Bumper Guards on E93

So every time I'm in the city, I feel like I get a new ding on my bumper. With my new E93, I'm thinking of getting the bumperbully (http://www.bumperbully.com). Only thing is, I'm not sure if it will fit in my trunk due to it being an E93. Also, it looks like the corners are not protected.

Anyone have any experience with these? How about front bumper protection? Is clearbra worth it? Or any other method you guys use would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

bumper bully looks like an invitation for people to nudge your car in a tight space.

They are gross. Get a clear bra man- anything harder would damage through those stupid door mats anyhow.

I agree they look disgusting. However, my buddy has clearbra and they dont protect against the screw dings. Still gets the indentation. How much is clearbra for front and rear bumpet anyways?

Get the bumperguard from tech naissance, it looks half decent and can be taken off quickly too. The bumper bully looks silly as hell and also if there's dust under, it will scratch the paint

Yeah, that's why i hate parking in the city and if you park in a garage you have to worry about door dings.

I'm in the burbs of chicago. I used to live in the city then moved back to the burbs about 5 years ago. I will never move to the city again. Mainly because of parking and cosmetic damage to my car. Lol

Hm, I've never seen the trunk of an e93 in person but it should fit.

The dimensions of the bumperguard is 36" wide and 12" high.

As far as front bumper goes, I'd go for the flexyframe since it looks like a regular front plate mount unlike the bumpshox thing that looks huge and noticeable. Since you don't have a front plate, maybe you should look for spots where people can't park in front of you.

Thanks. The only thing is, there really isn't any trunk space in an E93. BTW, is that Taeyeon in your profile pic? lol. I'm a Yoona and Yuri fan myself. haha

Hey guys, how does the tech naissance actually lock in? I see a few vids but can't figure it out. I figure this is my best option and just stick it long ways in the trunk. Is it heavy?

Steve? Looks like a dense foam rubber type material. Any experiences?

I mean, I only need it to cover the left side of the bumper and middle. Having it right in the middle make the corners too exposed.
