I backed into a cement pole at a gas station last year and had to get some damage fixed. I had to get a new bumper cover, new left taillight, fixed the dent on the decklid, scratch on the quarter panel/gas door area. There isn't much behind the bumper besided the impact foam. Then there is just the metal of the trunk area. If an airbag didn't go off it wasn't that hard of a hit I wouldn't think. Mine DID cost State Farm about $2000 to fix, but the shop I used did repaint the bumper cover, decklid, rear drivers quarter panel, fuel door. If u are planning to repaint the car anyhow, just try to find a shop who will work with u and your insurance. I can give u a name of a place in NW indiana I used and have known the owners for 25 years. Its in Highland, IN. Its called Carl's Autobody Repair Service. They do full frame-off restorations and total autobody repair on anything from model A's to 2007 corvette. They will work with u and your insurance. If you happen to have state farm, they don't even have to call state farm, just fix it and send them the bill. They are approved by corporate state farm to do whatever and just fix it! They also do custom graphics, paint or vinyl, wheels, tint, etc. They rock!

It's best to ask your insurance agent. Most insurance companies have you get estimates from two different shops, other insurance companies want you to get it appraised at one of their own places. By the way.....Black is a great choice for 2G Treps.

lol, if you file a police report for an accident, MOST states require you to report the accident to YOUR insurance agency within a certain amount of time. 30 days in SC.

Unfortunately there's not much chance of the cops catching the asshole, unless your brother happened to get his plate number or knows who it was.
