    Ya , No one was hurt just sucks ... He was 100% at fault ! Icbc told me to get it fixed but most of the repairs are to be fixed not replaced ! Bit of a piss off . I wanted to up grade the bumper to the V one and the grill as well . But no go too much $$ just hope the color match goes well .

    Have you tried using a mom and pop body shop as I dont think a big or dealer body shop will agree on doing the V upgrade. It may be some out of pocket cost but will be worth it.

    Ya , I tried them all my dealer was the best my buddy works in their auto body shop . However the cost vs replace is the issue . Icbc is only allowing like 200 in repair the the bumper , minus the V bumper price he said would cost me around 6-700 bucks plus the grill is another 500 . Mine was not damaged enough . Icbc will only replace front fender and headlight + assembly . Was looking at the possibility of a E&G classic grill to replace mine and have them do the install but not sure how it will look ? ..

    Are any of the bumper tabs broken? I used to work as an estimator. If the tabs are broken you can get a new bumper, pray for broken tabs on the supplement.

    In BC drivers have to have a green 'N' on their car for 2 years after they get their license.

    Whereabouts in BC are you?

    Cool. Good dealer over there. They're one of the ones I look after.
