You always have to be careful when you are pulling out...

Yeah, but when you hit something you usally stop and don?t "pull through", rite? That does not look like she?s stopped ...

Have you seen the Idiots+Cars thread? Have you seen what people are capable of? Doing your nails, eye shaddow, and checking your texts while pulling out of a parking spot in the morning will result in situations such as this.

Woot woot!

$50.18 later, it looks better than it did before she hit me.

I shouldn't have paniced as much as I did at first.

Is this legitimately the first time that "That'll buff out" actually was right?

Are you selling this beauty once your "Green Monster" comes in?

Yeah, trading it.

Why was it so cheap? :blink: How was it fixed?

$50???? How did you manage to do that?

Even so...$50? That's less than an hour of labor.

It was an hour and a half worth of labor at a local shop. Just buffing it out.

Was it even dented? Just scratched?

I got lucky. No dents at all. The scratches were all tiny too under the residue of her paint. Just rubbed it out with a hard rubbing compound.

The girl got off a lot worse than I did. Needs a whole new front bumper and foglamps on her Acura RDX.

Foglamps? How did she damage the foglamps? She must fix foglamps. Foglamps important. ;)

We can give this thread a Viking funeral now.
