Those scratches of yours are nothing. I'm sure everyone has some sort of scratches under the bumper... scratches no one sees unless you get on your knees.

Autocross bumper casualties. You should have seen the cone.

no pics of my BRZ, but the scratches are there taunting me at every car washing. On my Z4, I ran into a parking log and knocked the under engine pan loose so that it was dragging. Thank god I did it in front of Home Depot so that I could buy the necessary fasteners to get it back in place.

bro, those scratches a nothing! shooot probably happened when you hit that plastic bag, or possibly some strong wind.


Dont sweat it for a moment. Feel good that you and your car endure and do the damn thing in these streets lol if you get a bloody knuckle do you cry? no. you do however just clean it up and get back out into the world. scars and all, we keep moving.


lol ok thats all

Nothing to feel bad about. About the only FR-S that doesn't have scratches under the front lip ...... hasn't ever been out of the garage.

No need to worry unless you whack it hard enough, that it breaks lose and is dragging on the ground.....

You should see what mine looks like after I did a night road rally last year. Didn't realize how much of a dip this curved part in a road had, scraped all the paint off a corner of the bumper.

Plus all the cones I hit during autocross and rocks flying my way on the highway.

I swore an oath that this wouldn't happen to me, bc anyone that scrapes is a douche, right? But I just had to have that Super Assorted from the Mr. Sub with the fucked up curb . . .

My car is black, but where the paint is scraped off, it's white. Jeez, now that ain't too noticeable. I compounded it, touched it up, polished it, and while it isn't perfect, it's on the underside so it's completely invisible now unless you're on your hands and knees.

So as long as my wife isn't giving me a bj in front of our BRZ, she'll never know.

I now chalk it up as a war wound.

They're just gonna fuckin' happen my friend.

The first scratches are hard. I pulled into a steep driveway to turn around and heard the sickening grinding noise.

So now my front air dam has road rash but only seen if I lay on my back right in front of the car. I don't think of it unless I encounter threads like this one. And then it's " oh yeah, that happened to me too" and then move on to other matters.

When my neighbor had a 911 GT3, he used to put an area rug where his driveway meets the street before he pulled in.

Now that's a true car guy, and there are probably only one in ten thousand people who would get it.
