$3233.

All but $100 is covered under insurance...the $100 is the deductible I pay.

They're replacing the bumper cover, the headlight, the airbags, and fixing the fender. Also replacing the seatbelt apparently, but I'm not sure why...it worked the same after the hit as it did before the hit. I've always noticed it had some slack in it; never really tensioned properly. Nice of them to fix it now, but if I could get it covered under warranty, why should anyone, even insurance, have to pick up the tab. I'm gonna call them about that tomorrow.

I guess work is underway too, the car was off the lot today, and I was told a tech was assigned to it. So that's pretty good.

hope things get back to normal. Good luck with the insurance company. I see higher premiums in your future

Lot higher than I expected. I was figuring $1200-$1500. Shows you what I know!

I think it's pretty standard to replace the seatbelt assembly after an accident just to be sure you're ok next time.

You'll be back in the saddle in no time!

That sounds about what I was expecting from the damages in the pictures.

Looks like it's gonna be upped a little bit...the shop called the adjuster back out today; upon removal of the bumper cover, they found some more damage. About $600 worth. So guess the total is up to $3800 now.

Dang.
