Wow. That is horrible. Please let us know who shipped that so we can stay away from them. Hurts me to look at it.

Man, why couldnt he have just bubble wrapped it? right now the money is up in the air because he wont refund me, so a claim is being placed. Hopefully he will refund my money and give me the address to ship it back to him.

dang.... i hate to see the way peeps doing their business....

i totally feel ya man!

i bought my e39 angel eyes xenon headlight from this guy from boston and he didn't put the bubble wrap enough so the headlight adjuster broke while shipper throw box here and there. i'm 100% sure that good 2 layers of the bubble wrap can protect the item under the harsh shipping transition.

and the same story goes i guess, because the seller who sold me the headlights also told me that he won't refund me the money.

oh wellz, your bumper isn't even useful anymore, but i was able to fix the darn headlights and now it's in my bimmer.

hopefully you can get your money back or if the bumper is insured, you can get the money from the insurace.
peace

Nope, it's a replica tornado front bumper. Hopefully I can either get the money back or it'll be repairable for a decent amount

Yeah, Fed Ex already decided on the case that they wont cover the insurance because the bumper was shipped insufficiently well. Oh well, maybe there will be a positive resolution to this.

Yea, my auth RD Tornado front was pretty f-ed up too when it arrived..Chips, corners were broken off, scratches galore...I think cuz it went from Italy to RD Sport in CA and then to me in GA. Long trip!

Still tho my bodyshop at the time fixed it up real good and looks fine now...

Good luck!

That looks repairable to me. You should however get some money back for the repair cost.
