Glad he hit the drivers side and not the passenger side, might have took out the SMIC

The votex looks to be repairable, but i need to find another bumper for the winter

rad is toast, managed to knock the one mount off the rad and cause a big hole, the ac rad is a bit bent, but doesn't look to have any holes

the mystery is how the tranny side motor mount broke, it's actually cracked, but no marks on the oil pan, so not sure how that happened

at least the little guy didn't suffer, he must have hit the license plate just right, cause he is headless, as grusome as that seems, it better that way since he didn't suffer, i hate when animals get ran over, but don't die feel bad for them

I have an aftermarket one. Painted black. I bought it for my old Jetta and never got around to installing it.

I don't have the lower valance for it though. I do have a fiberglass replica GLI lip on it at the moment. Let me know if you are interested in the lip.

Its a cheap fibreglass replica. I was going to use it as a winter lip, but I need the $$$ right now. I was looking for $75.

I took out 3 birds, 1 bat and an owl with my 2009...It was a flying animal magnet.

I'm keeping an eye out for those coons now though...

speaking of owls, did you hear about the guy last week who hit one (somewhere near Putnam) and it was stuck in his grille and it stayed there all day until he went to Sarnia and back to Woodstock; in there 8 hours+ and not a broken bone in its body.

It does now lol...RIP. I think the birds were a warning :p

I hit all those in less than a month :eek: In 5 years driving my other car, I've only hit one rabbit(and a kamikaze squirrel or two).

Yeah, i'd still like to get it, i'm running my cracked front bumper, without a lip, cause a lip won't attach to it

Are you around sat?

Does that mean you don't need my bumper anymore?
