Not strong enough. It is a one-time scrape sort of thing. I.e. Some bloke bumped mine at the track 2 weeks ago and the 3M film protected the bumper, but requires replacement film now.

You live close by, so welcome to have a look at mine. I can also show you a tape trick that I use on mine to prevent the lip damage on my driveway.
