That really sucks...but at least its not too bad. Looks like it might just be the cover. You can probably find primered ones for a good price.

Time for a bodykit....lol.

450 ... might as well go for a nice bodykit. Why go back to the usual... :welcome:

Ack, no.

95% of the kits out there for the GA are ricey as all hell, fit and finish is terrible, and most insurance companies won't bother.

When getting parts Emily, settle for nothing less than OEM parts, aftermarket bumpers fit terrible on our GA's.

sc/t kit is basically stock!

This.

I plan on going SC/T if I ever get a good deal on a black 4 door kit.

Emily, do some searches on the SC/T kit, it's a lip kit that uses the existing GT body panels.

Don't sweat it these things happen (why their called accidents :welcome: ) and although it was a hard lesson to learn, you did learn to take their name, insurance and what not down now. Least its only the bumper and should be only cosmetic damage. Hope you can find a good price for the new bumper!

The reason I suggested to get a bodykit is because thats what some people wait for. Its the perfect opportunity. Thats what 1BADG6GT did, and now he has one sweet lookin g6.

But as suggested get something more subtle like that lip kit... :welcome:
