New member here and sick to my stomach. Please check out this for me. I hit a curb in a parking lot today. Nothing visible from the outside, but I have to replace the "shroud" under the front splitter and also under the motor. The real damage is to what I believe is the engine cradle. Outside of it being dented, I don't think there are any other issues with it. Although I will have to get my car realigned. Thoughts??

I'd have that inspected - the main concern would be the integrity of the welds and if that cradle is structurally sound.

That's really too bad. Unfortunately, this is a good reminder for all of us that backing in to curbed parking stalls is the way to go. Let us know how that turns out for you. Good luck

Yikes. How fast were you going? This damage is too bad for just a simple parking spot pull in mishap.

As everyone else here advised, get that thing replaced. I hope that insurance helps you out because the repair will be expensive.
