So this is $9500 worth of damage huh?

Thankfully I had uninsured motorist but can you believe this is $9500? Just the muffler was $1395 for one of them. No frame damage. I was thinking maybe $3K. Man, was I wrong.

Wow... Seems high to me as well. I would have guessed a lower total.

Take the money and run! Find a good shop you can haggle with. Then buy a supercharger kit!

Body work isn't cheap. IOM is a pearlescent paint, too, so that's extra time/money.

1 muffler was how much? You can by a Stainless steel catback for less.

When you said Uninsured driver I kinda figured you lived in Texas, That is a lot of $$$$$ for the damage

Dealership wanted to replace my exhaust (after headers back) because I had a break right before my right muffler, all for the low low cost of 1200 dollars. I laughed at them and said I would rather spend that money on something better than the stock exhaust. So if you are running off of dealership prices, ya I could see the amount.

Wow. I took out my entire passenger side scuffing a guard rail and it was $5500 out the door, new uniside, fender, emblems, marker lights and repainting part of the front and rear bumpers.

Inferno Orange Metallic WA502Q is not a tri coat in any of the seven variants that I found in our mixing system. We use PPG Deltron 2000 DBC1. While there are limited use toners It's still mixed, and estimates are calculated as a base coat clear coat. At least in out estimates.

take the "muffler money" and put it towards an ATAK catback, maybe even try for LT headers if you can!

Is it really???

Man that's CRAZY, I never knew that....

Pearlescent paint jobs are ridiculously expensive, just to have my uncle's Chevelle's hood painted pearlescent white, was like $3,000 ... that's incredible.

I know on my window sticker, the IOM paint was an upcharge. Only $350 but still an up charge. The insurance co paid the dealership directly so I had no way to save the money for an exhaust system, but that was exactly what I was thinking.

Bumper and Diffuser for a 2014 was $1500 when I was rear ended, you might have had the real number bar bent. Yours is far worse than mine. So with out seeing what they put on the estimate and the repairs I can't comment.

Can't you talk to the dealership and tell them instead of stock exhaust I bought this for example?

My wife was driving her '13 Ford Fusion (ya i know) - at a stoplight this guy floored it and hit her from a few feet away and that was 11k worth of damage... so far. So I would say that looks like MORE than 9k since you have much more damage than we do.

Edit - fixed less to more lol

sure, most body shops will do aftermarket instead of OEM if thats what you want. You could also have the insurance co cut you a check and spend it however you like.

That car probably needs a rear body panel. Plastic bumpers usually spring back into shape and can hide the damage underneath.

Take it to the best shop you can find, don't take it to some hack shop that will haggle. Ask for an appearance allowance for the exhaust or just ask them to use that money to put an aftermarket system on. Good luck.

I'm pretty sure at this point that body shops give estimates based on the value of the car and not the actual damage LOL.

For the record, I said take it to a GOOD shop that will haggle with you. That's the secret to our shops success, we do a great job, and save the customer money. I hear commercials for body shops that state "we're more than a name, we're a promise ", at our shop (independent) we're more than a promise, we're a reputation. It pays to shop around, you never know when you will need quality work done in the future.

And don't forget to get the diminished value that your car has taken from being in an accident. Typically it's about 1000-1500 $ your insurance company will pursue the uninsured motorist

That muffler price is just stupid. Get a better exhaust system for it and keep the extra.
