What piece are you talking about? As mine had the ZR1 aero, I had a number of carbon pieces up there on my C6Z along and around the splitter.

Did you really cream a skunk or was that a click bait headline?
You should be able to buy every piece separately if it’s factory. After seeing the prices you may want to go aftermarket though. Especially with the carbon fibre parts. The bumper is basically the entire nose clip so this must have been a big ass skunk. Wow 😮
Might be some guys around with some of the aero laying around too.

Well good news the car didn’t get sprayed with cologne.

I would think a visit to your dealership or a 5 minute google search for this stuff should answer all you questions.
Pretty certain you can get anything but as you say... when. Carbon fibre parts often come with a long lead time.

man wanted to drive it more instead of having it layed up waiting for parts
I can certainly understand your thoughts there.
Hope you’re in for a quicker fix than I think you may be due to parts waiting. The actual work to replace this stuff is not at all difficult or time consuming.

Some of the damage is minimal but it's damage spoiler is in three pieces

Tear off or zip tie the loose stuff and drive your car until the parts come in.
Not optimal and is going to get you a few looks, but you can’t see it from behind the wheel.
Maybe keep the speed under 200kph till it’s back together 😀

So little time left so get what you can on the odometer. It is not the complete front end that shattered.

They have built the cars to the point of stupid low. Even a squirrel isn't going to survive an accident. With our 2005, we keep my eyes peeled a long way ahead for anything on the road. Out in the country we see a fair bit of road kill that is big enough to do a fair bit of damage.

Not stupid low at all. That is how they are made to hold the road.
Once was in front of a few Spyders who wanted to pass me. Dam if I would let that happen. So at 140K mommy goose and goslings decided they want to cross the road. I couldn't brake so I just hoped like hell nothing would break on the front end. No flying feathers, no thud and when I got home no damage. Guess those goslings learned to fly pretty fast. lol
