EDIT: SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR UPDATED PICS:::

Hey guys,

I got in a wreck in my parking garage today. Girl in white honda civic was driving uphill in the middle of the road as I came around the corner. Was coasting downhill and had foot on the floor, tried to hit brake but hit clutch instead.

Slid into a parked Mazda 3 at about 5mph. Here is a pic of the damage, and my question is do you guys think that my bumper is toast? And does anyone still sell rep m-tech fronts that are pre-painted?


Thanks, Schm



Edit: Check out the bottom of the page for the LCI update I did on my baby

a body shop can probably pop that dent out of the bumber and then just repaint it the headlight would be my concern, your fender just needs alil tlc and some paint

Thanks guys, I thought the bumper is reparable just wanted to get some consensus. I think I am going to buy some xenons from another forum member.

Truly the amount of money you pay for repair is close to the amount of replacement parts. If the body man charges 75$ an hour and it takes 4 hours to repair ( not paint) that bumper , you will spend $300. can you buy one online for $300 painted used or new ? And can you live with the repair looking hazy and or shrinking /chipping later?

+1.. bumper is toast. No way is any collision repair company going to make that look normal. I would contact Sonic Tuning and inquire about their LCI upgrade package.

LCI conversion is a must. Hood-lines are amazing.

At first after talking to the body shop I was just going to get it fixed, but honestly after seeing a couple more LCIs around town today, even though I see them all the time, the lines on the hood and that pic above really is reeling me in. God damn it I just can't stop spending money

After a very long process and some epic failure by the shipping company I have finally fixed my car. Thanks to Patrick at Sonic Tuning for the LCI kit.

Usually I take pics on the top of mountains but thought I would switch it up.








Actually, just kidding. Here are some mountain pics
