How many scratches does your '05 Sportivo front lip have ?


Recommended Posts


Well I hate to admit it but there was this one time (no not at bank camp) where I ran over a cyclist and his back wheel put a huge scratch in my spoiler.

Cost me $200 for his wheel and a new saddle (lucky I had a spare at home to give him).

Luckily the big black mark on the bumper rubbed off with Mothers swirl and scratch remover.

I had just been training with the guy he went home by bike I went home in the car with the bike in the back but eventually he went home in the sportivo with both bikes in the back.

Oh the embarassment

My car was once stuck at the end of the curve of an uphil in my friend's apartment. So, the chassis under the front door was touching the concrete. Did a bit of a burnout to get out of the uphill.

I guess it would leave a big scratch there. It did shaved the concrete afterall.

Haha, I've got a funny story about this one.

When I first lower the car which was about 1000kms after I bought it, I took it straight for a spin from the garage that did it. Marcus was in the car with me and I was really enthusiastic about the stiffer and lower springs so I pushed the car hard to feel the difference. It was then that I saw a speed hump right in front of me, well needless to say I hit the brakes but a little too late so I had my first scratch then.

Since then my philosophy is, if you can see it standing up, it isn't there! :lol: :P :lol:

my front lip gets munched by my driveway if I'm not 100% accurate with the angle of entry... :angry:

drivers side skirt has a big scratch from a rock on the side of my parents driveway quite large but not too noticable...

Bonnet has about 100 pit marks and stone chips thanks to roadworks on the Sturt Highway just outside Wagga Wagga and 2 trucks going the other way (way faster then the posted 60km/h :angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry: ) :ph34r: oh and track days don't help much either... :ph34r:

rear passenger door has key scratches (not deliberate keying) from a lady in the car park who was puttng her bag over her shoulder and fumbling the keys... AGAINST MY CAR!!! :blink::angry::angry::angry::angry:
