shaneomac1602 Posted May 19, 2010 Share Posted May 19, 2010 Im so pissed. Lets just start there. How can someone be so indecent as to hit someone's car, they just take off. They dont wait around, they dont leave a note saying at least "Sorry for hitting your car." I drive everywhere with my yellow HID foglights on, day or night. I have met a few LGT guys that know the fog lights don't typically work like that during the day, so its cool when you meet some who knows something about an LGT. That habit i have is what caused me to notice my damage. So here's how it happened: I came home from work monday, everything was fine. I woke up today around 10:30am, ran to the gas station at 12:30pm to get gas, a Dr. Pepper (Mmmm Dr. Pepper), and a gallon of milk. Got home around 12:45pm, made some food, and left for work at 1:30pm. I worked 2:00pm-10:00pm. At about 10:15pm i noticed, in the reflection of a truck ahead of me, that my driver side foglight was not on. the passenger one was. i figured my bulb was bad or a loose connection somewhere. I was going to deal with it tomorrow. I stopped at the store to pick up some stuff, and when i was walking throught the parking lot up to my car, i noticed a large scrape on my driver front corner! I started freaking out. So you understand, I love my LGT, as I know alot of you do as well. So when I noticed someone hit my car I was pissed. I began inspecting my car I noticed a scrape on the corner, its about 1" tall, about 5" long. There are hairline cracks in the paint on the bumper, and alot of scrapes. My front bumper now hangs down about 3/8" from the driver fender, and the front bumper is shifted to the passenger side. The plastics inside and under the bumper are all jacked up. There is some kind of something (most likely a bolt) behind the bumper that is trying to pop through the bumper now. My driver headlight is loose, i think the bracket under the bumper might be broken. And the plastic clips that keep the front grill in are all now broken. And that was until i got it into some light. Add to that, my driver fender shifted up, and is now pushing on my A pillar, and is about 3/8" away from the hood. the passenger fender seems fine, and is about 1/8" away from the hood. Then i noticed my fmic is shifted about 1" to the passenger side. doesnt seem to have any leaks, i hope its ok. my driver headlight hangs about 1/4" out over the bumper, my passenger headlight is now about 1/2" recessed into the bumper. So pretty much, my front end is jacked up. you wouldnt notice it if you werent looking for it, but its really pissing me off. So tomorrow i have a meeting with the manager of the Mobile gas station i filled up at to view their security videos to see if someone hit me while i was inside paying. And then I have to go and take my car to my insurance company's office to go over everything with them. IM SO HAPPY I HAVE FULL COVERAGE! first car i have had more than liability only. i cant remember off hand what my deductible is, but im sure im going to get screwed somehow out of all this. this has been the worst week ever. ugh, im so ready for all this bad luck to turn around. this has been 6 days straight of bad shit happening to me. sry about all this, but i just had to vent all this. ugh. and now i feel a little bit better. ill take some pics in the morning...
