      That take some seriously bad driving skills to rip off an R32 bumper at that height

      Maybe you should have phrased your statement differently.

      "Ohh yay, ripped the bumper off tonight."
      is completely different than
      "Ohh yay, the bumper got ripped off tonight."

      Well, I need some opinions. The .:R bumper isn't too messed up. But I'm thinking of switching to a 20th.

      Also opinions on wheels, miro 111's, rota grids, or polish a set of rc's?

      Grids require air to pull off usually
      Polishing RC's is time consuming but would look decent. Just not very wide so no stretch can be offered without looking weird
      111's are fairly played, especially silver on black, but look good

      I've always wanted miro's, the rc's wouldn't be a problem I've polished a set of blades before.

      I keep blowing the turn signal and hazard light fuse, checked the relay/button and swapped with a working one. Checked all the bulbs, still nothing. Anybody have any ideas?
