After 2 ½ months and less then 2500 miles some idiot decides to play bumper cars while I am sitting at a red light and rear ends my Torched Penny:mad: , and if that’s not bad enough the maggot runs away after she has done it:eek: . Luckily a number of people were able to get her license plate #. And to make matters worst the idiot insurance adjuster has not noted all the damage that’s done, plus he wrote on the claim report that my penny is Black Cherry pearl, like I am going to let them paint my baby Black Cherry Pearl. As of right now the adjuster has give an estimate of $ 8000 and that’s with Black Cherry Pearl paint. I was wondering if anyone had a problem of getting the paint matched, and the cost of the paint job.

The Waiting is killer

The wait is already killer, I waited over a month to get the penny and now I have to wait who knows how long to get her back :mad: . Steve with your estimate starting out at $5300 and ending with $11000 I am bugging out about mine. The adjuster's first estimate on my car is $8000 I hate to see where the price will end. :eek: THanks for your help with photobucket as well.

Now that is CRAZY! That ***** musta hit you pretty hard to crack and bend the roofline like that. You're looking at A LOT of work there. I can't believe she had the nerve to run after doing THAT. Grrrr, the NERVE of some of these morons out there! Why will the insurance companies finally learn that some people just shouldn't drive?

I hope everything comes out well for you. I am deeply saddened by this, and I will keep your box in my thoughts!

Ouch

What is going on with the Penny’s?
I mean how can people miss that color?
Or rather, why DON’T people miss that color. . .

Anyway, glad no one was hurt, please keep us posted.

My Penny is Grounded.

That's it. I've decided to take my penny and put her in the garage / bedroom until the curse is over. Too many 4.0's getting clobbered. I waited months for mine and if some moron hits her. Well let's just say... I run the jail here in town and they would be longtime residents... Believe It !!!! Glad no one was hurt... except the paint.

Structural damage

Well, I talked to the insurance adjuster today and he was using buzzwords like significant structural damage and caved in rear right side. He said that they won’t know just how much structural damage there is until they have a clear view of the undercarriage. He was saying that the car was hit so hard everything shifted, like I need to be told that I was in the car. Can they fix significant structural damage? He also said that it if it is fixed it would be in the shop for more than a month.

Honestly, if you have good insurance, I would be hoping for a total. You'll be much happier with a brand new car than a car that has been wrecked so severely.

The nice thing is, I know there are still RS4.0s on lots. Or well, at least as of a week ago around here.

There' a BUNCH around here.

I think the biggest issue buyers are having is that they look at the previous RS' and notice they came with a lot more than color shift paint.

I know a few of the sales reps around here aren't impressed with the 4.0 like they were with the envy 3. Something about the lack of sounds...
