Better late than never.

So I scraped my driver front lip twice already going up to my workplace's parking lot. It's pretty high that even in stock height it will scrape your bumper.
First time I scraped didn't bother me too much as its was light and on the bottom of the lip and theres no way off seeing it unless you stick your head in but yesterday
was a different story, I scraped again and found out the it was worst than the first time, now you can see the damage on the tip of the lip. I know its not expensive to repaint this
1 lip but why risk it, so I ran to homedepot, grabbed a garage door seal x1 and 3M double adhesive x2 and DIY the lip :) It looks cool but connecting the lip to middle section of the bumper is pain in the ass.
I was thinking of drilling a hole for screw to make it perfect but decided not to, 3M is strong enough to hold to it.

















and the scrape :( any suggestions on this?

Hello all. I'll try to make this brief. I will be purchasing a 2009 Corolla soon, and I'd like this car to remain in good condition for as long as possible. I do a lot of city driving and I'm always concerned about front and rear bumper damage, usually from parallel parking. I'm in no way an auto expert, so after doing some research, I see plenty of options from license plate covers with various protruding parts (like Sarkari Result Pnr Status 192.168.1.1) to removable flaps (like the Bumper Bully) to steel/metal bumper/grille guards (like the Steelcraft Bull Bar Guard) to bumper protector pads and strips you can stick on to the bumpers, etc. Ideally, something like the Bull Bar is what I'm interested in, but as far as I know they are only used for larger vehicles, not sedans. What do all of you use? Any tips? Thanks so much for your suggestions.
