Consider yourself lucky. 2 years ago, we had a huge hailstorm in chicago, my car looked like a golf ball. The only things that werent damaged were my wheels. It was over 11k in damages, had to wait for 4 months for my car to be repaired.

Costing the insurance company close to $20,000.00
I should have my baby back by the end of the week.

Did it have to be painted or paintless dent repair?

I've a friend here with a 2011 2ls that was way worst than that. Insurance cut him a check for*over $10k. If that car wasn't totaled then this one sure as heck isn't going to be either....

Ah that sucks man. I saw that weather headed my way and thought please not my camaro. Heard a tornado turned into a water spout on the Mississippi River headed to TN. Thankfully the weather died down and all I got was rain.
