The damage was as a result of less-than-careful paking manuevers. Basically, it looks like they caught an edge of the lower valance/spoiler down by the riight side wheelwell and continued backing up. Twisted the cover, cracked the paint and ripped out all of the plastic rivets, as well as tearing through the mounting holes on the bumper cover, so it is a piece of junk at this point. Owner of the lot has shown a willingness to make me whole on this.

Car will be at BMW of SF for an inspection on Thursday and they even have a State Farm adjuster who works there, so it should be fairly painless as these things go....

Also, I have an EVO3 front splitter that is installed, which I will not re-install after the repairs, so it will soon be for sale. It looks totally undamaged, but I will pull it and see. If anybody wants the splitter (or the used bumper cover!) for a cheap price, drop me a line.


Yes, I was describing how to remove the bumper cover/bumper as one unit. I was able to reuse my bumper foam, et al. from a recent accident but had to get a new cover (outside skin). It's fairly obvious how to dissect once it's removed from the car.
