Its illegal to drive without insurance in Canada...so we can avoid these court hassles. Liability, fire and theft is a minimum, collision is optional

Sorry to hear the bad news Fuddy...any chance something was broken or cracked on the back already that will get fixed

I think it'* illegal here too (or at least in Michigan), but this still doesn't stop people from failing to purcase at least PL/PD.

As much as we gripe about insurance, its one of those things you HAVE to have on a car...I couldn't imagine accidently hurting someone and not having insurance, my life finanacially would be ruined....

I'll pay the 272 a month until I'm 25 and get my full G license (test March 4)...I think if you are driving without insurance, you should not be allowed to drive for 2 or 3 years.

But I'm just venting now

Yes, it'* illegal. He got a ticket for not having insurance. But the trunk and bumper was still excellent, so he didn't do me a favor...

Actually, last I checked you don't have to have insurance in NH...but if you get into an accident without it you're pretty much screwed...and they might have changed it by now and I didn't notice because I have insurance anyway. It'* only about $75 per month...

Well, car is repaired. It all looks good.

However, the bottom of the bumper cover is a bit flimsy, sort of wobbly, right under the license plate. Is this normal for the cars with dual exhaust?

Fuddy, there are some hidden clips under there. They pop loose easily in an impact, and may not have been present when the shop inspected it the first time. I had 3 pop out when I got rear-ended at work a couple months ago. I still havent' fixed the damage to the rear cover. I had to replace both lisence lights, and the lisence plate cover.

I still have a small split in the rear bumper cover, that I intend to fix and re-paint when the weather turns for the better. Glad you got her back.
