Hey all,<p>Well I feel pretty angry about this I couldn't beleive what I did. Pulling into my gym today I wasn't probably paying as much attention as I should have. As I went into my space I started breaking but noticed how close I was to the curb in the front, by the time I had done it hard enough to stop all motion the car had already touched and rocked forward with enough motion to do this <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> :<p><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240018.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240017.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240016.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240015.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240014.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y50/redwing7373/Car/P3240012.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Any idea on how much this may set me back? I could touch up the scrathches myself if they can just rebolt it/ aparently bond the right side back up into the body kit. Or should I really just get a new front for the body kit and, if so, how much would that be for just the front? Thanks guys.

Re: Damage Estimate? (dyeguy21)

A classic example of front sport kit damage. I'm sure someone will chime in with the $$$, but I don't remember. I gave up and got the evolve kit eventually.<br>

Re: Damage Estimate? (partridge)

100.00 for the piece and 60-70.00 to paint. You own a $40,000 plus car, fix it right and learn your leeson. Same thing happened to me last month. It stinks but I think when you pull up behind someone in your R those little fins on the bottom of the bumper look SO TOUGH. Fix em and move on. Rick

Might be more than a few hundred $$... I tore off one side, and the dealer tore off the other when in for service. Paint cracked/flaked off the front bumper. They had to pull bumper off, sand and repaint, new lower lips painted, etc..... in the end, he and I split a $1200 bill...<br>Now the risk I have is to the back end of the car - i leave its a** sticking out into traffic so as not to hit the front again!
