Dang how bad is it? Do you live near the ocean cause that salt water can kill your car and you have a really dark one so the sun prolly kills it too. i guess it doesnt see much garage time.

if its the latin girl whose disturbing u, then tell her to fuck off. if ur bumper is really messed up, then paint it. post some pix, i wanna see how fucked up it is, 1 year is too early. i wonder wut that latin girl drives to laugh at you like that, maybe a riced out civic, or a 1960s mistubishi eclipse.
but yea, celica looks sexy, and a defect on it makes it look pretty bad.

3M makes a 'clear bra' that will all but eliminate further rock damage.
I would suggest getting it repainted, then have the 'bra' installed at your body shop. The stuff is apparently like invisible saran wrap...

Welcome to the world of rock chips.. Dude, I had my car repainted about 4 times now, I just gave up on getting it painted anymore on the front bumper, thats the only thing that chips now. U know what I do, TAKE A DAMN SPRAY PAINT CAN TO IT. Dosen't look as good now but the paint lasts a lot longer now.
