I went to install my headlight a few days ago and I ran into a problem. My bumper was pushed back so far that the headlight won't fit into place. I tried wrapping a chain around the bumper and wrapping the chain around a tree and tried to pull the bumper out. It didn't work. :-( I went to a local bodyshop and they said it would cost around $700 to fix it right. He did say that I could take a Sawsall and cut out a section of the offending intruder and I should be ok. I was told that the amount I would cut out would not severely reduce the protection of the bumper. I borrowed a Sawsall tonight and will try to do some cutting tomorrow.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall, torque is how much of the wall you take with you.
I nearly missed totalling my car yesterday on my lunch break!
I got Sirius as a gift and was changing the station when I looked up and saw that I was approaching a red light as if it were green. I began braking, and the wet pavement caused my brakes to lock up. I skidded through the intersection at about 15 mph and missed a new Jetta's rear end by about 1 foot. Scared the hell out of me. The Sirius is sitting in the glove box for a while.
