This should buff out right!?

Luckily my accident last night is only cosmetic, I think this should buff right out...

Soooooo I'm leaving work on my way to Buffalo Wild Wings around 11pm last night. Where I live in NJ we have a few circles where 2 highways meet. The highway coming onto RT 202 which I was on has a yeild coming around but this idiot decides to completely blow thru it when I'm basically right on top of him, pulling out in front of me with no where else to go except right into the back of him. Needless to say I am not happy.

Me too. I hope to use this time to get a different hood and some T2 ports but I'm not sure how the whole claim process works. I'm hoping to be able to just like pay the difference between whatever the stock hood/bumper is and what I want. Not to be a "racisit" or anything but the guy was a fresh off the boat Asian and I don't understand how a whole population of people can be so terrible at driving.

Yes but is it pre accident stock or pre accident aftermarket? I do have a few aftermarket things there that could have gotten f'd up like my K&N, I modded my lights to have HIDs. Still waiting for insurance adjuster to call back with everything. I'm just p'o this even happen. Idk how some people get their licenses..

MSRP for a stock LS hood I see on GMPartsHouse is close to $900. I'm sure I can find a good aftermarket one for about the same or less.

Ouch! At least you're OK and the damage is cosmetic. Good luck with the fix.

Try some clay bar on it first, if that doesn't work, step up to Adam's SSHR.

Sorry to see the damage on your car, I hope it all gets fixed really soon!

Sorry about your accident. You weren't being "racist" what you did was Stereotype a whole ethnicity. I for one find it Insulting (I am white). My wife is of "Asian" ethnicity and had been driving for 30+ years and never been the cause of an accident.
