You can tell people that if they put a bra over the front end, no one would even notice the damage.
Bumper stickers are also good for hiding rear damage. I had the muffler fall off my MG and it melted a small half dollar sized hole right thru the rear plastic bumper where the exhaust tip hit it. Put a oval GB sticker over it and it looked as good as new.
Hmmm... I'll pass this link along to a friend of mine who's interested in a S2000. (She autocrosses competitively but isn't sure she wants a 2004 S4 because it's been put into another class against Corvettes, etc.)
