Car damage estimate

So, I got an estimate from a very good shop in Durham: $1200. Did not expect it to be that high, but they found some other trouble spots I was not aware of.

I still have not heard from the other driver at all and I was unable to find her phone number. I typed it in that night when we exchanged numbers, but I must have fat fingered something and lost it. Regardless, she's had plenty of time to call me (and she promised she would). Therefore, I called Allstate and started a claim. They found her information and have scheduled me to see my car tomorrow afternoon.

As far as I'm concerned, she had an opportunity to skip the insurance and missed it. I have no sympathies for her. She's the one that caused the damage and is costing me my personal time to get it fixed.

I agree in that she's had her chance. Just go against her insurance. It sounds like it's going to be expensive anyway.

Yes... BMWs tend to run higher for body work. My minor accident that dented my front passenger quarter panel ending up costing about 3700. I have a 2000 323i.

BTW I just got a 07 530xi for a loaner. I didn't much care for it. The driver's cockpit felt cramped. It gave off the impression it was trying to be too much like a 7 series.

And as for the insurance, you followed protocol. Better to get the claim started now. Not to mention, as they fix the car, they will undoubtedly be some overruns.
