:F-you:

I am very angry today after some dickhead (truck) swiped the front of my car and drove off. I have a front bumper cracked in 3 places now and no one to claim the insurance against! There goes my Rating 1!!!!!! Not happy. :banghead:

That's terrible man! I'm really sorry for your loss :headshake:

I know it's not going to be cheap to replace, but you'd still probably be better off not claiming it. :banghead:

That sucks!

I wouldn't be worried about the insurance. If it is only your front bumper that needs replacing and painting then you should get out of it for much less than a grand. The front bumper is only $400-$450 to buy.

Bad luck anyway.

Sorry to hear that man..... there are a lot of these kind people around already... you gotta park your car carefully... even a lot of people would damage cars intentionally...

I will buy a bumper myself though.... will not go through the insurance to lose my rating 1 and get to pay more next year again...

best of luck...

cheers,

oh man i know how u feel

TPIACE remembers his first ding thread

get some quotes from a repair shop, then weigh it up against ur excess. My bonnet alone cost $900 to repair and respray, i doubt a bumper can only cost $450, but u never know

could be a good opportunity to shave the badge if ur not a hamburger man

Yeh! Some people just have no consience.

If you're going to fix this from your own pocket it'll be worth getting a new body kit. You'll feel all the better for it imho!

iggy:

Full after market bumper will be a lot more expensive than the stock piece (is always around 1K mark or more), plus the additional shipping cost due to its dimensional weight (around 96kg on my nismo front bumper), you are expecting to pay around 700+ just for the air freight... That's why many people go for the lip kit instead of full bumper replacement.

If you decide to go for the OEM front bumper, a Vertex half kit will look fully sick on your car though.... will definitely stand out with the colour that you have got there and no fitment problem!
