That kinda defeats the purpose of the bumper. It's the 5mph bumper rule that most of north america adopted years ago.... the bumper is supposed to be somewhat flexible with a soft impact structure behind it mounted to the metal frame. It's supposed to withstand a 5mph impact without creating significant damage to the car (no bent frame etc). It's partially to reduce repair costs from small accidents, and partially a pedestrian protection measure. ;)
