    So, today as I was coming home from work I had a white SUV come onto the highway and cut across all four lanes of traffic almost slam into my right side as I swerved into the HOV lane hitting the "rubber" lane dividers that are supposed to fold under your car with no damage to the front end. Well they didn't fold too well and now both my fog lights are missing, the whole housing and lights are gone. I have two empty holes in my bumper now and lots of vertical lines going across my bumper. I think they will buff out but now I need some new fog light housings and lights. Anyone have ideas for these, maybe this is the push I need for HID fog lights to match my HID headlights. Also, my driver side end of the bumper seems to be loose, anyone know of the bolt locations for that side. Maybe I can tighten it up a little bit. Pictures will be coming soon...just need to get the camera charged up and eat some lunch.

    Damn dude, that sucks. Did you get the plate off the suv?

    Check the for sale ads here for a set of stock fogs and take some rubbing compound and wax to the bumper.

    Hopefully the lines on the bumper are just from paint transfer, and not cracks in your paint. If you post pics, that would help to determine.
