    So this happened this morning on the way to work....i didn't see the deer until it was too late, and plowed straight into it. Taking it to the body shop tomorrow. surprisingly the fender took the most of the damage even though it wasn't hit there. there is still hair and blood wedged behind the...

    So last night coming home from work at 3am (i work at a bar), I hit a deer. Could have been worse but my front bumper is cracked as well as my headlight. I have an 06.... Would the newer OEM bumper fit? Like the 2012 style? I have to take it into the body shop and have them install it all for...

    My wife hit a deer last night, and I need a fender and a headlight. The hood has a little damage. I have decided to take this opportunity to throw on aftermarket parts, but I don't want it to look "ricey". I like a nice clean look that is very subtle, but looks good. I haven't been able to...
  6. Problem Reports
    I hit a deer every spot on the right side of my bumper where there was a bolt broke off. So the right side of my bumper is hanging on by zip ties. I was wondering if anyone knew what my choices for a replacement bumper might be with my s-techs installed. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    Hokai, so I don't know how many of you are forced to drive in areas where you need your high beams, but I've decided they're pretty stinkin' worthless specifically because of the super bright dash indicator. After a couple of close calls with some deer though, I decided to do something about...

    This happened early Sunday morning about 4 am, driving home from a friends house on dark back roads. You can imagine by that time I was exhausted and in a rush to get home, so I was going a little over the speed limit at about 60 mph. Because of my tint and again being on unlit backwoods roads...

    Hey everybody. So a couple months back I hit a deer. The guy at the auto body shop supposedly searched high and low for the headlights that fit my car and finally found them, threw them in, and they're not the same ones I had in still. I bought the car with the headlights already in, so I didn't...

    Hey guys, I picked up my Eclipse a few months back. Haven't personally done any mods yet, but it came with xxr rims, injen exhaust, k&n intake, and d2 suspension. Unfortunately one of the previous owners did the black accent painting himself and didn't do a very good job of it. They also managed...

    A couple months ago I was on my way home from the movies around 1 am, going about 35, when BOOM, a deer jumped out of a bush and into the front passenger side corner of my car. I immediately pulled over to survey the damage but didn't even bother to see if the deer was alive. When I went to...

    I could go all day about how well theyve helped me stop over the last couple years. Whenever people suddenly stop or jump out in front of me..... I usually stop alot better than the guy behind me. I'd much rather be rear ended than for me to smash into someone. But thats not why i'm writing the...

    yep..driving back to university late at night on a deserted highway and a small deer darted in front of me. I hardly got a glimpse of it before it was too late. It hit the bumper and shot under the car (advantageous 4x4 status xD) where it dragged for several yards. Not insane amounts of damage...
