Hello all!

Long time reader, first time poster. My 2017 eTron was the sad recipient of road debris today.
Was checking to see if any other users have had similar unfortunate encounters, and how did you proceed.

Lower bumper is dented a bit inwards relative to grill.

Image
This hurts my heart.

Image
Lower brackets damaged, albeit structurally bumper is largely intact.

Any insight would be much appreciated, thank you!

Cheers,
Jesse

That’s what body shops and insurance are for.

Good thing it didn't damage an LED headlight. Those jewels are US$3,500 each. I know thanks to a deer that jumped out in front of my wife and managing to crack the headlight lens with a shoulder. Grills and hoods are pretty cheap though.... I didn't need a new bumper cover.
