    i guess ohio doesn't have the speed traps that TX has... :) I agree this needs to be used cautiously, but it's really impressive.
    Here's a video link when it was installed on my last car:

    Thank you all for your feedback. So I decided to try and remove it today. I've had my car for 7 weeks now. I removed the front screws and pulled the bracket away from the underlying plastic piece and examined the condition of the bumper and I found out that the paint/top coat is slightly scratched where the edges of the bracket come in touch with it. This might have resulted from the bracket vibrating against it while driving on the highway.
    I guess this might have been prevented had I removed it right after delivery. Something to think about for future owners.
