Games Curb Alert - Protect the lower front bumper?

Has anyone found a good "curb detector" for our low front bumpers? Considering the "curb alert" unit...Has anyone installed one? Problems installing? Cautions?
Why doesn't Lexus offer such a product in their aftermarket products? Would be a great addition, even should be an option (or standard equipment)...Comments?

Buy a back up camera and back it in when you park

The range rover has like 5 camera to show all views and i think the new one is having one under the motor so you can see the ground when hill climbing.

I did that with my IS300. The camera is mounted behind the bumper. I don't know if this would be a realistic option on a 2IS, but it worked for me.

Here's a trick.

As you pull in - Look at the car next to you as you park, try to see you own reflection.

Never had a problem... Now some cars may not be as clean as others.

I do agree with above tho. "Back-In" LOL
