Hit and run -pics

Long story short on Saturday after walking out of panera for lunch I jump I'm my car and some lady is yelling and waving her arms around like a lunatic. So I roll down the window not knowing what to expect. Then she says. U have no idea someone hit you do you? I was thinking to myself. F my life. So I get outta the car walk around to my passengers side and sure enough fender bashed. Front bumper cracked and rims all scuffed up. But that lady happened to be sitting in her car and saw the entire thing happen. So I called the coppers and they came out and we found the person who hit me deny it all. But he had green paint all over his bumper. So I'm in the process of going thru his insurance.

Best part of all of this is. Because of my t2 ports and vinyl lip that added $900 onto my front bumper repair. Aka I'm getting stingray Chevy to order me a zl1 bumper. But...... Im going to do the zl1 bumper my way. No lights in the ports. I'm going to cut out the ports and put black mesh in its place. Kinda like my t2 ports for air right on my longtube CAI . I cannot wait to get the bumper in. Stay tuned

Sucks to hear man but good to know you're getting a good deal on the other end with a new bumper. I've had quite a few run ins with people messing up my car as well. It's always good to get it back to new...or even better!

How about the rims you said were scratched? Easy fix?

Damn dude. Sorry, at least you got the guy. I got hit about a month back and they still haven't found the person who hit me. Luckily my insurance covered it all with no issues or changes in coverage. Good to hear you are going to get fixed with extra style. Can't wait to see it.

sorry to hear it, but at least the ahole was a stupid ahole, imagine deciding to not tell anyone but hanging around the area....more like a hit and sit.......there was good luck mixed with the bad......maybe you could get some showstopper side markers to

Maybe you could send him my way, should would like a new front end
