Recommended Posts

So today i was at dennys with my friend when i was pulling out of the parking lot and wala i get rearended. its bad but not to bad. took it to the body shop straight after and they are giving me a quote on how much it will cost to get it fixed. i didnt get names or insurance things because i thought my car was fine because it was covered with snow but when i got home it was so fine...

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.

Douchebags, I hate em.

That should cost you 450 if you have to pay out of pocket, anything more and it's a rip off.

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.

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:
