OP, can you feel the scratches with your fingernail?

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

I agree on the driver issue but the supports are rusted. Which makes me believe it was done awhile ago, therefor a dealer issue. I would like to see the dealership pics.

If you remove the lower supports does it pop back into place?

Yes I can feel the scratches with my fingernail, and they are through the clearcoat.

I do not know. I'll try that this weekend. Looking at in person though, it appears the bumper is creased.

No chance of buffing them out, then.


This situation really sucks, bro. I hope it all works out well. Interior looks spotless and it's got low miles. As said before, make sure to get a good shop to do your work and you should still have a nice ride once all is said and done.

True, was thinking of no humidity. I see it came from MD though.

Seems the driver was the one as the damage appears to line up with the ramps. Was there any paint rubs on the ramps?
