    You might want to go through insurance on that one. Those grilles are pretty exxy mate.

    Yep at least a few k in parts, plus you’ll have to re-do the radar alignment when you disconnect it

    Not so easy to find a decent repairer, the insurers "preferred" ones all have chop shop type reviews "extra scratch on door" "did 1/2 a job"... I was recommended Spencer Panels but they seem to be booked up until December+ ... anyone else got a good recommendation ? Thanks! So much hassle for a rabbit smashing the grille Apparently if the radar is damaged its big $$.

    Agree, also "Mr Gloss" in Moorabbin, if that's closer for you.

    Thanks for the options, seems like a grille and radar fix at this point, insurance - somewhere in the $7k+ range if radar is done apparently.

    Pulled the trigger on some Koya SF10 wheels today in satin black, I think they'll look fairly decent. Will post some pics when the arrive in the coming weeks.
