So I dunno what to call this really.... it's sort of a rant/question/share thread I guess. So I recently drove to SF for the week to spend time with friends and while driving downtown, I decided to take a turn too sharply and my sideskirt hit the curb.

This is how it is now:


This is the first time I did it:


This would be the second time this has happened and I was pretty frustrated by it. I was literally :banghead: next to my car as my friends got out. I ended up just saying 'screw it' and bought the a-spec side skirts, but I was wondering if others had this "problem."

Yup. Turned right on a corner trying to go down a ramp at a mall and scrapped my side skirt. The whole skirt fell off except the end that was screwed onto the rear fender. I had to drive backwards and bolt it back on. Luckily my car is black so it's not too noticeable.

Haven't had that problem per say, but I'm fairly sure I have a cursed front bumper. I had it repaired after hitting a opossum doing about 80mph and that lasted all of about 5 months. about a week ago i hit a cat going about 50 and it has now screwed up that fresh paint job. I want to buy a brand new one just to get the bad juju off my car.

Dang, at first I thought the snow was damage to the paint. You must've hit that curb hard and fast?

Stop chasing animals! You are cruel! ;) Really bad lucked I meant... hope you guys get this fixed! J~
:laugh: Kind of reminds me of my bumper right now after driving up and down from California and all the bugs I killed.

I've done this too. You're not the only one. But mine wasn't as bad as yours. I'd say my damage is six inches long. I covered it up a bit with touch up paint.

I did this at school... Parked next to a ridiculously high curb and forgot it was there, nice scratch on the side skirt and lower rear door :(

Oh yea, I did this too only my car was stock height and went right over the curb. Still scratched the bottom though.

Both of mine have ripped Off. Theyre just barely on. All the bottom tabs are broken. But they've held on since and its been like 20k miles. Lol
