    So got the estimate from the body shop today not too bad... Total cost should be around 3000$ they quoted 2900$ but you never know what else they might find while taking it apart. Insurance will cover everything all I need is the 500$ deductible so that's not terrible at least I mean I wish it never happened but 500 will have to do. Body shop said once the parts all come in car should be ready to go about 5 days after so I'm pumped and can't wait to get her back! Will keep you posted on anything else!

    I know that it's to late now but you should look into a 0$ Comprehensive Deductible. I changed mine from a $250 to a $0 and it was only $5 more a month and comprehensive covers everything other than a collishion that is your fault.

    In New Jersey (land of crazy expensive car insurance), it's going to be more than $5/month.

    lucky for those powerlines, or else you probably wouldve had a totaled wrx.

    i deal with these kind of claims a lot as an adjuster, and the large majority of the time, the homeowners insurance of the property owner will not cover the loss because the tree falls (no pun intended) under an "act of god" clause in the policy. if the owner is cool, maybe you can get your $500 deductible back from him.

    on the comprehensive coverage note, its a fairly inexpensive coverage to purchase, but a lot depends on where you live. In California, the company I work for doesn't even offer $0 deductible coverage, but it's always worth checking out the price difference.

    good luck, i hope you car looks great when it's done!

    I hit my 1K last week, but parked it for the weekend. This weekend going on a trip and taking the long way around with some curves. Living in the woods ain't a bad thing, living near state parks are fun. Hopefully you aren't going crazy without your ride and you get it back soon.

    as long as you took your vehicle to a good shop, there is no reason to be worried about bondo. plus, its much better for the car for them to repair that windshield pillar with a very thin layer of bondo than to cut the whole pillar out of the roof and A pillar and weld a new one in.

    hope you get your car back soon

    Godspeed, my brother.

    I knicked one of my wheels on a turn I took too sharply and there is now a permanent gash. I could feel my heart sink when I saw it.. this is now my 2nd self-inflicted scuff to my baby. I can't imagine how much this must hurt you!
