they never look like the amount... but behind the bumper a lot of shit could be broken thats why it usually is
He is right.


I had a similar thing happen to me about 4-5 months ago. Some idiot swerved outside the lines off the highway and picked up an 18 wheels tire thread chillin on the far side OFF road and rocketed it my way which tore apart my driver side foglight and bumper along with the under tray. Of course this was all on the surface... When I took the front bumper and driver side front liner off, the SST cooler had a massive dent in it... Like someone punched it real hard.. which in my case it was the fog light unit that I guess got angry and punched it right in the middle lol. My LICP was scratched to shit as well. Damage assessment was 6k. I only paid 500 bucks (deductible) and my insurance just wrote me a check for the damage so instead of getting OEM parts, i got ETS LICP and AMS SST cooler with it and instead of the shinny (gay in other words) chrome grill surround MR's have, gotten a black grill surround the GSR has. It is a shit situation but perhaps you can just upgrade your oil cooler with an aftermarket one?

No, its the light that controls your safety system like airbags, seatbelts, things like that.

SES - Service Engine Soon
Yes... When they first gave me the car it was on, they took it to Mitsu and they said it was some valve that needed to be replaced... They replaced in Monday and the car was ok for Tuesday and Wednesday... Yesterday, it came back :(

I will be taking it to Mitsu in the next few days to check what the problem is now... Hopefully a simple fix

That sucks.. But I know your pain and you would be surprised at how much stuff cost to replace and all the little things... My bill/insurance coverage was $22,000! after the crash and it was all body work. No suspension or any kind of mechanical/structural work needed (well the intercooler and headlight I guess could be considered mechanical) but other than that it was all body/paint...

**Result of putting the OEM summer tires back on a bit too early and getting into a 120km/hr fully sideways slide on the highway and making friends with the side of a truck
