My luck...i hate it!

So today my friend wanted to go for a little ride through my city just to show off a little bit, you know, the usual. I go down this one street and as we're sitting at a light, i feel a hard bump and feel as if im dreaming. I get out the car and see a cars front bumper on mine. It was just a honda civic and the damage wasn't serious but still enough to get me upset, havent even had this car for a month yet -__- The only upside is that now i could purchase that quad diffuser i wanted? Anyone have an idea of how much this damage will cost to repair?

You need a new rear diffuser and to have your entire rear bumper repainted to make it look like before. I wouldn't consider the damage "not serious". It might cost around $500.00 to get it repaired right.

Seems like this is happening at least once ever day -_-. If you want the quad tips, now is the time to do it

I'm guessing $500 for the bumper repaint + the cost of the diffuser. Can't remember the thread but there was one recently that had info that the quad diffuser had gone down in price, so you may be able to get without anything out of pocket.

I had similar damage to my 2010 Camaro just a few months after I bought it (bumper repainted and new diffuser)...cost was $630 (the other insurance company paid for it). Sucked, but it looked good as new when it was done.
