I dunno if it’s just me.. I’m still getting used to my 117 being a little lower than my previous ride.

Several times i reversed into wheel stopper and kerbs and got caught, slight stuck at the stopper. I inched forward.. grinded and scratched the lower part of the rear bumper (the parts on both sides at the rear wheel).

The only way is not to reverse too much with the front part slightly out of the parking lot. Anyone feeling the same ordeal I am feeling?

I feel pain to see those scratches and dent to the lower part of the bumper, but what kinda repair should I do? Even after repair it may end up being scratched again.

Same car same situation here... Btw I'm on 19" wheel... I did send my car for in for respray but within a week, i got it again.. so decide leave it since it is not so visible underneath.  

I think I have to just choose to leave it.. but need to check and confirm the damage done. It seems like the bumper part is 'disconnected' from the black plastic part. Will have to park inches out of the parking lot to avoid further damages.

Same for my previous CLA ride. Was on 18 inch wheel. Try not to go all the way near the stones wheel stoppers

Yeah now I’m like paranoid. It’s become a routine that after parked got make sure not all the way.. then check the gap between stopper and bumper. Hope I’ll get used to this soon.

I broke the front portion of the black plastic holder that is securing the clips at the bottom of the bumper... use a black cable tie to secure it the clip the bumper back in place.... Some of the carpark stone wheel stoppers at HDB carparks are like for lorry usage...

Ouch! I might have broken or damaged the part of the bumper edge that has the slot which holds the black part. I have not really examined cos was quite dim, and I just tried to push the two parts to connect back again, which I don't think it's 'connected' completely. I need to find a brighter area to examine.. probably later. Some stoppers really are too high.. i tot standard is like 15cm which dun even need so high.. One of those that caught me was obviously higher than 15cm. They think people are numb or what..
