Default Son of a... someone hit my car.

Nothing better then walking out of work after 12 hours and finding someone hit your car.

It'* not bad, but that'* not the point. Don't hit a car and not bother saying anything. Ripped the front plate off.

NOOOO!!!! I can honestly say I feel your pain, brother. I came out from a 19 hour day and found someone had hit the pearl from the back bumper up to the rear wheel well on the driver side, broke the tail light too. They even hit the front of the car behind me, I was backed in to a spot, and they didn't leave a note or anything. $2200.00 in damage. I had just switched insurance companies and lowered my deductible the day before. I'm so sorry to hear yours was a victim. Atleast its repairable. Are you doing it yourself?

I'll have to go in for a estimate next week when I have off work. Ya, I'm doing it my self. Rockauto has the front bumper for $179, Ebay has them for about $150. Once I have time and light I might be able to fix it up and not replace it, will no more when I'm off work Thursday. What'* going to suck is if the damage is under or close to the deductible, I think we have $250.

That'* what I had switched mine too. Do you have paint left from your hood? It would be nice if you could just fix the bumper. If it'* ripped, I don't know how well it would turn out. IMO, it would be best to replace and repaint

I'm hopping I can just glass it from behind, clean up the front and give it a little kitty fur on the outside, clean it up, and paint.

Dam! Sorry to hear that Dan. I've been hit before and not had any notes left or anyone bother to say sorry. The lack of respect to another person definitely makes me madder than the ding to the ride.

If you need any kitty fur, let me know. My neighbors raising/collection/hoarding cats and I can grab a few and shave em for ya!

Some how I think we're talking about a different kind of kitty fur.

I've been thinking that I might be able to open up that fog light area and glass it nice to give better air flow to the intercooler. I'll know more when I give it a close look.
