So my fiancee was driving my car a few days ago when some Miami jerk-of-a-driver decided to eat a red light and scrape across the left front side of my car, then run off in a hit-and-run. My fiancee wasn’t able to track the guy down nor get his tag #, sadly enough. Now I have to foot the bill to repair the damage.
I just want to get some advice here/price estimates to go by. I’ve seen bumpers for my Civic EX-L 2012 go for about 100 bucks, and a new headlight (don’t know if I need either, but just saying) about 140-195. Some of the hooks on the bumper are damaged but the bumper itself has no dents, and the top strap-on for the headlight is torn off. The corner of the metal-plastic just behind the bumper is a bit dented in also. Judging from the pictures, can any expert here give me a price estimate and/or some tips to know because I don’t want to get screwed over by a mechanic. Luckily I know the damage is cosmetic and no engine parts were damaged.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
