comprehensive covers hitting an animal if you have that coverage on your auto policy. I carry a $0 deductible so glass breakage and such is covered at no expense to me.

that really sux!! Where do you live and isn't it a state requirement to have insurance? I know here they will give you a $1000 fine for no insurance. Your car is still worth some money.

The air dam? I don't remember it being oval, but it'* the only piece I can think of that hangs down.

BTW, not insuring the car you drive is a very very bad idea. Even if you think you'll never hit anyone, like I did, you probably will, like I did. But I was lucky enough to have insurance, which is saving me $50,000 US.
