That sucks. At least it doesn't look too seriously damaged... my main concern would be the color match on the new bumper cover.

I'd also ask if the person responsible has been disciplined or sacked... because I'm the kind of jerk who thinks people should be held accountable for their stupid mistakes and carelessness.

Somebody got fired for spilling oil all over my engine, getting a grease glob on my car, and improperly installing a fog bulb when I went in for my second oil change. The manager was beyond pissed.

I would like to but this is 1 of 2 dealers close enough to me and the other one would charge me to fix everything. (YES THEY ARE THAT BAD..They tried charging my orginal dealler 3k more that what it cost ford to at somethine OEM to the car.. thats neither here no there) and i have worked in shops before and accidents do happen. If the car was undriveable or total (i guess prob anything more that what it is) I want someones head lol.
But yes it i am concerned with the color match big time, I am not paying a cent for anything and hopefully they will take something off my 10k maintainace. I figured they have the car for another week there should be an open time.

FINALLY, I just picked up my FOCUS!!! Color match is almost if not perfect. (its a sunny day but cold so no pics) But they didnt charge me for the 10k tune up :). Soo happy to be in my SE Sport, handles SOOO differnt. I was getting use to the controls in the SEL but i enjoy my simplisity! Now i cant wait for summer to get the new rims on it.

....I suppose this can be the end of this thread :)....
