First Accident

Hey guys,

First accident/ticket ever in my life this morning on the way to work in my 12 rallye redline. Cracked my front bumper, and grille pretty bad. Where is the best place to try to purchase a new bumber cover, energy absorber (and all that good stuff) and a new grille. Luckily the headlights, fog lights, and side markers are working. I just hit them enough to do more damage to my car than his old HONDA CIVIC!!! Im disgusted, this is making me sick as i type lol It could be worse though. I have a pretty high deductible which means I will essentially pay for all of the parts and insurance should cover labor, but what would be the best route to go? Let them handle the part buying or try to find some aftermarket front bumper and grille.

First....thankfully you're not hurt. That's the most important thing. Always remember that!

We can help you get all the parts you need. If you want, have a body shop put together the estimate of all the parts they'll be replacing and we'll price them out for you. We have good connections with Mopar and hopefully can save you some money!

Unless you deductible is over $1000 you're better off taking it through your insurance, the front fascia (bumper and all) with paint and stripe work will get you pretty close to the $1000 mark, if the upper grill is cracked that's another $600+. The front pieces of the vehicles are not cheap...

So it was your fault?

This tone in this post kinda ticked me off. I had a 96 honda civic coupe before my Challenger in pretty amazing condition when some knob backed into and UP onto me (yes- hit the gas instead of brake when he realized he hit me) when he pulled out of a spot without looking. One of the first things he said to me was "Well ...What year is this civic? I'm really more pissed about my car"....
He was driving a newer Lancer.

I could have killed him. You don't say that to someone you just hit, regardless of the car!

Anywho.. sucks to see these cars get damaged. Drive safe.

Thanks for all of the help guys,....I quickly figured out how it's going to be much easier to go through the insurance company as the little parts do add up quickly. Sorry If I offended the Honda crowd but in Ga you get a ticket for following too closely for looking at the rear of a car for too long, I had no chance in getting out of that ticket. Never had a speeding ticket or been pulled over but today I guess I just decide to ride the butt of a civic for the fun lol (sarcasm) . its his word against mine, and he has the rear damage so he wins automatically. The point with the civic being that his car barely has a scuff and my front bumper and grille is blown to pieces, I just needed to vent about that.
