Rear Bumper Top Protection

Wondering if anyone has found a good looking and not Chrome Top of the rear bumper protector

I have seen the invisible ones and the metal ones that don't look very good to me in most pics,

I was hoping to find one like the Mazda CX-5 one, they sell it for like 80.00 and its partially see through and partially satin silver, with a nice blue rim around it, in person it looks real nice and is just enough to keep stuff from scruffing up the bumper top. And actually adds the the nice look as opposed to making it look cheap, I want to avoid the plastic invisible ones, I have seen some of those that look like dirt gets up under the edge and sometimes they peel around the edge once they age.

Seems to be mad of metal and plastic combined.

Thanks

I was thinking that if I get a clear bra done, I may just ask the shop if they can put an extra strip on the bumper.

Wish I could get a good pic of the Mazda one, they took the time to make it look really nice, not Chrome over the top, not clear, but a mix. Might not protect as much , but it will offer some, I may order one of those and see if it fits, it looks like is just sticks on anyway and it very attractive, does not say Mazda on it either,

Tried to get a measurement and like most, Mazda dealers are not the brightest,

Thanks for the input.
