    So this happened today :unhappy:

    On my way home from work right now there was a large truck that ran over a dog and when the truck ran it over it shot the dog in my direction. This was on a very busy 3 line (each way) street with cars next to me and right behind me so I could not avoid it. It hit my front bumper and this happened.



    I was super excited to throw on my TBE on Saturday and flash stage 2, but now needless to say I am pretty upset about it. Just wanted to vent because my wife is at school and I cant complain to her.

    Sorry about your car. Did anyone stop to help the dog?

    I pulled over as fast as I could, but by the time I got to the dog it was gone.

    Shame. Glad you stopped to check though.

    If you've got good insurance, you could make a claim and it might not affect your premium. My wife just had someone scrape the door on her Outback while it was left parked. She went through the insurance company with no deductible or increase in premium.

    It's worth a shot at least. That sucks though, cars and dogs are some of my favorite things.

    Go to subaru parts Depot 24.00 and also need the three clips that hold it on the bumper, called a side bumper vent on that site it is part 9 vent and 10 for the clip. had the same thing fall off when I hit a dog also, thanks to my dba brake rotors nothing happen to dog. Did more damage to my car. No worries for me I love dogs.

    Did you buy it painted or did you go have it painted somewhere?

    No you will have to get it painted. and you will not need the clips they are still on your car. Saw them in your photo.
