Yes, that's right. I was rear-ended by a Buick full of migrant workers on the way home form work. It happened when a stupid cabby two cars ahead of me decided to make a sudden right into an apartment complex without signaling. The car behind him had to slam on his brakes, so I did the same to avoid running up his ass. Well, the driver of the Buick was either not paying attention, following too close, or both. Needless to say, he hit the back of my car at about 25 or 30 mph. I ended up with scuff marks on the rear bumper, and the brace which holds the center of the bumper cover on the bottom was pushed forward, causing the bottom of the cover to bow up. The bumper did not move at all, and my exhaust tip escaped without a scratch. Now as far as the POS Buick....................well his entire front grill assembly shattered, along with the left headlight frame. It looked like shit compared to mine.
There is one silver lining to this cloud. It appears as though he went right under my rear bumper. That being said, I guess not having it dropped saved my car from more serious damage. :lol
I would like to know if anyone has attempted to straighten the center bumper cover brace and how difficult it is to do.
