Was the adjuster interested in the least about the video?

Complete paint job for $2800..... LOL

Get another estimate but don't show the body shop the adjusters estimate, see what happens.

Nope. He just told me that whenever they get more information to let Geico know right away.

just got off the phone with Geico. It doesn't matter if the guy keyed Kaylee the next day. Because I filed two separate claims I have to pay two deductibles

One word GEICO I had them too bro they suck! I had to file a claim on my car, and my wife's car when I tapped her car backing out of my driveway i scratched both mine and her bumper, we're on the same policy and GEICO made me pay two deductibles, they did the same thing when we had a hail storm.

My advice is dump them after this claim, check out Allstate, I used to not like them but they beat Geico's price for the same coverage.

Real sorry about your car bro, she'll be back in Tip Top shape before you know it.

Get your own estimates (at least 2) from excellent shops. Don't sign or agree to anything with Geico until you compare the ins. co. estimate with those.

Geico sucks @SS. No offense...

I have USAA and love them. Frankly, you get what you pay for. I've had to deal with Geico when their insured hit me. Talk about pulling teeth! I waited forever to get my settlement check. They were such a pain in the ass...

I can probably get you that black chrome bowtie, you know.

Damn sorry to hear about all this... A bunch of us saw the pics this weekend at the track and we all wanted to come up there and kick some @ss for you.

Hopefully the repair shop will be able to have the Ins. Claim value raised if they can't fix it for that. Be sure and use one that is approved by Geico and hopefully they get it done right. The double deductible is just total BS... I love my USAA and so do the repair shops.

Good luck catching those bastards... I'm sure you've lost a whole lot of sleep lately.

Yea, mine were from 6liter. Just don't know if he's still doing the black chrome stuffs, his website is down currently. Though they might just be updating it

I would LOVE to have USAA. The girlfriend has it, so if I play my cards right I might get to mooch off of her USAA at some point down the road. I wouldn't say I've lost sleep (weird dreams though - but I don't think that's related). It's more I'm just frustrated all the time, I want to say its angst. But just not like in a preteen sexual frustration kind of way.


Also, I returned the SMARTY camera. It was nice and it worked well but it was crap once it got dark out. So that's a negative. Picked up a cheapo IR camera off of Amazon for like $40, and because it was directly from Amazon I have 30 days to return it. I sent a PM to thespymaster explaining what I'm looking for in a system, hopefully he gets back to me soon.

Basically I want Kaylee completely covered: front, sides, rear at all times day or night. Which means I'll probably need either night vision or IR cameras (don't have a preference). Then I also want a DVR or hard drive that can record like a week at a time and automatically overwrites the oldest data when it gets full.

Am I being too picky and/or paranoid?

Lots of these products out there for cars, so, you are not that paranoid.

Cameras with good night vision cost, though.

I realize that - but at this point I'm about $4,000+ in hole for vandalism damage. I can sacrifice my next mod for better cameras. Do you know of any setups?
