I disagree. The white diamond paint can be matched. When I leased a new 97 Buick Riveria way back when, it was white diamond. When I went to pick it up from the dealer I noticed the whole bottom of the pass door had a pinkish tint to it. I thougt it was just a reflection from standing water on the ground. Upon further inspection it was the paint on the door. It came from the factory that was. Needless to say they had to repaint the entire door. They matched the white diamond paint exactly.

I am really sorry you got hit, that sucks!!!! Some people should not be allowed to drive Anyway...I think you should get the woman to pay up, hitting your car is one thing, but not saying sorry....now that is a whole different story!!!!!

Take her for whatever you can get.
I worked in a parking lot when I was 18, and I never so much as put a scratch in a car.
If you can't drive, expect to pay up.

I haven';t the faintest if the paint can be matched, never tried to match any paint. But it would be a nice way to get a repaint if ya could swing it...

BTW, I've driven every work day in and out of peoples driveways, down main roads, putting 170K miles on my work truck in six months. The only thing I have hit was a WalMart bag. Hitting something is bad enough, But not being sorry is worse.

Factory paint can be hard to match. When they switch colors they just give the sprayer a cursory cleaning, it takes a bit of talent to blend paint to match. And I've heard that white colors are the hardest to do.

wow.. off the top of my head thats roughly 1000miles a day... depending on how many days you worked... Thats amazing... 8-12hour days.. lets say 10hour days... so 100miles pre hour... no accidents at that rate of travel going down those driveways... Simply amazing...

The scratch is right on a crease, so it will be easier to address and correct. I'll take care of it. Now that I will be getting the proper tri coat colors its going to be done correctly. She will however pay up the $350.

It happened at a local grocery store, private property, most insurance companies wont touch that mess with a 10 ft pole.

Either way....its minor compared to what I just heard....
