      It does suck, but I'm more motivated for the allroad now. I'm thinking bull bars, light bars, and a PA system. All things needed for a city commute.

      If there wasn't the indent I'd likely do just that. I was told the filler for bumpers is really good one shop and they haven't had issues with it, but I'm still a little skeptical.

      You are doing it right. Fix it then sue the PERSON who hit you for the repair costs. Let them have insurance file to defend and your damages are now ironclad and they will lose AND eat all your costs.

      NOW you need to be pursuing your diminished value as well as any other problems. Have you seen any doctors over all the stress this has been causing you? You should.

      If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.

      I would check out this site - www.wreckcheck.com - you vehicle has certainly sustained diminished value due to no fault of your own.

      Realistically, I'm probably only making 460ish to the wheels. It's pretty much just a plain old boring Q5.

      Update. Ended up going through my insurance as the shop I found didn't deal with National General. I guess they gave the body shop enough bad checks that they blacklisted them.

      I should get the car back this week. The body shop pushed my insurance to use an OEM bumper cover, saying it would take more labor to get the non-oem to fit properly.

      Since I just got the final bill (paid 100% by my insurance), anyone want to play guess the damage?

      I’m guessing around $4k. I had similar damage in my old Lexus and that’s about what it cost through the dealer.

      Well, that was quick. $4,036.55 was the final cost.

      For a freaking bumper replacement.

      No wonder insurance is so expensive around here.

      No, but it will have been 3 weeks when I pick it up. Not a quick fix.

      I was shocked, it went from $1K on the initial insurance estimate to $4K all said and done. I'm looking forward to the final breakdown of charges.

      I would have guessed $4K as well as that's roughly what it cost to fix my A4 Avant when it was rear ended. Amazing how those plastic bumpers pop back into place and hide the real damage underneath.
