I have a brand new audi a1 but at my place there is lots of traffic and cars easily bump into you when parking. Is there anything like some sort of bumper protector? I need something that is effective but doesn't spoil the look of the car...?

Unfortunately in this case, thats a bit of a contradiction in terms, Universal bumper protectors / car mouldings are available but look pretty unsightly. If you do want one youll find them on ebay.

Nothing exists yet, you could get onto the guys that came up with Star Trek and ask them about forcefields? That could help but i'd imagine quite expensive.

Alternatively you can just park as far away from everyone as possible!

What about that clear film that rich folk stick on the front of their porsches and the like to protect from fly splats and stone chips? Should stop the odd rub mark as well I'd have thought.

Yes, i'm fairly sure Kelly (KDS) can do this if you are in his area if not there will be plenty of local fitters
