May be DY. Getting sick of washing the car and rain right after. Even fine days black cars only last a few hours after washing.

That's hurt bro. I'm sure will back up or U turn if possible, when I saw a huge speed bump. I knew you want to do another true front lip test and drive by there back and forward with a lady witness LOL

RC, sorry to hear this
Fortunatly, there was no damage, nor scratch that could be seem,
easy bro, it's big luck in the bad luck.
My lips were severely scratched by unknow neighbor's domestic helpers after 2 weeks I receiving my car

Hope bad luck gone, good luck comes

Icy J, welcome to the F10 forum. Sometimes I visit you guys' E90 forum but you guys are never here. Should be here more often.

That car is AsiaKid's, one of our forum member. Sure looks sick with the whiteline, quad and Forgestar wheels. Thanks for the photo.

Well I'm not exactly an E9x owner, unless 16 year olds are suddenly capable of buying E93 323's...

Oh, sorry little bro. Didn't know. But your folks has a 323, right?

I drove when I was 16. Legal in California.

Talk about bad luck, mlai, I am not much better than you.

Lesson learned is the front lip won't scrap easily. Even the bottom and side skirts scraped badly, only minimal scratch to the lip.
A scratch that nobody can see, is it a scratch?
At least you can laugh about it..
I hit my car with a brick but i couldn't laugh about it, but at least i didnt cry

Further checked and the plastic jack pads are pretty ruined. Really not sure if I have damaged anything seriously. Need to jack up and check.
