Default Stupid Snow

Saturday night/Sunday morning I was coming home from work in the middle of this big little snow storm. I'm sitting at a red light Nd i started feeling heavy winds hit the car, as soon as the light turned green and I let off the brake the wind blew the car into a light pole. Now, I'm tapping the brakes and gas simultaneously seeing if I could steer out of it, but by the rime the tires caught tread, the lightpole was kissing my maxima in the mouth. I got out to assess the damage and my whole bumper was on the ground, I was too pissed to take any pictures so I threw the bumper in the backseat and drove home like that. I'm supposed to call the shop and meet up with the insurance appraiser tomorrow to get this situation taken care of, right now I have the bumper tied to the front of the car and that shit is ass ugly. I'll take some pics tomorrow when the sun comes up so yall can see my poor baby.

Oh not at all, but it kinda held up better than the bumper. I'm gonna get the shop to order me another cmod, I might even attempt 07-08 a swap but my headlights and hood are fine.

How can wind blow your car into a light pole when you let off the brake?

Hmmm, yeah kinda banged up. Double check your headlight, make sure there is zero damage, if there is any damage, claim it too. Our head lights are expensive!

I think I see part of the reason why, your tires are bad for the snow

Check the cost of a new bumper cover should more than pay for the 07 conversion kit. EZ Koncept bumper.

Sweet. I'm waiting on an estimate now, I told them I didn't wanna drive the car in that condition because it doesn't sound right. So an estimator is supposed ro come check the car out before they hand over any cash.

In the meanwhile, I would go get estimates of your own so the don't short change you. Ask them for estimates just to fix it back to the way it was, then if they seem cool, talk to them about what you are thinking of doing. Some shops are cool, some are not with that kind of stuff.

Check you car good, don't miss anything. I got credit for a brand new headlight for this tiny crack I found. $750ish for a headlight.

I don't think it was just the wind but a combo of that plus snowy street. But on a positive note the car is in the shop now, in waiting on an estimate so I can decide whether to keep it there or go to a local shop and do the 07-08 conversion. I got a cool soccor momish van from the rental place, its a 2012 Chrysler town and country.

if i were you, i would just buy the db bumper. of course, if you had the cash, you could do the full 07/08 conversion if you're willing to replace headlights and hood as well. best of luck!

Those were my plans but the car started sounding different so I wanted to make sure nothin else was damaged. But after the damage is assessed then ill most likely take my car from the dealers collision center and take it to local shop if all I need is the bumper cover and its hardware.
