Default Got myself a new ride..... Banged it already

Hi Guys,
Long time since I posted here.... Anyways, I traded my aging 98 Lexus ES300 for a newer 2003 Lexus ES300 (the new shape and 210 Horses now + a lot of nicer stuff inside )

Alabaster pearl exterior and Black leather interior (Bird's eye Maple wood trim on the dash, 6-Disc In-dash Changer etc. etc.. Every option except GPS).
I love it.

Now the bad news.
This weekend, I was stopped at a red light and a dude in a Honda Civic couldn't brake in time and banged into my rear Bumper. The bumper is cracked now and will need to get that replaced. Probably this week :(

Will get some pics once I get that done.

Thanks guys..
You all know how it feels to get a new ride messed up.. It wasn't even a week old.

Anyways.. I have to take her to the dealer tomorrow for an estimate (The guy who banged me is going to pay for it).
Let's see how much a new Bumper comes to, the guys at Lexus charge 28 USD even for a light bulb(really)...

I was waiting for the Bumper to be fixed before I took pics, but guess I'll take some anyway
