    Wow, I feel bad. I'm sorry that happened to you and that you have had bad luck with your FX. I'm sure after you fix it you will have better luck.

    I had a lot of bad luck with my first new car I bought years ago. So I know how you feel right now.

    $400.00 does not sound bad at all. So is the Mario Andretti wanna be going to pay for damages? I sure hope so.

    Hope you have a better day.

    OUCH! That loooks like it was a really hard hit. sorry
    But for $400- I would be curious what kind of job you're gonna get done. Bumper cover alone is $300-, & that's not for an OEM new part. Looks like there's more damage than the cover alone. There is stuff behind it too, like supports, & possible frame work to get done.
    Did you check the fenders too. The bumper being flush with the side fenders can cause the fender to buckle under pressure. Check to see if the clearcoat has hairline cracks on the lip of the fender by the plastic moulding.

    whoever fixes that for $400 is going to fix the cover, that's crap, don't even think about doing that, like doc said paint & install is around $300-$350, $400 on the high side, plus a new cover.. that splash shield don't look too hot either, but that could be delt with later too I guess... I'd run from any shop that even suggests you fix that for $400, maybe if it was a 15 year old chevy:err:

    Oh man I cringed when I saw that and felt like it was my own for a second.

    I hope you were able to track 'Mario' down and get her to help out.

    Like I always say though, it's better to have all the bad luck over at once. Makes room for all the good luck to come through. ;)

    ye very true, the bumper cover from that site says add also $150 freight soo add that on $255 , on top of paint and labour mayb another $250, this guy is a close friend of mine and has been working on all of our cars, hes very good, he has to take off the bumper and then he said hes going to look for any more damage if there is obviously the price will go up, the sheild at the bottom is cracked and thats $140 to get fixed, and no the bitch is not paying for this, the reason why im going to get it fixed is because he said he can fix it and im low on cash and i dont wana be driving it like that, but he said no 1 wouldnt even noticed it was hit so i will post pics on friday when its done, the bitch drove off while i got out to check my car, and after the high speed chase to get her she was gone, i went to the house, where the guy said '' no theres no car of that type'' and thats where i flipped out

    If $400 will make you happy with the results (hopefully), that's all that matters.

    Sometimes I find my self saying 'F-it, I just want it fixed!'

    Take the police to that house. Then I'm sure they will know where she is at. That is hit and run.

    if the guys a friend it can be fixed for $400, I would rather have a new bumper, but, in the end, the bumper cover is disposable to a certain extent & no matter how or what, could always be replaced at a later date if $$$ is the issue... I guess I could fix that to be decent, but to me it's almost like a wasted $400, I mean it gets you by, but the bumper cover repair is kind of a wasted effort to me to a certain extent, I mean the paint & labor would be much better spent on a new one that could be considered a more permanent & perfect repair, in the end you'r not hurting anything by fixing it though really...
