Not sure if you've installed it yet but, I put mine on before wax. I made sure the bumper was clean and wiped with the alcohol wipes supplied.
One thing I would recommend is to leave both the car and protector in the sun for about 20-30 min before applying. This will help the adhesive (at least for me it did) I had heard a lot of people complain of bubbles or the protector lifting after they install it. I have had it on for over a year. It's been in cold and hot climates and no bubbles, lifting or any other issues.
Also do not stretch when installing just place it from the center and press down outward for it to stick. The other advantage to applying it when it's warm/hot is you have a little bit of time to work with it. Prior to putting on the protector I marked center on the car and protector so once I put it on I did not have to try to move it around at all. Went on extremely easy.
I did not get the factory protector I hear it's a little thin but if it works what the heck. I wanted to protect the top as well as the lip so I opted for a different protector.
Here is the finished product, it's been on for almost a year now with no issues. Just my two cents.
Please tell me where you got that from. That is exactly what I've been looking for since I bought my 2011 a couple years ago.
I need one that covers the EDGE of the rear bumper, something the OEM protector doesn't cover. The edge of my rear bumper is all scuffed up from my dealer (of all people) lifting my tires in and out when I had them do the all-season/winter tire change-over. The paint is completely gone right on the corner, they scuffed it right down to the bare plastic (fiberglass, whatever it is). They swore up and down they didn't do that, but I know it wasn't like that when I took it in.
