A cat or fox darted in front of my car...

Never saw the animal until i looked in my review mirror. I was running about 35-40mph and that little sh*t cause $1900 worth of damage. At least i get to fix my front end up. Calling Cervini for their GT500 grills and lower valance. Deleting the grill fogs and getting the smaller fogs on the lower part of the bumper and getting the flip down license plate holder too.

I have an all Mustang and MoFoCo car show to go to. So I had to do a quick bandage repair. The good thing, the crack is low on the car and you can not see it from a standing position.

Hate when that happens! Caught a piece of tire on the highway, the nice Challenger driver pulled over just in time for me to hit it and have nowhere to go! Luckily I have a flip down license plate holder that took the majority of impact! Trashed the holder and plate but a little buffing and replaced the holder and plate and looked like nothing happened. So keep that in mind once you get the flip plate

Wrecking a $50 flip down is better than a $200 valance. 😊

Yes! So practice hitting stuff with it, you never know when a cat or fox will run out in front of you! Your steering reflexes must be ready at all times young grasshopper.

That isn't to make light of your situation D1STRRBD, it sucks and I feel for you. Glad it's low enough not to be seen standing.

When I had my e46 M3 I was following a 4wd truck at about 65, when he rolls right over an 18 wheeler tire with out braking I had nowhere to go hit it dead smack in the middle, plastic stuff spewed out the back of the car, engine didn't miss a beat, so I go wow maybe I got away with it checked my gauges all was well , but let me pull over and check underneath just in case so I stop at a truck plaza killed the engine and walked to the front of my car .. It was totally f***** up , coolant leaking oil cooler bent, front bumper destroyed, well all bent and cracked, had to be towed of course, $5,000 buckaroos cha Ching..

Fixing cars is real expensive.

^ this is true. It's unfortunate, but true. I'd have a lot more cars if they weren't so expensive to maintain. Which I'm sure most us would have more cars.
You don't want to know the repair bill on this car when it got hit.

That sucks man! I actually just purchased the whole gt500 kit from cervinis as well. Not a bad price for all three parts.
