sorry about what happened to you and the car.

i was in my previous car when some one rear ended me on 210 fwy two years ago, and the guy just took off. I couldn't get him because i was already pulled over to the side of the road, and where he had hit me there was another accident right after we moved the car. Good thing was that when i saw him coming up behind me tire screeching, i decide to let loose of the brake since i have leave some space between the car in front of me and my car. The end result was I only need to replace the rear bumper and the two reflector for $700 bucks.

hope you will get your car back soon

bodyshop told me the airbags didn't arrive...
so i have to wait a little longer

but i stopped by the shop... and it doesn't look like they would have had my car ready anyway...
and i think i should have had my moldings painted as well... since they had to replace my door and the moldings are off in these pictures...

final total came out to be a little under $11,400 ...
the shop broke the mounting tab on my left xenon so i got a brand new one installed
=p

so car seems fine (except for my door's weather stripping isn't 100% sealed ... i hear excess wind noise on the freeway and i can see that it doesn't sit flush against the body.. so i'll be taking it in next week to fix)

but now my back's really acting up... can't even enjoy a nice drive in my car because my back hurts so much

i wanna go find that bastard and kick his a$$ .. maybe that'll make me feel better

You finally got your car back. It looks great!

Sorry to hear it isn't running perfectly though, maybe it can still be fixed.

So, what happened to the guy, they let him out, really?
