Bad luck this evening!

Bad luck this evening!

I was driving by some parking places, when suddenly a car pulls out in reverse (not seeing me) and hit me in the right flank.
He said he was guilty, no argue about that! But stil, my little car is broken.
Saterday i wil go to the dealer and see how much damage it is.

Here's some pics







Wil post an update when its fixed!

did you get his information , etc? i would also have gotten a police report, or if to settle between two parties privately, an incident report.

hope everything goes well

i was at the mall one time, and a lady slammed the door on my rear door - causing a little dent. got 100 bucks, privately

welll, the 100 bucks is gone and i still haven't fixed it yet ..heh

Why dealer? They are just going to sublet the work. I remember the last shop i was at was next to the ford dealer. They would sublet all thier smog and saftey checks to our shop. And then just triple the price to the consumer.

Just take your car to a reputable body shop.

thanks for all the suport!

I didn't go to the dealer but to a (how do you say it) car damage company??!!
total cost are about 2500 euro's (about 3500dollar). the insurence of the man who hit me pais everything.

the door is too damage so i will get a new door!, and the whole right side wel painted over!


The rims are not toyota oem! just the logo on it! it are the Dezent Dark V 16"
Black inside and mat crome outside!



I now have a rental car, a nissan micra :=)

I will post pics next week when its fixed!
