    Bumper alignment issue?

    Is it normal for the older MS to have a gap between the bumper and the headlights. It doesn’t really show well on photos but you can that I can push the bumper to align it with the headlight. It’s not that bad on the facelifted s. I can’t really see any damage under the bumper either.

    Front a Bumper Lip Protection

    I have a 2018 MS 100D and I’m concerned about damaging the bottom of the front bumper lip. I know PPF will protect the front-end, but pulling up against curbing will tear right through that film. Can anyone recommend a product that will protect the bottom of the lip?? Thanks!

    Has anyone scratched their front bumper on a parking lot curb or parking block?

    This is my Silver AWD Model 3 front bumper in the parking lot at my work. As you can see there is very little clearance and if I moved in just a little further the front bumper would have been scraped by the curb. The height seems to be higher in my Model S, as I never have issues with...
