Indeed nacho, that's me that has it, and can't wait to take it off. I don't know if I can be categorized as a 'hater', but even if so, it comes with the personal experience of having one.

I can confirm that it has yellowed (and highly visible at that even though the car is blue), and 3M has done zippo on that alleged warranty speculated above. And here are the stats on the car: have had it for 4 yrs, Northeast, 31K miles on the car, and car is being garaged 24/7, all highway mileage, so it has not been 'beat up' by the sun over its lifespan, in fact it has been quite babied.

Given the proclaimed warranty is not something the manufacturer steps up to the plate on, the cost of a 3M is the same as respraying the bumper, so going forward I'll likely opt for that rather than endure the rather ugly look of a 3M bra (or perhaps VentureShield as reviews seem to be good).

So back on topic to the trakk tape...
