I should probably add an extra level too. Shop estimate versus insurance company estimate.

Got a Mazda 3 for a rental. Lookin' at prolly 3-4 weeks. FML. Hilarious that people compare these cars to the GTI. Not even in the same universe.



No ticket. Following too close warning. It's bullshit considering the circumstances and what the girls in the car I hit were saying about the situation, but I fully expected to get something since I struck from behind.



No, I-691 to I-91 merge.



Yes'th.



Doesn't seem to be any structural damage to the suspension. Tough to tell last night because I had to drive with a part of the fender well rubbing on the top of my tire. Jacked it up this morning and took it out. Drove to the shop and it seems to ride normal. No pulling or vibrations.

Air bags didn't deploy. That could be the difference maker.
Did your seat belts lock?

Need to read my sig a little closer, man. Most of my stuff is just a wishlist. Don't have all that much in the way of mods.

Not 100% sure, but I would assume so.

I estimate $3,800- would be considerably higher if xenon headlights.

UPDATE:

Meant to update this thread earlier, but forgot.

Anyway, received an estimate from my insurer. The body shop is basically working off that number. They're battling it out because my insurer wants them to use used parts for all repairs to save money. The shop is obviously pushing back. I know the owner and he knows what I want...new parts and a perfect job.

So, they're at an impasse.

I don't want to use the number that was provided by the insurer as it's likely to change before the work is done. The only hint I'll provide is to say that most in this thread are off.

Would be my guess too...

Depends if any suspension stuff was damaged or if the front part of the Unibody was bent at all.

If so? I would get out of it.

Glad Everyone came out of this ok...
