Thats your actual bumber ( most people confuse that with the plastic they see which is the bumper cover.)

It's a very bad idea just to save a few pounds. Its designed to have some level of give to help save lives in an accident.

You could also remove your seats belts to loss even more weight!

You'd be screwed in an accident. I had to take my rear one off because it was smashed to sh!t. Would't do much good because it was a rusty smashed up metal i still meed to get a new one. Previous owner got rear ended. Pretty bad too. Just replaced the trunk and bumper cover to cover it up. The car looked normal when I got it but upon closer inspection there are crumples in my trunk close to the rear seats and the chassis looks like it got scrunched up a bit because the rear wheel wells are not the same length from the tire to metal. Moral of the story. Those bumpers WILL save your life

No not at all. I like the feel, but the noise sometime is annoying.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the steel bars also add to the structural rigidity in incline situations as well? Like going up steep driveways at an angle..

I thought the bars were only rated for a 5mph impact.

The bars may be rated for 5mph impact but that's not all they are for. When you you get hit they take most of the force and it slows down the energy of impact before getting to the frame. Some things on your car are meant to break in an accident so other things won't break, like your fascias and bumper bars.
