So after 1 week of owning my new Giulia, I had already got into an accident :crying:
A guy pulled out in front of me, even though I had the right of way. I hit the brakes and tried steering away without hitting anything else around me but couldn't avoid the corner of this bumper. Didn't seem to affect the frame so I am crossing my fingers. Things just don't feel the same as a "new car" anymore. It still drives fine but the headlight is now angled downwards.

How's your headlamp aim? It's often an indication of below-the-skin damage.

Was the other driver on his phone or texting?

When you get it back all fixed up it will feel new again.

unlucky I too know that feeling and mine was a minor scuff in comparison. Get that baby to the best shop in town and you won't notice any difference i'm sure :)

oh no!!!!! and I just saw her this weekend! They are def going to replace that front left fender and possibly the bumper. Looks like the hood got bend a little also. Maybe you can salvage the headlight if its not cracked and the clips on the back are not broken. **** man!

I think you have the Alfa Rosso which is a bonus when it comes to paint matching. The Giulia's metallic paints would be very difficult to paint match especially with all those flakes.

It hurts just looking at that. Over the weekend, my wife drove mine up into a narrow driveway with curbs on both sides and demolished the rim on the driver's side.
We're still married.
For now.
