I'm curious, and seeking outside opinions on something.
My car is only two years old now. 23,000 some odd miles. OBP 2012 WRX Limited, brand new from factory when I got it. I try to take care of it as best I know how. I live in Colorado, and the roads here tend to not be in the driver's favor.
My front bumper has some damage already. Tons of road rash, some jerkface scraped into it slightly in a parking lot, there's a 4 inch crack on the bottom of the lip, which is only a few months younger than the car itself (underneath where the tow hook goes). We've tried getting quotes on what it would take to fix everything. (Estimates are usually $800.00+). To me, this car isn't the greatest, most powerful car on the planet. Sometimes it feels like it's made out of tinfoil and the melted down Lego pieces of some child's long forgotten past. However, I can't help but love it for its performance and style.
My question then becomes... Is it really worth it to spend that much on the bumper? It's not really noticeable unless you're up close and inspecting everything like someone with far too much time on their hands. Or if it's really sunny out...
Are there ways to "cover the scars"? I thought about using some of those JDM band-aid decals.
