This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

I was driving into my bank parking lot, didn't see this huge *** pot hole b/c it was dark and the pot hole is in a hidden spot. My whole car bottomed out and completely screwed over my chin spoiler. I'm pissed, I give up. Screw it all. Gonna get under the car in the morning and see what else is scewed up. I swear i'm gonna buy a damn truck.

no crap... go tell them in the morning their DITCH broke part of your car... being as it's their driveway... and they are a business in which you must drive into... they are liable (I believe )

Hey, now we can be even more twins, cuz my chin spoiler is ****ed up too, haha.

I'd seriously call the bank and ask to talk to a manager.

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

yeah if the pothole is big enough to where a mustang with just a 1" drop bottoms out, it needs to be fixed. i would call and make them pay for the new spoiler and possible repairs. if they dont, lawsuit time.

i am really getting sick of the disarray our roadways are in. especially cali, we spend the most on our roads and theyre the ****tiest in the u.s.

that's exactly why i haven't put anything sort of ground effects on my stang. Being so low already and spending so much to make it look pretty.

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

I tell you what I would put it back on the car just like it was after you hit the pot hole and drive right up to the bank and raise hell. They will fix the hole for cheap and quickly to prevent more payouts. banks hate being seperated from their money

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

you should have someone take some pics of you driving over that pothole and ruining your car, maybe have them do a sequence of pics showing your car going into the pothole, your car door coming open from the force and you rolling outside your car and causing great damage (traumatizing dmg of course) and lets see you own that damn bank. my step-mom walked into a pothole at night-time and she broke her foot, at a casino and they payed her a shizload of money. You might try saying you had 18 inch rims and a supercharger before that damn pothole too.

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

I talked to the bank, it's not their property. I talked to the city, not their property. I talked to the state, they're not sure if it's their property...sound like the runaround to you? lol. I'll post a few pics of the hole. It also messed up my front bumper...dunno if it can be fixed.

pshhh you think you're low try sitting w/ a chin spoiler AND H&R SS springs. 1.7" drop, plus the added 1.25" from the spoiler.

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

Well..I went to a body shop and got a quote, 540 bucks. And i talked to someone at the highway dept who gave me the number for a guy who'll tell me who to call, who'll direct me in the right direction, which will lead me to some guy who will know who to call, who will put me on hold, who will try and say it's my fault. This is gonna be fun

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

I'm almost thinking about selling my foglight system, selling my bumper the way it is, it's really not that bad. Then buy a Roush stage 3 front and finish up my hood the way I was planning before.

I have always said that if it's broke, it's just an excuse to replace it with something better.

Of course money does always come into play...

Re: This makes me want to stop doing stuff to my car

holy **** thats no pothole, its a ****ing crater.

and they wonder why the pothole is all ****ed up like that, prolly from countless cars running aground on it.

they seriously need to fill that sucker, thats just unacceptable. i would only expect a pothole of that magnitude in california.
