New type of bumper protection

There is a thread on here recently about the cost of bumper replacement costing an average of $1200. With this bumper guard you can prevent such a costly repair to your ride. It would also protect against damage from shopping carts in parking lots like walmart and grocery stores. A lot of lazies around here that just leave the cart anywhere and its just going to roll into someone's bumper and damage it. Also it protects against fender bender type damage that happens in parking lots too.

What do you think about this? Good way to protect your ride?

These kinds of things make sense in cities where you have to street park (Toronto, Vancouver, NYC, etc). Bad drivers usually park by feel (ie. when their bumper hits yours).

If I started finding damage to my bumper, I would surely install this protector on my car!

I've seen bumper guards like these but not this extreme in New York.

In most Asian cities, I see most cars bumpers ruined, usually around the corners.

So variations of these are popular.

Yes, these ones are common in NYC

The ones in the OP look comical to me - I'm not trying to prevent against someone ramming me, I'm trying to prevent small dings and scratches.

Also, to be pedantic, this is about protecting the bumper cover not protecting the bumper.

I'm curious if folks drive around with the first few (porsche/bmw designs) in regards to blocked plates
And yes I'm pretty sure some folks would be driving around with them still on :P

Might as well wrap a guard all around like a go kart.

Edit: DIY version

There's a beige Toyota Camry out there in the GTA with a steel fence post on front and rear bumpers. I'm sure some GTA drivers have seen it, I've taken and seen pics of it on RFD. I am looking for it now. That car is the first thing I thought of before clicking on this thread.

I'd rather see scratches on my bumper than these ugly things. You know this is a "quality" product when their promo photos show blocked headlights.

I think if you put this on your bumper, you are more likely to get hit.

I think this is for when your parked, not for use when driving.

If I saw this, I'd bump you just to test how soft it is.
