Well my car was dropped off at the body shop this morning and my rental was picked up. Its a 4 day repair.
My rental is a 2012 VW Jetta S. Pretty nice car, the auto is sluggish and the steering has a weird ratio, you turn the wheel way more then im used to, to get it to turn. Otherwise I dig it

Yep the officer was an idiot and and the best part was it happened on Dec 13 i went to the DPS office (city court, "police", fire, and water utility office; that is the size of a three bedroom house) on Dec 27 14 days later( i was out of town form the 14 to 26) and requested the accident report because i needed here information (I ask the officer if i could have it after the accident and he told me that i had to get it from the report that would be posted 72 hours later, and i couldnt get it from her because she was being treated by fire fighters for her "injuries" but when ask if she needed to go to the hospital she promptly replyed no.) I was told by the dispatcher/ clerk that i could only get it online but it was not posted yet. After auguring with her for a few minutes about how i needed it i asked to speak with there defense attorney(so that i could inform him that if he didnt have it to me by the end of the day he would be hearing from my lawyer) i was informed that they didnt have one in house and she would have to look up the correct one after waiting a few more minutes an officer cam out and asked if he could help us and he got it and gave me a speech about how the officer told me 72 hours and the card says 5-7 days but it is normally 14 days(with it was). To with my dad who had drooped me off replayed that is a long time to wait for the at party at faults information, the officer said that's what your insurance is for(what a jack ass). Now my insurance is trying to convince the other insurance that if they dont pay that we are taking them to court and they will loose so they might as well make it easy and cheaper for there selves. But it looks like it is going to court and i kind of hope it dose so me and my insurance can make a complete ass of him. Since as an engineering student i just couldnt help my self form doing a little equation on the accident. And only including rolling resistance and mass and velocity of our cars, not including factors like braking, the impact absolution of my car ect. With me starting at rest and traveling the distance that we did she had to be going 35mph when she hit me, the speed limit is 40mph. So for the factors unaccounted for she was going at least the speed limit coming to a red light. But most likely speeding when she hit me

I'm not sure how the officer could have justified that one, according to the law. I hope you have his badge # too for your insurance to have fun with.

I think I beat you...
My 2012 S was T-boned in the drivers side rear door and wheel... by a 1999 Dodge Caravan...
Here's the list of my Carnage..
Wheel, Rear (I supplied from ebay) 217.00 thier cost 495.00
back glass, Heated (repair) 88.00
Panel left Qtr 1020.15
glass qtr (tinted) 88.00
Knuckle Rear Susp Left 148.52
Hub Wheel Rear 112.03
Rear Shock/Strut 68.18
Rocker Molding (waiting on price)
Inner Wheel house (waiting on price)
Total hours for sheet metal replacement/repair - 42.8 hours
Total of the estimate initially was 5218.96
But was told some additional damage was found and it's gonna add almost another 500.00 bucks to it.
To really make matters worse.. the guy that hit me had no license, no insurance and has no job or assets... ugh..
Luckily I wasn't hurt... all it did to his was rip his front bumper off...

Glad everyone is okay and glad the damage is overall pretty minimal!
I'm not sure if this applies in your case, but check if you can get a diminished value reimbursement. Sometimes you can get a check for a grand or two from the other insurance company since your car now does not have a "clean" carfax/etc.
