Seems Like My Car is Cursed

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Last week, on the way home from work, just as I get to my exit, I see an object in the road. Like the dumbass that I am, I think I can dodge it. I continue to merge into the exit lane and I hear a loud boom. Low pressure light goes on and I pull over to a bank by the exit. Three inch laceration on the side wall. Looks like two new front tires for me. Stuck in the middle of rush hour traffic and it takes my dad an hour to come get me.

Just this morning on my way to work, I get onto a farm road that changes into a toll road. I open up the car a little to stretch her legs, and just as I get up to speed,BAM! CF lip loosens up and almost breaks free. Only one bolt is holding her on and the damn lip is dragging on the ground. Lip is scratched to hell and non salvageable.

Now I'm just waiting for my bearings to give way.

Thanks for listening.

It's all good man. It could be much much worse, believe me.

Let's recap: you hit something and screwed up a tire, and had a problem with an aftermarket, cosmetic addition.

Sell it before it burns to the ground - it's a ticking time bomb!

Lol, indeed.

I can see where the OP is coming from, but taking a step back and opening a cold drink should bring things back into perspective.

Nah, not really tearing him down or anything. Bad days definitely suck.

I meant the situation could have been much worse. My sister in law died because some kid was texting on the freeway and merged right into her.

All about perspective.

It's just a rant. First world problems mostly. I ended up getting a fresh set of PSS's for the fronts, and I guess now a new lip is in order. I'm very grateful for what I have... well I guess I don't have a lip any more. It just sucks none the less.

I feel you, bro. Step back and have a cold beer, though. That always helps

Got pictures of the damaged lip? If you don't care about the CF look, then maybe it's repairable depending on damage. Here's the Mode Carbon lip I repaired:



Good as new (different finish obviously)

The top half of the lip completely separated from the bottom half. I'd have to glue it back together.

Let's see...
3 front right tires (2w/nails, one split sidewall from"small" rock)
Break line broke (something hit it underside), no breaks on highway. Tow truck
Break line leak, after just repaired, on way home. No breaks on highway. Tow truck
Transmission electronics died, just after warrantee expired, down 7 weeks, $7,600 later...
One month later Bearings failure, engine needs rebuild...(current)
All this in 20,000 miles, in a year and a half.
