Just bought my 2SS and some guy backed in to me

So i finally upgraded from a Red 2010 1LT to a Summit White 2010 2SS RS fully loaded!

Big thanks to Tim at Boardwalk Chevrolet in Redwood City CA. That guy is great!

Anyways, i was at the mall today and some guy backed in to me as he was backing out of his parking spot. I don't understand how he managed to hit me when there was a pretty big space between us. I think he wanted to reverse all the way to get to the main lane to leave. Small booboo which he will take care of. I think you can see it on the left side of the bumper.

Here is the picture i took tonight. My first upgrade will definitely be to add Flowmasters or Magna Flows... any suggestions?



Camaro for life baby!

I realize you're asking about mods, not about the accident but my advice would be don't settle out of pocket. The guy will stiff you, I hope you got his info including insurance. Go through insurance, no matter how minor.

Congratulations on the SS, I'm partial to white myself.

I took a picture of his drivers License and his insurance information. He seems like a good guy. He has followed up with me, he gave me info on the body shop he got a quote from and it is less than his deductible. All matters is for my baby to be fixed. It sucks man. First day and i get hit. My wife use to work for All State and she basically said we'll be fine. The mall has outside Cameras so i think we're good there if he tried to turn the story over.

Thanks for the input everybody! I will look in to flowmaster! I want the sound of my V8 to unleash!

Car looks awesome, digging the white!

Let me know if you need help with lighting, white is particularly awesome with LED's

Not my car, but the owner said it doesn't have any mods aside from the outlaw

That is definitely stock everything but the axle back. Honestly in my humble opinion the muffler delete sounds just as good if not better than the outlaws. If you plan on going with headers in the near future get a good axle back system. If not then I would go with the muffler delete and save a ton of money.

Sorry to hear about the boo boo. I bought my car three months ago and I'm still in the paranoid phase. Oh, I might be biased, but excellent choice on the Summit White. It looks amazing in your photo.

Man. If only people would stop backing up after their need to reverse is over. I see it all the time. The secret is: only back up as far as you need to.

My first choice was white for my 1SS. I like it.

Don't let him take care of it, is my advice.

49ersXXIX,

Congrats on your 2SS although I regret to hear about the parking incident. I hope all goes well with the fix. How's the driving experience been?
