so this happened after my last post. While in a downpour, a large tree branch fell about 10 ft in front of my car. I had no time to react and had to run it over. After a loud bang, the car continued to drive fine and I noticed the A/C stop working (got very humid). After a couple of miles (mostly down hill) I arrived at my destination and took the following picture:
Still raining, I smelled antifreeze (ironically after I did a drain/fill the previous week) and knew the car wasn't drivable. The temp gauge did show "one bar" more so I know the engine was fine.
Doesn't look bad at all, but the damage was done. One of my Morimoto LED foglights was missing, lower, middle grill was damage, radiator ripped open and possible damage to the evaporator.
Lower fan was pushed in, but never touched the engine / exhaust /
After taking the front bumper off, I was able to see most of the damage. Structure of the car wasn't damaged, seemed to concentrated on the radiator itself.
I never bothered contacting the insurance b/c I know they will total the car. Besides, I don't believe it will cost much to repair this.
what I need:
1) one Denso Radiator
2) 2 (upper and lower) hoses
3) 2 (right and left) radiator top supports (mounts)
4) one A/C evaporator and probably other lines that are damaged that I'm not seeing.
5) one middle/lower grill
6) one fog light kit from ebay so I can have the bumper mount assembly. ($35, LOL)
7) one new set of Morimoto LED fog lights (urrghh)
I'll post updates.
