Hey sure appreciate that it looks exactly like that. I was thinking of just paying for the damage myself though and keep my insurance out of it hate for the premiums to go up or something never had a claim in 16 years now. I was also going to just go to the dealer tomorrow and have them replace the front end, you think the auto body shop then would be a better idea?Mr.DJ said:Well, if yours looks anything like this after a low-speed altercation...
...then about $1,800 for everything installed and painted; i.e., radiator support bracket assembly, front energy absorber, front bumper cover, front bumper cover moldings, grille assembly, and headlamp assembly. This price also included the required re-aiming of both headlamps. I also had no damage to either the hood or to either of the front fenders, and the front-end wasn't knocked out of alignment. My car drove just find and experienced no other mechanical issues other than the one which caused the incident in the first place. Your insurance will cover the costs of the OEM grille;thus, leaving you to only pay the difference between the OEM and your new aftermarket grill. Your auto body/paint shop should be able to work with you in this respect...good luck. :wave:
Thanks gives me at least a starting point at what I am looking at.
Also edited to add these pics I took earlier.
