End of the day, you're not hurt.

Well this sucked this morning. Unavoidable tire debris passed underneath a GMC truck that easily avoided it unlike myself and we're only going 65mph. Another car beside and closely behind me. Said fuck it, I hit it, and wondered how come I didn't hear it go under my car. I should've stopped to see if there was belt/radiator any damage but I had no immediate place to pull over safely. Looked at the front, lo and behold.

The bumper is clear bra'd so all the black scuffs are on the plastic, except there are hairline cracks on the impact points on the paint but nothing to cry about. Lower grill is done for, easily replaceable, no broken tabs. I've always wanted to remove the lower grill anyway.

Had my kid watch me in case I died looking under my car. So no performance wise damage, just aesthetics. Nothing to cry about for claims. Still went to get new rear tires, added spacers to all sides.

At the end of day, if it's broken, fix it, be careful where you drive, be mindful of others, go home, and rape someone...just kidding.
*bumper still for sale hahah

I would've told you....LCI mtech if it were something performance wise, it'd be a different story. She still pulls like my 185HP beast.

Glad to see there was no major damage. Been toying with the idea of Apex wheels myself - what are your wheel/tire specs? Those ARC 8's look good

Your car is basically protesting that it doesn't wear enough rubbers because of stretched tires .. so naturally it eats more rubber eh?
