was stuck in traffic (i live in a college town and school has just started) to go do some photography, when all of a sudden i see something coming in my rear view mirror and then there is just a LOUD bang and a jolt. after realizing what had happened, then pissed, i composed myself pulled over to inspect the damage. the other kid also pulled over, asked if iwas ok, etc.. from the sound i though the bumper was going to be mangled, but it's just a few scratches and it seems pushed in a bit. you can see some distortion along the inner edge of the license plate area. anyway, pic:



not too bad, but being that i got the car maybe five weeks ago i am upset. i got the kid's information and all so i am good there. this also follows upon the keying incident from three weeks ago (a mere two weeks after i picked her up) pic of that:



i'm beginning to think the car is bad luck!

with all these scratches i'm thinking i'm going to try to touch it up myself (i'd rather spend money on mods than a pro paint job). i think i'm going to do my sideskirts first to see how my skills at doing this are. if i can get those looking nice, then i'll tackle these other ones. (and then have this kid pay for paint and supplies, better than going through insurance for sure)

bleh, situations like this make me upset.

yeah i know it could be a lot worse, but on a new car every little thing that happens to it is terrible you know?

it's not too bad. i'm going to try my hand at painting the sideskirts, and if that goes well, i'll try these other blemishes as well.

Just make sure the foam crap inside the bumper is still ok, if it is not and fails the next time (hopefully there is no next time) you get hit, it will be much worse.
