well, if you happen to be driving in a cold rain, you'll instantly notice smoke arising from the surface of the hood, nothing to it, just heat transfer, but it may also shortens the paint life, but that haven't happend to me yet.

I wouldn't worry about taking it off because the XE models didn't even come with it. Only the GXE and up were blessed with this feature.

Yeah I took mine off about 3 months ago. I'm liking it so much better. It looks so much nicer under the hood now, with that big black thing hiding the paint, out.

Like JlewisiSyr said, the XE models didn't even come with them from the factory so I wouldn't worry about your paint getting messed up from taking it off. Mine has had no problems at all. :cool:
