Object on the freeway damaged my bumper...

So on the drive to work today I see this object flying off of someone's boat that they were towing and my car ended up catching it lol..

THREE DAYS prior I installed my new custom made lip and OSS headlights... Thankfully there is no damage to the headlights but my lip was chosen a different path...

Update: Waiting on the guys insurance to rewrite me a new estimate..

Yep, that's definitely a UFO. In fact it's so unidentifiable that I can't even see it

LOL calm down I'm not a noob.. I'm on my iPhone (much easier to do on a desktop) trying to do this one step at a time until insurance company called me in the middle of trying to fix the broken links.

But pics up!

How are you going to fix that without buying a entirely new front bumper and lip? That's going to be well over a grand all said and done...

I think you should go LCI without a doubt. Msport or m3 rep. You can cut off where your top moustache grills bolt on until you have enough dough for a hood. You can get an aftermarket hood for around $350 if you are crafty. Then it's just paint.

Dude 1M bumper is pricey although I would LOVE too. Man how much do they go for these days? Like $1000-1,200?

I know what you mean. You can get the LCI msport and not do the hood until you feel like it. Just cut the top of the LCI grilles so it fits your stock hood or cut the hood where the moustache bolts on.
