Bumper Bully: wrong?

Bumper Bully: wrong?

I rarely find the need to parallel park now that I have a garage, but having lived in cities most of my life I'm very familiar with the effect on bumpers from people using the Helen Keller parking method. I saw this on a 5 series BMW last night. It's very ugly, but I hate the thought of someone scratching up my Signature Red.

It would be a sin to defile a beautiful car like the Model S with that thing IMHO. It's even worse than the plastic covers my grandma used to have on all her furniture.

Yikes! I'd rather repair the bumper than drive around with that thing on the car!

Looked at a few of the ads/vids: the rear guards stow away when you're not parked.

Yeah, you install and remove easily as needed.

My only concern would be that people would be even less careful seeing that you had such protection on your car.

olanmills +1. "Helen Keller parking method" in steroids: literally push the parked car in front of you to make space for your car. Have seen that.

I like the cushy nose cone ...

I think it should cover more of the corners of the bumpers as they are vulnarable as well. Seen that big time. I think it should also come with 2 inch spikes, and it's nice you can stow one in the frunk and one in the runk when not in use.

Runk? Really now? Let's not make that a thing too!

o_o

jbunn | September 17, 2012

What else could it be? It's certainly not a trunk. Must be a runk.

Why didn't he just cover it in bubble wrap? That works )BP

That's just an invitation for everyone to come poke your car.
