I disagree with that, it wasnt a matter of being responsable (atleast not the accedent it'* self) I live in the same area as Jim and i know how windy it was that day, and you cant always predict and never control a big gust of wind.
As for her being a B**** afterward thats a bit of a different story, I can see her side of it, most people have know idea how much just a little bit of damage can cost and im sure it got her of gard when see saw the first price not knowing that it would end up being the lowest price. Now that doesnt excuse the way she acted but i dont think that it is a reason to try to screw her over (duffer26 )

As for the damage its self, from what i have seen at work (i work at a body shop for those that dont know) and from what you describe. the dent may be able to remove without any filling or sanding if the body shop has a paintless dent repair guy come in and do it (ding king or dent tech are two in our area i beleave) I dont remember what one we use at our shop and as for the scratched they almore always are only paint transfer that look like scratches but are not, and can be remover with good thinners, and polished out. But as for the mirror well no amount of polishing will fix that ...just some ideas as to get the prices down
not trying to screw any one over at all had it happen last summer to the 93 guy puled out of a parking spot and plow the rite rear quarter and all i had was his address and insurance stuff and his work seings how it turned uot to be where it hapened got my quote and tryed to take it to him and not at that addeess and i called his insurance and he was droped by them due to not paying so i went and did what i had to do to get my car rite no screwing over at all that way i could get his address from the courts for my insurance so they could deal with him that is all i had to do with it so i dont know why you think i was trying to screw some one over

It'll be more than $5 a month. FAR more, in this neck of the woods. Online quote of $9500 a year for me if on my own policy, just liability, and leisure use only? Welcome to Ontario. Not the most accurate way to get a quote - but the real numbers, when that high, aren't too far off. Buddy of mine paid $5k+ a year for insurance and he lives OUTSIDE of town, where it'* a lot cheaper. He had a '86 beater Accord...

Sad thing is, it wouldn't surprise me when an Ontarian gets their insurance canceled for something like a parking lot incident.

Horrible to hear about this Jim, do what you gotta do and git 'er done.

I got quite the chucke about the big *****.. (prolly true)

Honestly Jim, you've taken the high road and been great about it. May be time to explain the option of pay or it'* taken care of through insurance. The email etc prove she was there and feel responsible.

Heh...well she called last night. I told her I would speak to my guys at Fix.

We got it down to $550. I told her $550 final cash offer or give me your insurance information.

Now we wait.

Jim, I applaud your patience and willingness to work with her. Choosing to be nice sometimes means you will have to pay the price yourself. I hope this time is not one of them.

I do, however, think that you should always get the insurance information up front. My experiences taught me that. Some expensive lessons.

Good luck!

JW, I'm sure your gf appericated that u held back because she has double majors (boobies),

When I read your story, I got a vision of what you should have done.

NOW, that will teach her.

Good luck and be strong.

I guess I believe in karma. Do good to others and fate will reward you, despite the difficulties and transgressions that others may inflict on you.

However she has a nice reminder of what shes done. There is a nice black paint transfer and dent near her door handle. Each time she opens that door....she'll see it

Good luck with that.

Story doesn't sound too far from when a lady dented me in the parking lot a month ago and tried to pin the blame on me and not give her insurance.

Oh man, sorry to hear about your car. It'* been a bad week for side mirrors (just had a friend who got his taken off in a parking lot). Hopefully, she'll realize you've saved her a large headache and pay up at least the lowest quote you gave her. I think, despite your current frustration (which is well justified-I promise I'm not going to give you the "move on and deal" line :P ), you will have done a better thing for both of you if she does what is her right.

I agree with a comment along the way that really this is just about righting a wrong, not so much teaching her a lesson. IF the story went the way she said, it was a accident which may have been the result of her being slightly careless, but not doing anything overtly malicious or reckless. She shouldn't have to pay for something like this (through insurance) for a long time, but again, assuming the fact she just antes up and pays what is due.
