In Reply to: HELP! 323i rear bumped into the Prelude front. posted by Don on November 27, 1999 at 13:14:11:
Cut him a cheaque for the damages ($200) or less, and write on it "PAID IN FULL FOR CAR DAMAGES" and send it to him. If he cashes it, forget about any claim, cuz he cant do nothing after. Sometimes the appeal of money is great, and he'd rather not waste time hassling u when he can get his money quickly. Worked for me a while back.
: The raining day screwed me up when I bumped into the front
: bumper of a prelude in a parking lot. Very small bump,
: I only saw a black mark on my 323i rear and his front
: looks fine. But I'm afraid that this guy will try to
: hassle me after we exchanged information, since he saw
: me with a bimmer. I'm seeking for best legal procedures, if
: anyone can help me out. What is the maximum cost of fixing
: his bumper (<200)? I don't see any fix necessary since it looks FINE, I believe he just took a precaution (which I respect) but the guy wants to make money out of it. What if he requests for 400 or more damge? What should I do?
: Please help and advise.
: Thanks a million,
