It isn't even a bumper, it's a lip. The dealer price is $486, so if you buy it for that, pay ~$200 to paint it then install it yourself you save $~700. If you don't want to install it yourself go over to RMP or something and odds are Rocco will install it for $100.

Has anyone ever used this on their car before? Does it really work? Is it worth the money?

Just the thought of paint swirls on my new baby makes me cry like a little girl.

It's a paint sealant, the same stuff you can buy online for $25. It won't protect your car from swirls, nothing can except proper washing. Sealants protect your car from the elements. The stuff they put on will come with a warranty that tells you you need to have it re-applied every 6 months to a year. You're better off either doing it yourself (read this: or taking it to a detailer of your choice.
