I recently got into my first accident and the other person hit me. It was a pretty small fender bender where no one was injured and the damaged looked very minor. So I did the other guy a favor and didn’t go through insurance. His family supposedly owned a small dealership and had a relationship with a body shop they said they could quickly get repaired for me. I thought this would be less of a hassle but the whole thing has been a nightmare. I actually did report the accident to my insurance after it happened, but told them it was not my fault and we weren’t using insurance for now. I have now gotten my car back and the main cosmetic issues have been fixed. However I noticed that the bumper is not completely flush with the top panel. Is this repair job good enough that it isn’t worth it to deal with fixing, or should I make a huge deal about it and contact my insurance now?
The first picture is the side that was repaired, note the small gap, and the second is the non accident side (there is a scratch that was there before the accident)
I’ve also included two pictures of the non accident and repaired side of the rear lights. Note the small gap on the repaired side vs the non repaired side.
