Bumpers on cars – and not the kind you think

From the second I walked out of the airport upon arriving in Korea I noticed something interesting about some of the cars here.  It seems that there are no “old, beater-up” cars here but everyone has a new and always polished car.  That was interesting but not the weird thing I saw.  The odd aspect of the cars here was this:

After I figured out what these were I thought, though unsightly, they were a pretty good ideas.  They are little bumpers on the side of car doors so you never get “nicked” by another car that parked too close and you don’t slam your polished car door into anyone else’s polished car door.  Smart but I don’t know if I would put one on my Lexus (that is when I get one..ha ha..)
