Unhappy How much is this gonna cost me?

So the other night i was backing out of my friends driveway and a huge telephone poll jumped out in front of me. I ended up messing up my right quarter and was wondering if you fine gentlemen could help me out and tell me how much its gonna cost me to get this fixed.

Well, judging by the fact that it's diffinetly going to need a repaint, and when my car got keyed, it costed 500 bucks for the panel to be repainted...well, you get the idea...lots and lots and lots and lots of $$$$$

Ghetto estimate:
Taillight: $200
Bumper repaint (if no major damage) $300
1/4 panel: $200 for brand new one if applicable
1/4 panel repair/repaint $500

Total should be right at $1000

I hate it when those damn telephone polls do that. My friend got into an arguement a few years ago with a light poll and the same thing happend to him. It cost him around $2,500. I told him to take the poll to court and make it pay for the damages. But he was afraid the other light polls around his house would get him at night.

You're suggesting that someone could cut out the old quater, weld in a new one and paint it for $500? This job requires a bit of pulling and some filler, no need to replace that panel.

Should be able to find the tail light used for $80 or so.

Telephone pole attack my mom's Explorer as well couple of years ago.

$1,600 sounds about right. Dealer's charge a lot more than privately owned shops. I would call different paint and body shops.

Try the dingking. They might be able to pull that out. It might not be perfect but do that first and then bring it to a body shop. Maybe it'll lower the price. And for the price of the taillights just the get JDM ones.
Or even better the NEW altezzas by TYC. You know the ones that will be featured in "too 2 fast too 2 furious."

I would definately not go to a Subie dealer for this. Have them recommend a body shop to you or do some legwork. If they're the best thing since sliced bread, that's one thing.
