First off I want to say I hate Insurance companies. I understand they have a job to do, but 2.5years really 2.5 years!!!!!! Long story short because I could rant on about this all day. So Back in 2010 I was rear ended at a red light while going to lunch in A4 by a " Foreigner " as I got his information, notice a big smile on his face while his wife is was in the car smiling also. About 9months went by with me calling this insurance company consistanly they finally sent someone out to give me an estimate. An estimate of $300 with 3hours of labor to have a shop take the bumper off, sand and paint.
I work at a dealership so I had the body shop take a look at it. Instantly the manager said," WTF three hours??, your bumper needs to taken off, preped ,completely sanded all the way down. The amount that it will cost your better of buying a new bumper." After being told that I don't see where this insurance company got that from. So after all of that once again I didn't hear from that insurance company for yet a couple months again. I gave them a phone call to see what was going on an I was told that they weren't going to do anything, cut me a check etc because they needed to talk to their insurer to get his side of the story. " Thinking to myself....... Foreigner...... Accident.......Insurance Company YEAH his a** went back home."
Dealing with all of this caused me to drive down to H2O 2011 with a pealing/Cracked up bumper. Luckily I found a bandade sticker at one of the vendors to slap on it while i was down there lol.
Anyways Its October 2012 and this past Tuesday I FINALLY GOT THE CALL that the guys insurance company is going to Pay to have it fixed the right way, Hopefully. Here's my Issue though since had to wait so damn long I want more to be done. I WANT MY WHOLE CAR REPAINTED. It prob wont happen but thats what I want done. Think about it, its been 2 plus years since this accident. My car is 8years with its original paint when I get my bumper done its going to have that fresh coat of paint and clear that when im driving down the road people will know that it was painted compared to the rest of the car. What do you guys think should I do??? I mean should I even try get them to do that or leave it alone. I know there are some people that feel the same way about this type of stuff as I do. Also If anyone knows/Has a B6 S4 an wants to sell their Rear Bumper And Front Bumper let me know Please Thanks
