That's where the police report may have been a mistake. A lot of times (depending on who is involved) it's best to just let the insurance companies take care of it. But for something like a fender replace it can't be that much of a knock down.

Don't want to get too far into it. If it ends up being nothing, I won't worry about it. If someone ever tries to pull certain car fax crap against me, I can probably handle it....ie: no suspension or frame damage...just a simple fender/bumper replace and repaint.

True...

I probably should have done the blue form. But this way it's clean cut n' dry clear who's at fault.

Ordered a little somethin' somthin' from some good friends on Friday.

Ordered a new rim from Doug at FR today too.

Dropping the car off on Monday to get started with the .... enhancements.

When I get back from the fest, the car should be all buttoned up. I swear...I HATE driving around with the front end all jacked up like this. Freaking irritating... And embarrassing...

The good thing is you have photos showing the damage done. So if it does show up on carfax as a accident, you have pictures of what damage was done. It is damage but not major. Most buyers would see that as a minor fender bender than a major accident.

Exactly. Don't think I'm going to give anyone a hard time over diminished value. I'll just let it go and if someone tried to give me a hard time over buying, show the pix and tell them either they let it go and deal with it or go find another car...lol

Yep. Nothing major like a supercharger. But it's something I thought of in the past that at the time, cost a bit much and I couldn't get.

Yeah I know how you feel, I had a very similar thing happen to my car and I had to drive it around like that for a couple of days. So embarrassing..

Car is in the shop as of Monday morning. New wheel and tire have been fixed (thanks, Glen)

Bumper was delivered Monday since it had to be replaced.

Now we go to the fest while the car is getting fixed!
