the day before thanksgiving im heading to work and its raining a lil bit, so an old man in this big *** truck is doing 45 in a 55 even though its not raining hard. we get to an intersection were a yield sign is and instead of pulling out when there is absolutly NO cars coming he slams his brakes and i slide right into his bumper. in the end he ends up with a lil 3 inch ding and youll see my car





the bad part is that the car shop is less than 50 feet away from the intersection, and maybe a 100 yards up the street is the car rental place. so im driving a Dodge Caliber until the mid or end of December.

o hell yea. the insurance company gives them a check. what they spend it on... oem... after market.... they dont give a sh!t. i know, i work for an insurance company. if u need a new bumper and they have to spray the old one and buy a new one.... u can buy a body kit and have them put it on and pay the difference.

which co. do u work for cuz im hoping this place will do it, and anyways it seems like everyone who gets on an accident on here end up with aftermarket parts when they get it fixed, should i ask the garage or call the insurance co?

I've had one experience with a car shop fixing my car after and accident and they were fine with me going with aftermarket front fenders, front bumper and headlights. In the end I decide not to do that because I planned on trading the car in within the next 4-5 months. They did call and ask if I'd like an Optima battery or an OEM one. I took the Optima of course.

just talk to the guys doing the auto repairs tell them youll order the parts online, then they remberse you for it with the insuracne money, and since 05 bumper is cheaper online than from dealership you actually make a profit for the guys fixing your car... Should work

WOW I know you need a bumper but from the pictures it looks like it perfectly intact. . .. anyways I feel your pain man my cars been in the shop since last month. Anyways same thing happened to my boyfriend.. . .two yrs ago we were at a red light and the jerk-off in front of us decided to put it in reverse cuz he was past the line. . . we left plenty or room for him. . and i mean plenty b/c there were like 3 car lengths between us. . . . .well short story is he ran over the hood in reverse and the body shop he took it to bought him an aftermarket bumper with the new cash. . . . .the insurance company has nothingto do with it. . like the guys said they just send the check. . it all depend on how cool the guys are who you take it to! Good luck.. . .get back on the road soon!
