In Reply to: god damn deer got in my way - need advice bad posted by Alex on December 22, 2000 at 18:48:00:
Last night I sent a deer to St Peter. Unfortunately, my insurance jobbed me saying I don't have the proper coverage. Preliminary estimate at a quality body shop came to $7k ($5k w/o the air bag - christ those things are expensive). This seemed a little stiff to me - it appears that only the hood left headlight assembly and left front fender are damaged. They want $865 for the bumper cover/spoiler alone.
I have the money to fix it, but I would have to ultimately sell it to recover my losses. Should I try to sell it now as is or get it fixed and sell it. The car was in great condition otherwise with just over a 100k mi on it... Any advice is greatly appreciated.
