tint over it and I've been okay.

Well, good enough for me - I'll get that put on tomorrow.

Living in Arizona, there are tons of rocks on the road so protecting the car as much as possible is what I'm looking to do. I already have a clear bra on the entire front end, roof, and rear bumper...
