Not that the previous design offered any greater protection - I just don't see this as anything functional. Rather than the damage from a minor impact being evident on the exterior - if this so-called bumper is hit right-on then it transfers the damage to the inside of the trunk (which will likely, ultimately, extend to the outside via stress, vibration or some other means).

Am I missing something?
Nope. That's my take. I will be glad when it is gone.

but... DOH! It looks like I don't have all the parts I need to replace it and mount the diffuse. So I will either be fabricating my own or utilizing next day shipping....
