Killed my front bumper tonight
#1276753 - 07/12/06 07:16 AM

Driving home from work I hit a raccoon that had to be the size of a freakin' mountain lion. Cracked the bumper cover, put a hole in it, and pushed it back in the middle about 6 inches.
Just thought I'd vent.

well how did the 'coon make out?

sucks to hear about your bumper. i remember driving back in maine how scary it is, especially at night, to hit any object while driving.

'Coon is dead. My friend was about 4 miles behind me and said it was pretty ugly.

How does the Andy's Autosport front clip look with stock rear and sides? Anyone know?

Just got an estimate. He said it's over $2K, but couldn't give me a final number until after he takes the car apart. Radiator is almost folded in half on the bottom...it sucks!
