  1. Time to first scratch/dent

    About 3 months in, neighbor was moving and put a nice sharp ding above the door frame...
  2. How bad is it?...

    I just watched a youtube video on how to remove the bumper, took about 30 minutes. Took it to my dinky apartment and hammered the large dent out and used a sharp plastic tool to push out the sharp dents and tears/cracks. These bumpers are made of rubbery plastic!! I'm glad I decided to try it on...
  3. How bad is it?...

    I did a quick fix on my own today. Got a quote for $840 for a new bumper and paint job I think I will go ahead once I save up some money :D
  4. How bad is it?...

    Ohh, can I use...
  5. How bad is it?...

    Holy, that is cheap! and I found some videos on the internet on how to replace it. I guess I have to find someone to paint it for me as well. Thanks!!
  6. How bad is it?...

    I backed up into a metal post (going very slow, no accel). Could anyone give me an estimate how much it would take to just get the large dent out? I don't mind the cracks and tears for now, just want the shape to be good enough to pop back in the side of the bumper. Any recommendations on body...
  7. Paint scuff on bumper due to hit and run

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Some light brushing with Mr. Clean magic eraser following by ultimate compound and waxing made it look mostly like new. That touch up paint job is horrendous though.
  8. Paint scuff on bumper due to hit and run

    I just woke up one morning and saw this on my back bumper.... Do you guys think I can buff out the black marks (except for the obvious paint damage on the far left)? I tried using claybar, the marks got lighter but I couldn't get it to perfectly go away...
  9. Huge ding above door

    Thanks for giving me hope. hehe
  10. Huge ding above door

    Ah thanks for the info but I'm nearly 6 hours from NYC.
  11. Huge ding above door

    Thanks for the reply guys. I contacted a local dent repair dude and he's worried that he'll peel off extra pain if he does the glue method. In the mean time I tried applying some touch up paint to prevent rusting. Do you guys know if accessing that spot from the back is easy/possible? It seems...
  12. Huge ding above door

    Thanks for the estimate. Do you think I can possibly do a paintless dent removal and just use some touch up paint for a cheaper fix?
  13. Huge ding above door

    I just noticed this huge ding above the driver side back door. I don't know how it got there or where it came from.... Can anyone help me out here on what would be the best way to fix this (and price range)? Thanks
  14. Whistling noise from turbo engine at low speeds

    Yup, that is exactly what I hear. I just ignore it these days and am enjoying my car!
  15. Faint metal scrubbing noise when braking slowly at low speeds

    I'm getting a faint metal to metal scrubbing noise when I brake very lightly at low speeds. Is this normal? My brake doesn't really feel firm compared to other cars I've driven. I'm at 900 miles at the moment, and it has been making this noise out of the lot.
  16. Jerky movement at very low speeds

    So I noticed today at rush hour traffic that sometimes when I let go of the brake, the car jerks forward, and when I press the brakes, the car kinda stops in a jerking manner. Does anyone have the same issue? It just happened to me today, not sure if it's repeatable though.
  17. Strange sound at startup

    I am having the same grinding noise issue with my EX-T... How hard can it be to figure out where it's coming from?! The conditions that the noise makes is really specific, and so is the noise pattern (there can't be too many places that could make a noise like this). I mean, it's making a...
  18. Whistling noise from turbo engine at low speeds

    Thanks haztorks! so that's what it was :D learned something today.
  19. Whistling noise from turbo engine at low speeds

    Hi, I'm getting a faint whistling noise from the turbo engine when I'm accelerating or decelerating at low speeds. Is this normal for the turbo engine? Can anyone please help me out, this is bugging the hell out of me. Thanks!
  20. Whistling noise from turbo engine when decelerating

    Hi, I bought my 2016 EXT a couple weeks ago, and I have been hearing this tiny whistling noise when I take my foot off the brake pedal or when braking at low speeds. Is this normal? I never owned a car that made this noise...
