Love the compassion of some here. Damage isn't going to change, yet no concern for the dog, just make sure your bling is preserved. Yikes.. Pain is pain- hope someone hits you and leaves the scene.

Looks good dude, I'm planning on doing the same to mine (replacing bumpers, not hitting dogs lol).

Tell me, did you go with OEM or aftermarket bumpers?

I ran over a turtle 2 days ago, took the top of his shell off. No damage to the car thank God.

Some of today's younger crown live in a capsule. Nothing exists beyond their space of any importance. Just get yours...
