If > anyone can answer this question please respond. Thank You. Ironic... I had an almost identical accident... but mine was hit in a parking lot while I wasn't there... same results though. The insurance guy's quote said about $1500 of damage... the body shop says $1700. Won't really know for sure until the body shop pulls it apart. Didn't even take it near a dealer... I'm scared of the number of digits I might find on the quote ;) Gavin
