i live in a crowded neighborhood... people tend to back up into my front bumper leaving scratches... anyone have any recommendation of something that i can take off and put on easily on my front bumper that will prevent these scratches

Ha ha, thats an awesome idea.

Get one of those police bull bar things with some quick releases and find a spot to mount it somewhere, then you can just pull it on and off.

I am sure this will take some major retrofitting, but hey, it might be dooable.

Could get a bra, I know they suck, but you can pull it off when you don't need it. Thats a minor price for saving some paint.

they make semiflexible rubber strips you could adhere to your bumper. as long as they only bump, your paint should be ok

Try something like this: SPIKES

Just make it so you can screw them on to your bumper when you get out adn them if someone does smash into your car they get messed up. ROFL
