: Rear bumper paint damage

Anybody have experience with their four legged friends scratching up the paint on the rear bumper from entry and egress?

Any cure?

Any known suppliers of a rubber (?) padding for the top side of the bumper?

I have seen some different bumper guards which match the running board covers. Ill see if i can find a link. they are out there....

Thanks for that referral.....that looks like just what I had in mind!

They say it is a "Genuine BMW Part"

Any idea why it's not in he BMW dealer's catalog and they know nothing about it??

Just picked up a new accessories catalog for X3s at the dealer. This part is in there.
