Need Advice!

Hey everyone!

I need to make a decision on what to do here...My civic was hit in a parking lot and the person that hit me left the scene...I've received 3 estimates and the cheapest is 500 and my deductible is 500. They scratched up my bumper and drivers side fender. So should I fork out 500 to get it fixed or just buy a new bumper (kit) and the z3 fenders and save my money and get them painted on put on? I wanted to get a body kit sooner or later so I see it logical to just go ahead and buy the kit instead of paying to replace the stock parts.

Whats everyones input on this?

THANKS

if you really wanted the kit and z3 fenders, then i say go for it! Dont use your insurance for such a small claim, they are shady and will either drop you or raise rates

ya that sucks, if you want a kit go and get that. My car has been dinged up while at school and of course no one fesses up to hitting your car so I feel your pain. Luckily my damage is only a few hundred for some small dents and scuff marks on my rear bumper. Dang college parking lots
