it's a sad day. i was on the freeway yesterday and a semi in front of me lost it's retread. it went underneath the ford explorer in front of me and came flying out behind it and right into my front end and then underneath my car. i pulled over and checked for damage and saw the bumper hanging out beyond the sheet metal. crap! also marked it up pretty good. then after i started driving the check engine light came on, so when it went underneath it must have snagged an O2 sensor or something. the truckers insurance is going to pay for it all. the explorer had some damage too. i got an estimate today for the body work, and it was $1200. i'm a bit nervous because they said silver is the hardest color to match well. i sure hope it looks just like new when they're done. i hate it when you can tell a car had a body panel painted. i'm going to take it in on monday to the dealer to get the engine light corrected. hopefully it's a quick fix.

This is the worst feeling ever; almost as though you have been violated. Unfortunately, your vehicle will never be the same, and if cosmetically they can patch it up it won't feel the same.

Don't sweat it. Dad's Catera has been patched and touched up several times and I cannot locate any of the repairs. :cool He has the maroon metallic.

JUST REMEMBER, If the repair is not to your satisfaction, do not drive it home. MAKE them do it right. Silver is no harder to match than any other color. :seeya:
