this happened when i was parked in my lot, while sitting in the car. i watched as a blazer backed straight into my car. the lady was on her cell phone, and obviously not paying attention.

the damage




5 days in the body shop later it's good as new


it got a new hood ($1200), new front bumper ($900), left headlight ($800 :ugh:), new front emblem ($140), along with labor and paint came to about $3700 (paid by her insurance).
i told them to keep the front plate bracket off, too.
i never knew that pontiac emblem was supposed to be red! :rollpicard:

thanks. After she got out and looked she wanted to move her car back into a spot. She had state farm insurance, which was very pleasant to deal with. No questions asked, no bs. All OEM parts were used to fix it.
and yes, she was black

I'm with state farm and they've been great when having to file a claim. Some lady hit my car in parking lot a few years ago (she was white) and one quarter-size dent cause $1,500 worth of repainting. She refused to pay, so state farm billed her the deductible and filed a claim in her name -- she had state farm as well.
