The painted bumpers on all modern cars, Tesla or not, lose their finish when they get in physical contact with hard objects. For a valet parking city dweller like me, this happens more or less daily.
Our garage recommends those massive padded bumper bras that you take on and off when you enter and exit but I feel that the time it takes to take them on and off defeats the purpose of taking the car out of the garage in the first place, namely to get quickly to a destination. They take up plenty of space in the trunk and the dirt between bra and bumper seems to scratch and rub the paint dull.
I am instead considering permanent bumper and nose cone guards, something like this: http://www.amazon.com/BumpTek-RP-60-Bumper-EUROPE-Protection/dp/B00GDHTR...
Perhaps this one would look decent on a black or grey car. I haven't yet found any that look good on my sliver MS though. Any ideas thoughts or experience with bumper guards for MS?
