Default jesus darn@#$% !!!!

one day before our big meet of the year and some asian woman backs her minivan into me this afternoon

my LF headlight lens is cracked
my fiberglass V4 bumper is toast.



now I get to talk to the fine folks at ICBC
don't know what they will do since it's not the original bumper, and I don't have a receipt.

anyone know where I can get a V4 bumper???

Sorry to hear that Johnny.. some ppl drive cars that are too big for them to handle.

Does Ron still have his V4 bumper for sale? And I think some guy by the name of N/A Impreza was selling one too..

Good luck in your search for the replacement..

OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! those stupid "C-lai" i feel for you

V4 bumpers are really hard to find. i was looking for one last year at around april and it was impossible. found one from japan but total with shipping was $1200. so i did not get that. ICBC are horrible. they were going to replace with stock bumper, but i didn't want that so i requested to "fix" the fiberglass, it took a long time since fiberglass IS really hard to fix.
but i think fixing is best now....and mine's like brand new.

hmm. you got pics of it? how bad is it? maybe the bodyshop i go to can do yours since he had two months with my V4.

That sucks monkey balls, your best bet to find a v4 front bumper is to look south of the border. I've seen some dealerships stock a V4 bumper now and then somewhat of a rarity but it happens. I'll keep an extra eye out if one pops up.

Aiya. Bummer man!!!

Rallispec seems to stock the V4 bumpers... how are they different from the USDM ones?

Since there's a bunch of guys coming up tomorrow morning, maybe you might be able to get one to bring one up if you're real quickstyle on the NWIC...

BTW if you want to order one from the States, you can ship it to my PO Box in Blaine and I'll give you the keys to pick it up. Not sure if they'll ding you any extra large package fees or whatever, but you're welcome to use it. Anything I can do to help out...
