Curbed my bumper

I don't know weather to be angry or just cry because I just hurt my baby for the first time :( I was pulling into a little parking lot which had a small entrance (kind of like a driveway entrance), I wasn't paying full attention and made my right turn in too soon. the result was grinding my bumper on the curb.

Maybe a front splitter would cover it up!

Ouch. I feel your pain. I did the same thing on a parking lot pig. Could not see mine as easy as yours, though. I am having the bumper repainted, while the car is getting repaired from a hit & run accident. My dealer quoted $800 to repaint the bumper. A painful thing, both to wallet and eyes. Good luck.

Someone ran into my front bumper and it was worse than yours. Cost of repairs was around $650. Take it to a good repair shop and have it done right, dnt just touch it up. Depends on how much your deductible is weather or not u should turn in a claim. Mines was only $100 bucks but if yours is $500 I'd just pay for it and not turn it into your Insurance co. Good luck, it will look good as new trust me

thanks for the advise guys, the biggest thing that is eating away at me is that the car is brand new, I barley touched upon 1200 miles on it today :(

Dude, I KNOW how you feel. I don't want to get into details. I didn't hit a curb or anything but yes...any scratch on our baby and it HURTS.

Can't be as bad as what I did. I was installing the Show N Go license plate bracket on the front of my car and mis-saw my markings for the holes to drill. Ended up drilling an extra hole in the front facia. LUCKILY for me it's under the car and not in the front
