    i was at a carshow all day having a great day. then on my way home i was just taking it slow, crusin since it was very nice out. i came up on a round-about intersection with a silver honda infront of me. there was a yeild sign and a car coming along ways away. she could have made it, i was looking at the car coming as i slowed down to the intersection. i thought she had went and i when i looked back she had not moved and i mashed the brakes and swerved but as we know the excursion takes alittle bit to get stopped. i thought i was going to clear her but CRUNCH i heard it but i never felt anything. we waited for the cops for 2 hours when we she finally said screw it and we'll just exchange info. which saved me a ticket and points.

    her car

    at least there is no body damage and you could just replace the bumper

    yeah, i'm going to go with the updated '05 front bumper and grill(even though the grill is fine) so as they say when life gives you lemons, make lemonaid!

    Doesnt look bad at all, and it could have been worse. But you are right, an 05+ front end on that thing is going to look awesome!!!
