Hi everyone, would like to get your thoughts on two topics, pothole damage and headlights:

a) Driving home, I accidentally hit a pothole dead on around 40 miles an hour, front right. It had a sickening crack noise. I still have the factory bilsteins. When I got home, I noticed a new scrape on the winglet (just had it fixed/repainted). Wheels look ok, not cracked. Nothing leaking from the suspension. What else should I check? Going to track on Friday.

b) After my front was repaired/repainted, my right main light no longer turned on. The little parker light is still ok. It may be just coincidence it's a blown bulb but I'm thinking it was not reconnected properly. Is it just a take off front wheel, remove liner and check job?

Thanks in advance for all your thoughts!!!

Just remove the front part of the liner and check the connections and bulb. no biggie

I would bring the wheel to a place that does road force balancing, they will be able to tell if it is egged from the impact
