Get a used complete door and a used fender, changing the A pillar might get a little costly as the interior (dash, carpet and seat) has to be removed along with the wire harness. Not a hard job but may end up costing if you can't do the removals yourself.

Then replace it to black while you're at it. I personally would just move on.

I've never seen bigger v*ginas about accident's than on this forum. Any reputable shop can bring that back to life with a frame puller, depending how deep the damage goes.

It really isn't bad and I hope you can get her back on the road!

It must be that you've made it a mission to join multiple car forums, peruse threads related to accidents, grade them all on how sensitive they seem to be concerning the whole ordeal and finally make it a point to let said forum members know if they've "won the prize" in your opinion.

Seems like a time consuming deal. Find another hobby.

A quick update. I still have not had an offer from SF.

I visited the repair shop Thurs and looked the car over. The damage is pretty bad although it is repairable of course. The obvious damages include the passenger side door, both fenders, floor pan (pushed in 1 to 1.5"), dashboard, and possibly the lower firewall. But as the shop pointed out, there will be the unknowns to deal with.

I expect to hear from the adjuster early next week and will update you on the offer and the buyback cost.

Thanks to all.
Jay

Sorry man sucks to see this. It's seriously like everyone is out to get us all. So many nice examples get smashed on the road for some reason. Fortunately enough of these cars were produced to where I'm sure if you're patient you'll be able to find a nice successor for your car

Default Re: One less LSB on the road. My M3 was t-boned on the 20th just 1 day short of its b

Today I spoke with the insurance claims adjuster and was offered $12.2k plus tax for my car and a buy-back of $3.5k. And also found out the actual repair est. is $11776.

That seems pretty fair considering the mileage is 181xxx. (2/2002)

I'll meet with my repair shop friend tomorrow and decide what to do...keep and repair or let her go. ?

Any thoughts or comments?
Thanks,
J.

Well considering he was hit by some dumbass in Ford Contour (?) who thought he pushed the ****ing brake and pushed the gas, I'd be pissed to and to discount that is lame. I'd be pissed to all hell if that happened to me. In fact, some dumbass old man hit me in my new Camry and I was livid, all because he's a shitty driver.

So--I consider myself a vagina then about my car that i work to keep in great shape .

The person that hit me was a teenage guy and has learned the hard way what can happen when driving with those athletic oversize slippers (flip-flops the same). And sure I was upset but you know at almost 74yo I have mellowed and donít have fits of rage like I might when younger. I think others on the forum my age or near will understand that.

Anyway I've decided to accept the insurance offer because I don't want to invest over $12k in repairs of what is obvious only for other hidden damages possibly being discovered at additional expense. That would be foolish.

Thanks for all of the kind comments and well wishes. It's greatly appreciated.
J.
