On Jan. 25 I rear-ended a '95 Bonneville with my Beretta. I was going 40MPH and skidded about 12ft before impact. Now I've got this estimate that seems to be a major rip, because i asked to settle privatelly.
The estimate included Bumper cover, paint, clear coat, impact absorbers, and get this.... A REAR FILLER PANEL. Now with my knowledge of accidents it takes a lot harder hit to cause a bumper move big enough to destroy a filler panel. I would not consider this a major accident of that degree... in fact it appeared on the scene that the damage was only superficial. I can stretch to the impact absorbers, but a FILLER PANEL.
I know this may seem petty, but they want me to pay labor and parts on this filler panel. How likely is it that this estimate is accurate? More importantly does a filler panel cost $80?
Please help me, I can't cover this with less then 2 paychecks. The total was $502.27. I thought I'd consult you folks that know all about these cars. Help a fellow GM owner out.... PLEASE.
Any input is appreciated,
Jason (1990 Beretta Indy3.1L[not paid for yet])
