    I knew it would happen sooner or later

    I was pulling out of the fuel stall and making a left hand 90 degree turn (very slow, still in the gas station lot) and a utility glass company truck (a Chevy 2500 p/u) backs out right into the front bumper. The damage looks purely cosmetic but it irks me nonetheless. I've only had this for 6 months. The guy said he didn't see me and that I came flying through there...how do I come flying through there when I was merely pulling out to the left?...and he didn't see me. Of course he didn't, because he wasn't paying attention. Now, all the glass panes and racks attached to the truck would have impaired his vision but that should have made him double and triple check his six (actually his 3 to 9) before he backed out. I do. Here are the pics:

    dont even stress about it. That's a minor minor problem. In the big scope of things, it's nothing. Good luck.

    Yeah, I know it's just a minor cosmetic problem but it just falls in line with the statment, 'I can't keep nice things because this is what happens.' I researched for over nine months on this car and got my credit back in line and saved money for down payments and searched for over a month for this car just to have this happen in less than six months of acquiring it.
    At least it's still drivable and there is no suspension, unibody or drivetrain damage. I just gotta figure out if I'll be able to get a new bumper because I really don't want to attempt to have that repaired, especially it being plastic/fiberglass or polyurethane.

    Awww c'mon guys..where's the classic response to something like this?

    I've had insurance spring for a new bumper over less damage. I know the feeling but like the previous posts said in the bigger scheme of things you're doing great. It'll be good as new soon. These things happen. Sucks but they do go on all the time. Having nice things does have drawbacks, it's frustrating when something goes wrong.

    Well as long as it's blemished, now is the time to take it out rallying in the dirt/mud!!1!!!1!

    Then get it fixed. Still sucks though, I'd be pissed. But just look at the bright side...this is not a show car, it's a rally car, your car will get fixed, now that you've had your first minor boo-boo you can relax a bit, it's not your fault, and scars just add character.
