I pull into my driveway and put a lil too much gas :( I hit a mound of ice at the end of the curb a foot tall. I sent the pic to the dealer service manager, says he can bang it out for $50. I should've bought an automatic.

Ouch !!! :( That sucks !!!

Was your previous car an automatic?
I tried to learn stick and gave up. I liked the CVT so went w/ that instead of the regular auto.
Yea my Civic had automatic. It was the only 09 with stick, I couldve got an auto but it was used with much more kms. The service manager said "good thing it didnt have the sport package bumper, it wouldve been much worse." Gonna bring it in when my purge valve sensor comes in. Ugh fml.

Don't pay for that. Take off the bottom splash guard and push on it from the inside. It will pop right back out. Then send me $25 for saving you $50.

just pop it out urself, easy. if u dnt feel comfterble then take it somehwere, im srry that sux. if it makes u feel any better the first 2 weeks i had my V (just learning how to drive stick like you) i got jumped by a gang member with a crowbar and he shattered my passenger window with me in it, i popped the clutch rand over a center divider and bent my whole driver side fender in. I took it to nissan, turns out the pple that were test driving the car burned the clutch out, and the battery was leaking acid all over the battery harness. NIGHTMARE. u will get a stroke of good luck though hang in there!

Well it was my thought to pop it out myself too, but because of the sub-zero temps, I'm afraid that I might spiderweb the paint. It happened to my friend's integra, same situation, we popped it out but then it started to spiderweb. I called my buddy at his bodyshop, gonna take it there tomorrow. Gonna work on it inside where its warm so it doesn't flake the paint off when we push it out.

This must be a different type of crowd then my last car. If your worried about the temp of the bumper grab a hair drier and heat it up first.

I vote for the hair dryer and popping it out yourself... I had a horrible day last week - someone charged $1200 on my debit card, a pet hamster died, I sprained my ankle... all in one day! Just think, this bad luck HOPEFULLY will be done with! It's run its course!

ouch! that sucks!!
someone backed into my versa today...while i was standing there watching. where i live in south florida we don't parallel park much...so obviously this idiot didn't know how far back he could go. what was worse was as i was screaming "if you back into my car i promise..." and "don't hit it!" there was this guys wife outside of the car telling him he could go farther back. thankfully its a scuff that i'm sure can be buffed out...but i was about to kill someone today lol

I also watched someone back into my Civic last summer, I yelled at him, he got out of his car, gave me $300, and then drove away lol.

dont give up on driving a stick! when you get better at it, its a ton of fun. and you have so much more control on whats happening. i felt the same when i learned (on a buddy's focus) and ive grown to love it.
I've always wanted to drive manual, and I'm trying my best. I've driven my friends around today, and they say I'm doing pretty good.

Sport bumper FTW!!! :biggrin5:
It could be done sometime. Not yet though lol.
