My reasoning is because I was just forced to wait 3+ months for a supposed "double backordered" active suspension computer part (the reader or something, the guys at the desk were very secretive about this part for whatever reason)... so after waiting a ridiculously long time they finally get the part in and I get into the shop. I've been riding on the broken part for so long they decided they wanted to replace my front strut as well. I get the car back and it rode beautifully, 500 times better than before. (Before it constantly felt like it was in sport or higher and just rode incredibly rough) <p>So I have the car for a day and I'm extremely happy. Last night I'm taking a left pulling into a local eating/drinking establishment in Amherst right by UMass and there's a girl taking a left out of the exit. I have the right of way and my blinker is on, so I go ahead and pull in. I'm almost completely into the parking area and *Bam* the car slams into the back left side of my car. I thought the girl was going to take off, which she luckily didn't, but after pulling over and looking at it she somehow managed to only get bumper (thank god) with her big ol' white Blazer. I was furious, but didn't yell or anything because I knew it wouldn't solve any problems. Her only explanation/excuse was "Wow, I really misjudged that one...." <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I didn't call the police since in the grand scheme of accidents it wasn't a bad one. She didn't even check her car and knew it was her fault. I got all of her information and I'm calling to get an estimate today. My guess, a new bumper (it's pushed up and I can't open my trunk because it's like in front of it). The girl wants to just send me money if she can rather than go through insurance. We'll see...<p>If I ever manage to get my camera working I'll take some pictures... just wanted to rant.<p>Thanks,<br>Mike

Re: Afraid my personal R curse is beginning... (titaniumR)

Sorry to hear that the curse rolls on. If it is indeed only bumper, that is a good thing since they come prepainted.

Thanks bb... unfortunately I didn't do it at the time, so kind of late now... I just know that in MA I believe the cops won't even come to the scene if it could be under $500 or in a parking lot (which this was) I could be wrong, but that's what I was thinking at the time... thank you though, it is appreciated for the future<p><br>*update* just got the estimate a little under a grand... new bumper cover and new mouldings + labor ... now i just have to see if that girl wants to pony over the dough herself or go through insurance<br><BR><BR>

If she does, you might get stuck with the bill since there is no proof either way.<br>

You may need a new foam backer or whatever is behind the bumper cover, if the cover was deformed enough to prevent the trunk from opening. Good luck.

I had my curse but just about all my problems came from my retarded service manager.... If I could have the sales people at the dealer and service of the other dealer in town all would be good.... wait, I CAN!<p>too bad she was not hot. Then you could yell at a hot chick and she would have to sit there and take it! That would make up for all the weman who are mean to insecure bar hopping guys out there.
