So usually you hear parents telling their teenage sons that there's no way they'll ever get the keys to the parents' car. Well in my situation, I'm taking my keys from my parents! I needed to borrow an SUV to go to a lake with my friends for the day, so I took my mom's XC90. My mom borrowed my S40, with the usual, be careful from me, especially after I just took home another award with it yesterday. Well 10 minutes after I arrive at my destination, I get a call from my dad saying my mom's damaged my car. When I come home to see the damage, the Heico Front Lip is ABSOLUTELY smashed, split in about 4 places, hanging off the car. She said she did it pulling into a parking space normally, and hit the park stopper or cement block, whatever you want to call it. Well anyway, from the damage, it looks like she pulled in at about 20! I'll have to give Eurosport a call tomorrow and talk to my shop and see what they can do. <p>Not so much mad at my mom, just frusterated, especially right after winning an award! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Thanks for letting me vent. I'll try and snap a picture too. <p><br>EDIT: Here's a picture<p><A HREF="http://img313.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1001103nf0.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img313.imageshack.us/img313/4674/1001103nf0.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><BR><BR>

Ouch that hurts but at least it's not a completely custom piece so a new one can be obtained.

Re: Venting! (makonyy15)

So I guess the Heico lip is made of fiberglass. Don't you still have the factory lip? That's one thing I like about the factory ground effects, it is made of poly-urethane. I bumped it a few times and it just bends and pop back. I need to remember to tell anybody that drives my car that the front does not clear the parking blocks.

Yup Heico is all fiberglass. My mom usually is fine with the car, she knows it's lowered but I guess she just didn't think about it. I've still got the stock front lip, but the customs shop and I called up Frank at EuroSport, and he was extremely helpful and is shipping out a new lip today with 3 day air because I've got another show this weekend. <p>PornSStar- sounds good, thanks man!
