My front bumper keeps scraping because our roads are so up and down.

Are there skid plates or something one can put on the bottom to prevent the plastic from being damaged?

I am having the same problem. In fact I am waiting for touch up paint (have been waiting for months) to take care of the scratches. If anybody has any good suggestions how to minimize the damage that would be great.

There is a vertical protective lip hanging down behind the bumper. If you are approaching inclines or coming out of a driveway, then that should hit/scrape before the bumper. The only way the bumper cover gets scratched is if you rub it on top of parking spot stops or drive quickly up or down inclines so that the shocks gets compressed. So, what I do is try to take steep inclines at an angle instead of straight on and do it at a slow speed. Also, stop short in parking spots or back into parking spots. If you back in then stop the car when the concrete barrier is about to disappear out of view on the camera.
Cheers,

I have this same problem.. I am not an idiot driving fast in and/or out of driveways... This happens while driving the car braking hard etc...

every car I have driven has not done this.. CLS, E550, California, Gallardo, quatroporte
I've driven the cars all the same.. Hard
my escalade doesn't even dive into corners or under hard braking like this.. haha
the magnetic ride control is legit.

[edit]
haha.. that sounded a little negative.. The car is amazing.. I love every day driving it.. I have actually forgotten how awesome it is to drive.. been sitting in the garage for 4 days..

Kylekeith, are you saying that when you're driving hard, braking hard, the actual bumper cover rubs on the road? The painted part? Not just the lip?

Sounds like we need a video to see what's going on here...

Does anyone know however of a solution to this? Generic small skid plates that could be mounted that hit the ground first before the lip?[hr]

I would say... maybe add bump stop on the control arms so the front doesn't dip as far in the front..
I would rather the suspension bottom out then the front end scrape..
