Default I just got rear-ended...

I just got rear-ended on Arapahoe. I am going to need a new bumper . There are creases in the bumber, and it doesn't seem to fit quite right on the sides any more. F*#$@&% SUVs

If you can recommend a good body shop, I would certainly give them a call. Otherwise I will go to Perfection Unlimited in old Aurora, they fixed my previous car after another raised hick-mobile crushed the front fender in a parking lot. It looked as good as new.

How much will a new bumper cost? The Sheriff wouldn't even fill out a report, because she felt that the damage was under $1000. I am not in the habit of arguing with law-enforcement, so I din't press the issue.

Can you believe that the other driver didn't even get a ticket. Here's what I have to give the Centennial Sheriff: :monkey: :monkey: :monkey: And one more for good measure :monkey:

There was a huge SUV-either an Excursion or a Suburban making a left in a turn lane. The huge SUV was sticking out about 2 feet into the westbound lane. I didn't go around because of heavy traffic, I stopped in the left hand lane. I sat there for a few seconds waiting for the land barge to turn. Then the other SUV runs into the back of me.

If the accident would have been the other way around (me hitting him) I am sure I would have recieved a careless driving ticket.

:monkey: the police.
:monkey: SUVs.

Default Bad day

Hmmm sounds like a bad day.
Sorry to hear about that. I had a dodge pickup back into me in a parking lot, hit right on the tail light housing and pushed the tail light and the fender back about an inch or so.

The insurance payout was about $2000.
As I recal the rear bumper is in the high $300 dollar range, a rear tail light if you need one of those is $185 or so. The you just about double parts cost for labor and any repaint.

Is that why the traffic was so bad today? Probably the work on Broadway. Anyway, sorry to here that. I live on Arapaho and I hate that road!!!! Good luck finding a good body shop. Let us know where you go and how it works out.

Sorry to hear this dude, I was rear ended myself back in May on the I-25 near the 225 exit. Does your damage look as bad as mine did?



I was hit by a Suzuki Vitara, and the damage cost me ~$4000 to repair -- luckily, the girl that hit me was insured, so I got her insurance to pay out.

As for a good body shop, I went to one called Motorsport Concepts. I was referred there by WRXNate on this board -- they do good work! Here's their link

Here's my car after it was fixed!



Regards,

Kelvin

Wow! My damage isn't as bad as yours was. Your car looks great now, I am going to check out Motorsport concepts as soon as I hear from the other guy's insurance.

Thanks for posting the pics. How long did it take to make the repairs?

Thanks Kelvin,


Dennis

That truly sucks man. I hope you get her in prestine condition again soon. I have had much success with Motorsports Concepts as well and highly recommend them. Hope the boost controller is working out for you.

I am glad that you recommend them too WRXThis. You have a very nice looking ride.

The boost controller is working out fine, I just hooked up my chip and ABC yesterday.

Any more problems with knock after putting your chip back in? Sucks about your car, but now you can get those altezzas you always wanted.

Hi Dennis:

My repairs took about 2 weeks, due to the extensive damage that there was -- they had to put it up on the rack at the frame shop to straighten it back out...

What took the most amount of time aside from the actual repair was re-acquiring all the parts -- I have the Ver. 5/6 bumper skin, and had to get that reordered from Shawn@Challenger Deep -- luckily he had it in stock, so I got that pretty quickly. I also opted for the aluminum trunk lid, which took a little longer, since the first one they shipped in was damaged...

All in all, I think I had to drive around with the damage for about a month before I got all the parts I needed for the repair.

I'm still waiting on that darn Ver. 6 wing though...

Good luck on your search!

Regards,

Kelvin

wrxlvr- No problems with the chip as of yet. The detonation seems to be under control, maybe my pre-cat had gone bad. Maybe the det. was caused by too high of a thermal load, I was not running an up-pipe before. Who knows. I'll take it to the track tomorrow and beat on it a little and I'll let you know my results. I don't think the damage is bad enough to keep me out of the races.

And luckily, it doesn't seem like there is any damage to my taillights. (Not that I would have considered altezzas. Morette rears would be more unique, still ugly, but unique.)

About a week after I bought my WRX (last spring), some dork in the parking lot of Lutheran Hospital backed into the passengers' rear of my wagon.

It creased the rear panel near the gas cap and the rear bumper cover. Total cost to repair was ~$1400 including paint. It took TWO WEEKS to repair, mostly because the bodyshop's glass guys dropped the rear quarter glass and had to wait for a new one. It ended looking pretty good, though.

BTW, I just got my windows tinted -- good tint looks SWEET on a black wagon. Now all I need is black rims for the complete "Darth Vader" effect.
