Yup, they went though only one car wash in about a month and a half. It's snowing tomorrow. Once it clears up again I'll detail her on a "warmer" day. Thanks for the comments!

BTW, my bumper is not scratched at the bottom. The front end was wet before and I didn't wipe off the bottom.

Once you get that bumped fixed, get some clear corners and new tail lights

Sad thing is the day before the bumper got messed with, I dropped about 600 bucks on new cooling parts, filters, window regulator, and beisan vanos seals. I'm fairly confident a few good zip ties will take care of the bumper issues, but it's annoying none-the-less.

I've never been a big fan of red, until now. So slick that car is.

Oh it's going to get some upgrades. The car isn't totaled or anything. It just looks like someone kicked the bumper downward. There's no damage to the bumper itself, just the clips on the support bracket broke off. So zip ties ftw for now.

I'm already looking into angel eyes, clear corners, new rear headlights, possibly getting a new bumper when/if I get a new support bracket or find a way to fix the clips, possible new exhaust, etc, etc.

Funny thing is, my 50 year old father thinks I should lower it and put a good ground effects kit on it. He said, and this is a direct quote, lowered BMWs with a nice ground effects kit look amazing.

If I took out a 10,000 loan my car wouldn't look very much different, but you sure would regret picking a fight with it.
