Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

because i went to the store and parked to close to the curb. when i was leaving i ripped the bumper off his bmw. i had to drive home with it in the trunk. thank god his dad fixed it!


I am no troll 

I dont think he was being serious when he said I was grounded but he was really mad when i happened. 

I did drive it again today he just said to please be careful

I do plan on getting my own van, suv or wagon soon. 

I have never had any other issue while driving. i have been driving for 10 years. I have never even gotten a ticket! all the ladies saying i should learn to drive can you say that? think before you judge! 

The BMW sits VERY low

lol i broke the clip of the bumper on my parents minivan when i just got my license. My mom was in the car with me she said "shit happens, just try to remember the bumper is low in front!" my uncle (mechanic) replaced the clip.

I just want to add my opinion on the ppl who are asking how you managed to rip a bumper off a car by parking too close. clearly they never saw a BMW let alone DROVE one!! if they ever had they would know how low it sits and how dangerous some parking lot concrete barrier thingys are!! I've seen tons, never driven one. I did have a nissan sentra that was super low (about 8 inch clearance in front) and I broke a couple of clips that hold the bumper on that car too. my boyfriend (now husband) fixed it for me!!

shit happens at least you didn't rip it to pieces. and it's fixed! :-)

I scrape my own car all the time.. I drive a 2005 honda civic. When my Mom and I were driving on a trip for 4th of July, I was about 7 hours from my house when we start hearing this scraping noise every time we hit a hump in the interstate. I freak out, take the next exit and pull over.. well from how many times I have scraped the bumper on the little stoppers in parking lots, it had started to tear and my mom had to rig it up so we could continue lol

Holy smokes! How far on to that curb did you get before you stopped!! LOL stuff happens! One time my mom brought my nephew and I to the drive-in when we were little and she side swiped the post and left a HUGE dent and scratch down the side of my dads truck.. It was pretty bad lol
