M tech 2 rear bumper

Three weeks ago I was on my school parking lot and got rear ended. Nothing too bad I need a new bumper, trunk frame is a little bent and the PDC no longer works. Anyhow, that next day, a Saturday someone with a trailer hitch backed into the front of my car and put a nice fist sized hole right next to my driver side fog light.. I ordered an mtech 2 front bumper, which has already been delivered to my house. I got a call from the girls insurance company yesterday. They gave me a shop to take my car to in order to get an estimate on the repairs. Since an oem bumper is almost double of a mtech 2 replica, is it possible to tell the collision center which bumper i want or will they buy an oem one and put it on without my say so?

Just get an estimate, and tell the insurance company that you have another shop in mind. They should send you a check for the amount of the estimate. Only bad part about it is if there is some un-seen damage that wasn't in the original estimate, that you ll have to cough up on your own.

They should send an Adjuster out to write it up and send you a check for the damage. If the shop finds more damage, they will contact them to pay for it. I was hit in a parking lot, was looked at a couple days later and received a check two days afterward. I had a prepainted MTech2 front bumper delivered, installed and a little left over.
