    I test fitted 17s with my 14" rotors and brembos. Here are some pictures, this is before any grinding.






    It looks like only a small amount of grinding will needed.

    No....just what you see and my HID ballasts for the fog lights. They were tucked away along the inside frame rail behind the bumper.

    Wow, now I know why you sent me that PM. I'm not sure if that's repairable or not. May need to look for a new bumper. That's a pretty big hole, which can be filled, but I don't know how well it would turn out. Guess you can just take it somewhere and let them tell you.

Took it to discount tire a week ago to rotate and balance the wheels. Glad to see their work standards are so high.
    I had the same thing too and also once with the upper radiator hose after some work was done....I started driving away from the shop that fixed whatever and started to smell something that you shouyldnt be smelling!!...From then on (years ago) Ive ALWAYS checked whatever it was that i needed done to make sure that it was done and done correctly!! If my lugs are touched i make sure thay are ALL tight before i move the car I do almost all maintainence on my car so i dont have to worry as i used to before but if theres some things that i dont/cant do i make sure to check their work Like jeff says ''There is a very limited list of people" that i trust with my car!!

    Oh I know it's not repairable Jon. As I said....anybody can do the mechanical work, It's the paint and body I'm worried about. Figured you might know someone in the area here that's pretty good with paint. Insurance is covering this so I'm not too worried about the cost. I just want the paint and bodywork to "match"

    Thanks for the offer John. I wish I did too. It's not like boxing up a set of relocation brackets. But, If it's due to the shipping.....let me know what we can do. I'd be willing to send you what it would cost. Anything to cover my 250.00 deductible. Since this WAS my fault (technically) as far as my insurance company is concerned. But realistically.....it was the ass clown who took 3 lanes to cut in front of somebody.

    Thanks SSGuy.....I will get her all fixed up soon...just hate driving it now with that big hole in the nose :P
