Unhappy Anyone using curb alert ?

Even though my 328i base model is oem height, I damaged my front bumper lip on a parking lot curb. What I thought was a minor repair job has been estimated at $240.00. Being that I will be installing new splitters that will even be lower than oem, I think something like "Curb Alert" would be a good investment.
Anyone have experience with this particular make or similar ?

Curb Alert is huge though. I would knock it off in no time leaving my parkade. I suppose factory front PDC isn't low enough to catch curbs, etc?

I usually always reverse in as rear bumper is higher off the ground.

Just learn the length of your car and don't pull in too far. It's that easy.

reverse in, even if you know the length of the car, sometimes your call will stick out too much if other people pull in over the blocks
