      15-20k with no bent frame. The stupid DCC shocks are like 500 each, and my guess is there is a ton of hidden damage.

      I seriously doubt that's totaled. Looks like it scraped along the side and caught the tread of the tire, with the control arms taking the brunt of it. Would be extremely tough for that to bend the frame.

      I'll guess $12.5k, including new bumper cover, taillight, body work on C-pillar and door, wheel, tire, control arms, trailing arm, axle, and alignment. Assuming you get the car back, personally after some driving I would check for leaks from the haldex, particularly around the axle flange.

      Yup, it's a real life example of kinetic energy = 1/2 * mass * velocity^2. 600 lbs at 45 miles an hour is about the same energy as 3100 lbs at 20.

      edit: Oh, and I'm guessing subframe and haldex are OK, but if not, let's say +1k and +3.5k respectively.

      OP sorry that happened.

      Getting dropped off at school by my friends mom years ago we got rear ended by a speeding motorcycle. Dude went right over the car, and landed on the road. He got really hurt, but was moving, never found out if he made it. It is pretty crazy how much damage a bike can do, it was basically imbedded into her pride and joy nearly brand new Maxima. He basically drove into the trunk about a foot away from where I was sitting. Surprisingly none of us even got whiplash since she wasn't hard on the brakes, but thank god there was no car coming in the oncoming lane since we were shunted forward.


      I believe it was totaled since she never got it back

      Bolded for the important part.

      It's usually a good thing someone isn't on the brakes, or it would be a worse hit. It's the back-and-forth that often gets you, rather than just the one (first) acceleration. If on the brakes there's the initial hit, the hard decel that whips your head forward and the second stop which whips your head back again. That's really rough on your neck.

      I've seen two cars hit by speeding motorcycles and both were royally messed up. One never ran again and the other was embedded in the side of a mini pickup in front of the rear wheel, so it just crushed the metal box and hit nothing mechanical, so it was drivable. With the damage done it was a lucky hit, or else the truck would've been toast and it would've likely been a harder impact for the idiot on the bike since the bed was so deformable.

      Absolutely. This definitely could have been a lot worse. This was a glancing blow for the most part.

      It cracks me up when people think you shouldn't use every means at your disposal to take down a criminal. If you have 5 cops, you use 5 cops. If the guy has a knife are you supposed to think "well that's not fair, I have a gun. I'll put it away and get a knife so it's a fair fight." Nope nope nope.

      Using every means is a bit of an overstatement. But when you're dealing with someone who has proven they'll resist arrest, they've proven they're a danger to the public at large, and you add in the effects of being on drugs, you get a situation that needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible. They took the opportunity to prevent him from putting anyone else at risk.

      Yeah, it's an oversimplification, but I think we're on the same page.

      Nuking the perp from orbit would certainly be overkill.

      It's the only way to be sure, though.


      I agree.

      This.

      If it were my car and the unibody got damaged I certainly wouldn't want the car back, but what you want is irrelevant to how insurance handles it.

      If the car can be fixed to the standards they set, then it will be fixed. Period. Even if they have to cut the car in half to accomplish this. Some of the repairs that body guys are doing on more expensive cars is insane. With the cost of vehicles getting so high, many accidents that would have totaled a new car 15 years ago are now something they have to fix, since the damage doesn't hit whatever number insurance sets to total it.

      I agree, but other than the apparently cosmetic damage on C-pillar I'm guessing the unibody is fine. TBH if it were my car, I'd want it back--insurance probably wouldn't payout enough for a brand new one and the market for 1-2 year old Golf Rs is intense.

      If you trust the body shop to do the right thing, then the car should be fine.

      It's when body shops cut corners to get a car back on the road as fast as possible when you run into issues. They may not present themselves until years down the road, and that's a tough pill to swallow if you still own it.

      That's the kicker. A good and well equipped body shop can do an amazing job putting a bent car back together and getting everything straight, but if one part of it is half assed then the car could easily be compromised permanently.

      It's not totaled, but it's going to be every bit of $10,000 to fix it.

      I had a chunk of ice the size of a baseball fall off a semi truck, and bounce off the leading edge of my hood at highway speeds over the winter. It barely dented the hood, and left some scratches about 4 inches in diameter. I had it fixed at a VW shop and it was nearly $500 for just that, and all they had to do was fill the dent and repaint the hood.

      Sorry to see the damage, but the car took it well.

      Paintwork is not cheap, but $500 is a pretty good price for that.

      The look on the cop's face after they detained him and saw his foot hanging on by a thread was priceless. "hey bob, take a look at this guy's foot". Also, shouldn't the officers used a bit of caution moving that dude? I mean yeah, he's a crackhead, but they could have paralyzed him.

      Either $13,889 if the chassis isn't bent, or totaled if the chassis got tweaked. I wouldn't want that car back if the chassis moved at all.
      Nah, its not that bad. Look at the door gap, the structure is fine. Door will be repaired, and I bet the quarter panel will be as well, Hell even the bumper may be repaired. The taillight, rear suspension arms, and wheel and tire will be replaced. Suspension components are designed to bend, and absorb impacts, and thats exactly what they did.

      My guess is around 8k. Thats an easy fix, and nothing that is going to compromise the structure.

      I also think that is a $8k or less repair. The suspension components will need to be replaced, but I doubt there is any "frame" damage.


      Example:


      This was $18k to repair (took 4 months for the rear quarter section to be made and shipped from Germany) with no structural frame damage. Car was an 07, and the damages occurred in 09.


      Edit: Jettavr666 beat me to most of what I thought as well.
