Now that the iron fist of Obamacare is descending, you should know that if you refuse a government approved health care plan, your auto insurance goes up for that too.

That's "mostly cosmetic"? Do they realize the amount of electronics that sit in the front of the car? Make sure you get it fixed at a place that uses all OEM parts...nothing after market.

Mostly cosmetic??? Dude, prepare for a surprise - my "mostly cosmetic" brush off in January turned out to be a $16K+ claim on a 1-year old car.

If you are nice to the shop, you could work out a deal with them where they bill you the difference in P&L.

Yeah I agree. But luckily my girlfriend didn't bring her car to college so I'll be driving a 2005 325 with 174k miles for a few weeks
