    I was driving home and lost control and hit a snowbank and cracked my front bumper.

    Pics will come tomorrow.

    Sorry!
    I'm glad you're apparently OK,
    And... you can replace the bumper.
    People are a little tougher to fix.

    Good Luck with the repair!

    I remember a co worker just took the car to one of those bumper doctor places and they popped it in place and suction cupped the dent out for $200

    She did not want to report it to insurance

    UPDATE! I just dropped Lucky- the c off to a body shop. I know someone who owns a body shop and does great work. ALL in about $800 bucks. I need a new bumper cover bottom rubber piece a few other plastic pieces and a frame shop to straighten out some metal.

    She's getting better!!! Turns out I cracked a headlight mount. Fixed no problem. They were able to fix and mend a lot of the plastic pieces underneath!

    Glad your ok, could of been worse. I like the look of the black bumper too! Yours could be a one of a kind leaving it black. By the way $800 is very cheap to have all that done.
