I just took my first long distance trip. East end of Long Island to Lenox Mass. All on ICE, had to overcome my anxiety about losing MPG and going below 100. It was worth it. Got more thumbs up than any other time since I owned it.
Leaving, Tanglewood in bumper to bumper traffic, guy in car next to me hangs out window taking pictures. Finally gets out of car, steps in front of mine, and starts shooting away. Knew all about Fisker but never saw one. Sort of like having sex for the first time????
Trip was great, but last day made wide uturn and hit front right bumper pretty hard against curb, pushed it to within 1/8" of tire. Haven't been to body shop yet, but worried that this is not going to be repairable. Any thoughts?
Mikey- as I read your post I was so jacked about your experience and it reinforced my love for my car and how lucky those of us are to have jumped in to this beta test. then i read the last sentence and almost cra--ed my pants and was so bummed that something like that happened. No I cannot help but my thoughts and condolences are with you in this time of need. Godspeed.
Mikey 43, I think you're options at this point are:
1.) Duct tape.
2.) Find a replacement bumper online/auction, then trust a body shop to fix/paint.
3.) Contact Karmaman on this site, word is that he can work some fiberglass...
Took bumper off---heated it to make it maleable then repaired the support strut underneath--got matching touch up paint from their wholesaler. He said it was not a perfect job, but I cannot tell that it was repaired; Whew!!! Never thought it would happen. Would have paid $1m if he said that was the price, and this was in the Hamptons none the less. Owner of the body shop is sponsoring a Classic Car show in the Hamptons on 9/7--wants me to enter the car, said he never had so many positive comments about any car in his shop.
I will never make a full U turn again, going to Skip Barbera to relearn "K" turns.
Also, he is putting on new front tires which are pretty worn (7k miles). $175 apiece plus installation. Same price as Tirerack.com where he gets dealer discount.
