Drove down from Boston to NY to pick up my GC. Beautiful bathurst black. Drove it over to the dealer to get my genesis emblems done, hit a pothole, cracked my fender. Granted, this was my fault for not understanding how low the GC was and how dangerous potholes can be.

Second thing. Driving back up to Boston, going 75 on the interstate, I hit a freakin bird. The bird cracks my grill and knocks my new genesis emblem off the front. I'm going on the highway so I have no chance to stop and look for it.

Wow thats crazy. I just bought mine last weekend and have been parking it way out by itself in parking lots to try to keep door dings away. I would probably be close to snapping right now if I was going through what you are. How do you like the car besides those things?

Lol, I've had mine for over 3 months and I still do this!

To the OP: that really sucks, sorry to hear :( On the upside, maybe you're getting all the bad luck out of your system in one fell swoop!

@Darkshine, I go to school in Boston but live in NY. Also, Boston dealerships didn't have the 2011 model, while NY did.

Wow that IS some bad luck! At least you have an excuse to start modding. Hope you get everything fixed ASAP. Potholes are lethal. Did you get the rspec or track too? Suspension is not forgiving at all on those.

Sorry about the bad luck! Now I know to be careful around potholes. I really hate them, especially after the rain in So Cal, when a billion new potholes show up.

Yeah SoCal roads are in REAL bad shape right now. I hit a pothole doing about 70 on the110. NOT a happy sound, but luckily no damage.

At least it gives you an excuse to get an after-market grill and get rid of the ugly (should have been on a sedan) stock one.

Cracked your "fender" on a pothole? :squint: When you say "fender" what do you actually mean?

The fenders are the side panels by the wheels. The bumper is the big thingy in the front.
