Tire Debris vs. Me...

0-1

Hit chunk of retreaded tire on the ride home today and it took out my JL Motoring lip. Looks like I can buff out the bumper fairly easily however I am concerned about underneath the car. It also ripped out a chunk of the "fabric" and cracked the plastic plate underneath. Car feels the same, no issues during the rest of the commute.

Is this worth looking into? It is hanging a bit lower than the opposite side.

Damn. See those all the time, but have been lucky so far. You need to replace that part man; it's only like $20. And the lip, of course. That one will hurt your wallet more . Oh, and the bumper. Maybe just blend that area. Good luck man.

Thanks for the advice. I'll start looking for the parts. Hopefully installation is easy.

If anyone or any vendors know of or carry these parts please feel free to hit me up.

Thanks

Thanks guys, you rock.

Ordered the parts: Needed parts number #20, Passenger side #23 and some bolts and clips.

I got through this site: http://www.bmwpartscenter.net/partlo...?siteid=215996

Called them up and they were extremely helpful and their prices were fantastic.

Really appreciate all the help.
