    I'm not sure he was accusing you of chopping, just that the photos just look a bit odd, which they do. There's hardly any damage to the crown victoria to the untrained eye. or maybe he was, in which case I present the ramming brace on the vic as supporting evidence.

    I'm assuming you got a rental from the, right? If it's not a premium, you should complain. When my loss occurred the put me in an econoshitbox for a week before i complained and they got me into a more comparable car w/out any hassle

    That's strictly dependent on his policy. Which may or may not define that he gets a comparable vehicle.

    My assumption was that he was pursuing through the other party and not his own policy given the clear liability. In that case, there is no contractual language and they owe for a comparable rental. But I do agree that if he is pursuing through his own he doesn't have as much leverage.

    Agreed. As I had assumed he went through his own carrier. The municipality claims handlers I've dealt with are very unorginized and lax to say the least. I would be genuiely shocked if they're handling this appropriately for him, and I know that if I ever had to deal with a city for a PD claim, I would just call my own carrier. Assuming of course they don't have a TP carrier, or IA handling this for them.

    Austin PD has been getting lots of bad press lately. I know this & I'm not even from there . . .

    that blows! If their is frame damage and the cost is too much to repair, the insurance may just take it away from you and give you what the car was worth. I would definitively buy it off your hands in that condition.i wouldnt mind lol

    It's kind of hard to tell from that angle, but there is a lot of damage to the "ramming brace." You can see that it is severely bent on the passenger side. Then it just scraped down the passenger side. No photoshop wizadry here.
