or... who has scraped their bumper less than 10 times?

I just bought the SAP front for my torrid red to cover what I have done.

Supprising, I've never scraped mine, but I also tend to park 1-2 ft from the parking curbs.

I scraped mine on a curb pulling into a parking spot, if that wasn't bad enough when it came back off the curb it got the front edge on the bottom..very visible. The only good thing about this was while it was in the body shop I had them get rid of the front license plate bracket and all the stone chips.

I haven't! I take all driveway dips etc. at an angle and slow down while driving up or down them. Pays off.

Yes & No, In 41 years of driving I have never scraped the bottom of the bumper on any of the cars I had. However, the used 2004 GTO that I bought looks like the previous owner used the front bumper as a road grader, there are hundreds scraches, gouges, and in some places it is down to the black material that the bumper is made of. But, the good news is you can't see any of this unless you crawl under the car. The rest of the car is in mint condition and only had 8000 miles on it when I bought it in May

I've scraped mine a few times also. I can't imagine anyone who really drives their goat not too. Parking stops, dips, speed humps, steep pitch driveways it'll happen sooner or later.

I've got the MidwestPd front splitter on now so hopefully it'll prevent the auto-drive paint removal.

I have committed that sin a few times in the 20+ years I've been driving. Not on the GTO, but my daughter's done it ... That's why I haven't painted the SAP fascia extension body color yet!

Got mine scraped. When I was coming into my drive way at an angle (so not to scape the exhaust, my driveway is has a nice incline) went up on the border block (not paying attention).
