Was the hood protector a Mazda or aftermarket product?

Is it just the black strip or is there a clear protector covering the rest of the hood?

In Australia the genuine Mazda bonnet (hood) protector mounts on the painted section (fascia) in front of the bonnet (hood).

That's what I'd prefer. It seems less effective if it it's not installed at the leading edge painted surface. I've already got my first paint chip on the little piece above the grille.
This part, correct?

Strange that Mazda offers different protection for different continents.
do our rocks have different trajectory than yours ?
