So I hit a deer 20130806_080022.jpg :4-dontknow:

But It worked out because now I have a new gloss black grille instead of a plastidipped one. :TU: The Geico guy asked what the original color was and i told him chrome. He mentioned that he had to write the estimate for chrome. But then he came back with an estimate for a flat black one being there wasnt a cost difference. So I was happy about that. But then the shop called me and said "hey we ordered a flat black grille and a gloss black one. Which do you want?" That was a no brainer. I said GlossBlack of course. So I'm super happy. I also got a brand new bumper and hood which had two really deep scratches in them before the accident. All for my $500 deductible. I cant complain.

LOL. My comp deductible is only $50. I may have to go "deer hunting" if I get any more scratches in the hood!

Nice! When my car was battered by a hailstorm last year, I wanted the shop to order the SRT engine hood instead of the normal one. But they were so incompetent, and my car was in the shop going on 6 weeks, that they just ordered the normal and there wasn't enough time to get it switched. Missed opportunity...

Just to confirm, which grille do you like better? Gloss black painted or the plasti dip one?

Now that's a creative way to get your mods done. Wife won't let you spend money on a new part, hit something.

After you posted this I checked and putting my comp coverage at $50 only raises my insurance about $7 a month. I will be changing that soon. Thanks :TU:
