Couple months later (new lights , same bumper) going ~35mph in rush hour a lady in the right lane decides I don't exist and tries to switch into mine. I all but stop to keep from hitting her and BANG, I get smoked from behind by some other lady.
Bumper I think had another little cut, but pretty much fine, so i replace the lights & basically another free $800 from her insurance.
So, yeah, they're plastic, but they're pretty tough and pay well
