Well, DC crew, I ran into an accident this morning, the guy in front of me plowed two cars, and I wasn't able to stop short enough.

The damage wouldn't have been as bad, but the guy had a tow hitch in the back of his truck that tore right through the front of the car.

All that's hurt right now is my pride,
but it's just a car and will soon be repaired.....

Really sorry to see that, but it sounds like you have a good attitude about it, and most importantly no injuries.

I hope you can get everything fixed up as painlessly and quickly as possible.

Thanks all, i am actually surprised how well i'm handling this, i would have though i'd have been in tears.

Should turn out alright, the front end was getting blasted (rock chips) driving it so much (350 days a year) here in Colorado.

i actually don't mind the factory bumper cover, but i may consider an aftermarket hood, i've seen some cool ones around, any suggestions?

Otherwise, i'm just kicking myself in the ass for not leaving that extra 2 ft of clearance it wouldv'e taken, I suppose my next upgrade will have to be a sweet brake system....

but here's to a C5 as a DD!!!!!!

Might I recommend one with a center hood scoop somewhat larger than a trailer hitch? In fact, it looks pretty close to a C6-Z06 front end as it is now!
