2008 E350 front lower valance protection?


As mentioned in another thread, I purchased a 2008 last year. On the the second day of ownership, GF scraped front center lower bumper goign out a driveway. Then after that, until getting fixed, I really didn't car but found its very easy to scrape it.

Then the front end was vandalized and these scrapes were fixed in the process.

Then the valet scraped and refused to pay. Lucky the front wasn't finished with the body work process and my body shop repainted for free.

Now its all nice and pretty in the front again. So my question:

What can I install to protect the bottom of the front bumper from getting all scraped up. I don't care much for the E63 style carbon fiber as its very obtrusive. I am looking for something a little more low profile, like a glue on pad, or a plastic piece that hangs down so it scrapes first so i know i am close. Something not so visible but so that I wont scrape the front bumper again.
