      correct

      I think you are right. The insurance company is at the point of no return it seems so they're probably just going to keep going with fixing the issues. The adjuster I have been working with is a...

      quote

      To be honest I'm starting to think the dealer might be just throwing parts at the car to make money while the insurance company is still on the hook paying. I could see something shorting out a...

      Invisibilewave, Your Phaeton has a wing on it?

      respray

      I would take it somewhere else. Also, if you are painting that many panels you might as well just respray the entire car. It will be a bit more expensive but the results will be well worth it
