Well, I was in a minor fender bender the other day. Pulling out of work and a guy in a truck nearly ripped off the rear bumper cover on my car. He was heading the wrong way going out a one way.
Esurance has begun the claims process and I will take it in this weekend to get looked at and to get an estimate.
Sucks, I hate the idea of driving the car after it's been hit, I am VERY picky about body repairs, I spent 4 years in auto body back in high school and developed a real eye for body work and mismatched paint.
I will probably look at trading the car in shortly after the repairs are complete.
I will probably go with a slightly used Subaru STI hatch '08 or newer.
