Is it bad to actually want that to happen? I have a few scratches & door dings that I would love for someone else's insurance to pay for...:rotfl:

Seriously though, glad it wasn't too bad, and nobody was injured :grouphug:

hahaha well sadly enough it had a few door dings and some nicks from rocks on the front fender as well. It does suck but atleast it still drives fine, now the waiting game happens.

How do you change lanes into somebody especially with a vehicle as large as ours? I could see if it was a semi and you were in his blind spot, but a mustang? Sounds like somebody needs to go to driving school! :hissy:

But like you said at least it wasnt your fault. Sorry it happened though.

so brought the TB into the shop today and got called 2 hours later, $3600 worth of damage, and its apart and they ordered new parts and i should have it back by the weekend yay. Also got a "decent" rental, decent because my last rental from enterprise was a pt cruiser. Got a Heep Wrangler which i might add is pretty fun to drive and the seats feel better then the TB's :(.

its a little hard to tell the damage...
but from the looks in the pics--- and $3600...
I would....
keep the $3600.
Remove the white stuff--- and maybe find a replacement trim piece- (cheaply) or remove the one on the pass door.
Then simply try to conceal the damage as much as possible- touch up paint.. and call it a day...
Save the $3600 to pay down your loan- or for future use...

Glad nobody was hurt.

3600 for two doors and a fender...holy crap...thats a body shop you only go to if insurance is paying the bill...it didnt even break the mirror...could get the whole thing painted around here for that money.

i would also keep the 3600 check and try finding a yard that has those parts in your color and bolt them on yourself...take the rest and buy some wheels or something

good luck with it
