I live in NYC, getting hit when parked is unavoidable in NYC. My Impreza 5 door is dark grey, I have the Bumper Bully back guard Black Ed and the front plate BumpShox. both match the color of the car very well. The front BumpShox works well. Haven't see any scratch yet. As for the back, the guard protects most area, except the corners. (Already got a scratch). So you need to get a pair corner bumpers as well. FYI, the paint on the Impreza is super thin, over the Hurricane Sandy, one of the roof shingle felt on the driver side door of my car. and it left some minor but visible scratches.
