I've gotten a couple of tiny scrapes, nothing too major although one must've broke a clip or something that holds the bumper cover on, because my bumper sticks out from under one of the headlights where normally its sort of tucked under it, it's very minor and probably fixable and most people don't notice it until I point it out.

I have scrapes but can't see them, so out of sight, out of mind. But since it is so low, I installed one of these, against the time the curb I can't see is damage-danger high:

But even though the sensor is only a little more than half inch high, it bottomed in everyday road dips. The snout on these things get's really low! So I mounted it on top of the lower lip just in front of the grill. It worked for a time but now is beeping randomly so I'm going to scrap it.

Yea those rolled curbs are a nightmare for just about anything but a truck or SUV, i've heard even full size sedans scraping if the driver goes just a little too fast or angles it wrong.

Besides the usual chips from flying rocks on highways, some paint rubbed off of the "fang" area from a front lip I had on the car for a summer. Would never do again.

My car wears them as a badge of honor. My wife says I had a huge grin after I scraped my first speed bump. #Lowlyfe #MinitruckerInMyBlood
