    Depending on who your insurance carrier is, they may tell you to go ahead and put it in the shop and they will settle the difference with the repair shop.

    This one happened in 209, or 2010. I forget which. But it cost my insurance company around $9,000.



    And it cost the auto body shop $700... That's right, I bought my own bumper, fog light(s) and headlight. I saved so much money that the shop wrote me a check. :-)
