Hit a damn raccoon..

I was driving to go eat with my Gf, today is my birthday and on the highway doing about 65-68 a damn raccoon shoots across the highway and I swerved and clipped it and destroyed my whole front bumper on the right side, fog light is all gone, there's a huge chunk missin. I'm so heated. I need advice on where to get a new m3 front bumper. I don't want to deal with my insurance. Will update with pics.

I'm sorry, but why do you not want to deal with your insurance company? You hit an animal, the repair goes under comprehensive coverage, not collision. The insurance company will not raise your rates.

You know that, right?

I know that none of us wants our cars damaged, but it could have been a larger animal and a lot more damage so you did have some birthday luck. I'm glad you guys are safe, the car can be repaired! Hopefully the birthday was still a good one all in all!

cracked a small deer the same way, took out bumper, fog lamp, all the cooling systems, tire, wheel, fender liner, oil cooler. It fell down as it jumed in the road. Did not damage to the hood or headlamps.

I crashed my last car into a curb they ended up totaling it rates went up a lot, and I would rather not deal with them and wait to long when I can just ordered a new bumper painted and installed for under 1,000. And plus wouldn't it show that I was involved in an accident on my vehicle report?
