As my ex was an excellent body man, I’d never go to a dealer for either mechanical or body work. They tend to overcharge and sometimes not even correct the exact problem. Best thing imo is to ask friends for recommendations.Tapped someone’s trailer hitch today (pictures below).
1. Doesn’t seem to be any damage other than the plastic. Still planning to get the front end looked at. Worth taking to the dealer, or do you think a local shop would be the right move?
2. Looking for suggestions on a replacement grille. “Replacement” part via a third party is running just under $100, “OEM” looks like 150. And honestly they look to be the exact same. Or is there a cool aftermarket grille people are digging? Also how hard of a swap is this? Can I do it in my driveway or should I get it done by a shop?
