i doubt they have video cameras there, but if they do and they get it on tape that would be great!

my guess tho is that the only way i'll get this fixed is if you can find paint on the car that did it. it would be on a corner, possibly some green paint smered into it and/or a dent. if you find anything just relay the license plate number to me and i'll have my insurance company handle it from there.

would it be a good time to upgrade to a bodykit since i'll be painting anyways? i'm gonna have the fender replaced with an oem one, gonna cost like $212 at bavauto for the fender alone, not including painting and bodyshop labor costs.

anyone have any suggestions for a bodykit on my car? i like the m-tech body kits, but i'm open to suggestions.
