well to start it off when i go to work this morning at 5am i get pulled over on northern blvd by a cop.. he said that i did not come to a complete stop at the stop sign and switch 2 lanes without signalling.. np i hand him my license registration and insurance and leave my PBA card out in plain view so he can see it... i told him i was goiing to work and that i was late... he goes back into his car and comes back 10 mins later hands me my stuff and says sorry for pulling you over, i know you late for work but be careful its wet out... no ticket no nothing.. :bowdown: :bowdown: i was happy and felt i was very lucky... well i get to the block of my job and make a right turn following a bmw x5, she pulls wide to the left so i stick to my right and gas up... as my driver side window clears her front bumper i see her wheel turning, i honk she flutters and BAM hits my rear fender... the pics dont look too serious but its pretty bad.. i was mad as hell that she had absolutely no damages except for MY black paint on her white bumper, well i look over the situation and come to a conclusion that it was technically my fault because it was not a 2 lane road just a extra wide 1 laner and since it was 5Am no cars were parked on the street so it was extra wide.. i tell her whatever ill fix the damages lets just go on our way... in broken english she says no.. report.. police. her daughter comes 15 min later.. calls the cops.. so now im extra pissed cuz i know the cops will take forever.. well an hour and a half later they show... 1 cop takes my story and basucally came to the same conclusion as me that it was a 50-50 fault.. and since i only have liabilty its not worth claiming, lady stilll wants a report but they somehow persuade not to file claims. sorry for the long version guys... just wanted to vent... ::sigh:: the meet is coming up soon too and now this... dunno if i can get it fixed by may 18.. if not ill prob be out of the meet... anyone wanna takes guesses at the price of damage?

just scratches? or are there dents? .. prolly 300-500$ from a body shop.

considering i got quoted 150$ for the back of the trunk lid..

if there is body work to be done.. .. damn man..

Yea, he has bondo on it... I think you shouldnt pay more than 200 for something like that. 100 in labor and 100 in paint. Just take it to a shop and let them do their magic
