I pressed on the brake and my foot slipped and hit the gas. Without further ado...

Basically there is some front damage to the bumper and hood now. Plus I scraped up the bottom. I have crappy PIP insurance so how much will this cost out of my pocket, a grand? 2 grand?

New bumper on a car like that, plus paint work to the hood... 3-4 grand probably. Bumpers are damn expensive these days.

ATOT this is why you do not drop insurance down to just PIP/state minimums. Because when the Casiotech bug bites you and you crash your car, you will be happy because you'll have it fixed for only your deductible....

PIP is for injuries. Your out of pocket cost should be whatever your deductible is.

Edit: Wait, you have no collision on a relatively new car? :Q

I wouldnt tell PIP shit, just try and fix it on the QT. Some hammering, spray paint. I bet you could even find some local mom and pop garage to do the work for a few hundred bucks. As long as its drivable before you try and fix it that is.

it doesn't look that bad, you didn't seem to damage the headlights.

you can find a bumper of the same color by submitting a request for one on one of the junkyard databases online, that'll link you to thousands of junkyards.
but that'll probably be unlikely, given that your car looks like a fairly new model
this would probably only cost you no more than $500.

On the other hand, you might have to go to the dealership to get a replacement bumper, then you'll get reamed.
But I wouldn't expect it to cost more than $1000-1500, unless you're looking for a really damn good paintjob.

The dangers of using the same foot for breaking and acceleration. Thankfully, that was not a cross walk with people crossing when this happened. I have two feet, so I use one for accelerating, one for breaking. Though on a stick, I use the same foot for breaking.

Dangers of using the same foot? I would presume that 99.9% of the world use the same foot to accelerate and brake (not break btw) whether its a stick or an automatic.

It is much more complicated for your brain if you use right foot to accelerate and left foot to brake., One false signal and you are in the same predicament as OP

I was raised to believe that insurance is a waste of money. Generally speaking, it is. Even when they pay up, they just raise your premium so you end up losing even more in the long run.

I'd gladly pay a couple of grand out of my pocket. I save thousands just by having PIP each year. I did a few quotes for full coverage and it was rapage given my age and the car. This isn't my only car, I have a beater car and an old isuzu. I use this mainly on my days off and weekends.

In the past 5 years I probably saved over 10-12 grand alone doing PIP. If you can afford to pay your car in full go with PIP no matter what car you buy (unless it's a REALLY exotic, expensive sports car or Bentley or something)

I'm not asian and I was pulling in, braked, then hit the gas. The car is pretty twitchy and kaboom. The damage is there but it's not really noticeable in the pic. the hood is kinda messed up, the grill part and the bumper sticks out of the sides now. The car is like made of plastic probably so a lot of stuff just sprung back into place.

Insurance always sounds like a waste of money if you never use it, but the one time you hit something and get footed for the bill, you'll be happy you had it.

If you're less than 25 and have an expensive or fast car, it costs thousands. And unless you wreck your car or someone else's and cause injuries, it is a waste of money. But that might be a good enough reason to have it.

No it doesn't. It costs thousands if you're a moron with a REALLY bad driving record, live in a really bad area, or just aren't shopping around. I had full coverage on a Supra when I was 17 and it was under $1000 a year in NJ, before any reforms took place to bring back the lower cost insurance carriers.

When I moved to another state with that car at age 23 with far lower average costs to insure, full coverage cost me about $700 a year.

Mind you, this is with one speeding ticket and one not-at-fault accident. You have to do a lot worse or not shop around to have it cost thousands. It's definitely not a waste of money, not when I drive around here and see a lot of expensive cars. Hitting one of those could be more than 50k in property damage if you manage to total it. Always carry appropriate limits.

you're so full of s***. Try getting off mommy and daddy's insurance policy and see how they rip you a new one.

Like the wise man said, I am still under 25 and full coverage is thousands more. Clean record and AM NOT ASIAN!!!!


Sorry, but the first thing I did when I saw that pic was LMAO

WOW NSF4 posting in my thread?!! That hasn't happened since like, 2002.

yeah I used to clean the tires/rims everyday, then I just stopped giving a shit.

thanks for trying to get me to convert to full coverage. I don't speed, rarely use highways, NEVER tailgate anyone... I'll stick with my 10/20/10 basic crap. Or is it 10/40/10 or 20/40/20. I don't even know. Insurance companies net billions off of the 'what if' mantra.

do you guys also buy insurance on your tv's???

anyway, I may have a hookup with a body shop who can do this for less than a grand and they are all certified in whatever it is they do.

You buy insurance for things that you can't easily afford to replace. No one wants to spend $20k+ on a new car if they total their car and are at fault, or if the other guy doesn't have insurance and can't pay up.

My wife's car was totaled, but the other guy's van was still good enough for him to drive off. If that happened to you, you'd be SOL.

Here are pics of an accident I got into for similar reasons (5 years ago), and I was shocked when the insurance company declared the car a total loss, saying the damage exceeded the car value of $8000. I thought it was 1 or 2 thousand tops. So don't be shocked if it is in the thousands to fix.

Edit: Clearly my car has more damage, my point is don't underestimate the cost of the damage to the car like I did.

you're so full of s***. Try getting off mommy and daddy's insurance policy and see how they rip you a new one.

Like the wise man said, I am still under 25 and full coverage is thousands more. Clean record and AM NOT ASIAN!!!!



I love kiddies leveraging their parents and thinking that's the way it is for everyone.

I know at 21 I was looking at buying a ZR1 corvette. They wanted $6000 or so a year and the car wasn't even new. I tried to look at a normal vette and it was still $4500.

I was paying $225 a month for my 88 Mustang GT at the time, about $3000 a year.

South Florida, good driver on my license.

Why is everyone assuming this twit even owns a car? He prob snapped this pic on his way to the bus stop and claimed it's his just for the attention.

Looks like you probably hit a lot of under-the-hood components with that one.

I'd gladly pay a couple of grand out of my pocket. I save thousands just by having PIP each year. I did a few quotes for full coverage and it was rapage given my age and the car. This isn't my only car, I have a beater car and an old isuzu. I use this mainly on my days off and weekends.

In the past 5 years I probably saved over 10-12 grand alone doing PIP. If you can afford to pay your car in full go with PIP no matter what car you buy (unless it's a REALLY exotic, expensive sports car or Bentley or something)

I'm not asian and I was pulling in, braked, then hit the gas. The car is pretty twitchy and kaboom. The damage is there but it's not really noticeable in the pic. the hood is kinda messed up, the grill part and the bumper sticks out of the sides now. The car is like made of plastic probably so a lot of stuff just sprung back into place.



Jesus, what kind of driver are you when you have to spend over 2 grand a year on insurance? I don't even pay more than $1000 a year for full coverage.

Why did you edit that you only paid $500 per year for full coverage?

This reminds me the time some old asian lady managed go thru a brick wall at my apartment complex. That is a foot high curb, 4 feet of sidewalk, 8feed of bushes and a brick wall. I'll see if i have pics...

edit:

satellite picture, zoom all the way in (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=1+River+Ct,+Jersey+City,+NJ+07310,+USA&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&resnum=1&ct=title) that white piece of wall that curves to the right is no longer there. The lady nailed it from inside of the loop and perpendicular to the car parked there.

Lawler look at the guy from NJ stereotyping drivers.

God.. everytime I see a NJ plate around here... ugh... oops I did it too.

It's pretty crazy for 1 car... we have 3 cars under us, including 1 full coverage, 1 teenage driver, and in NY, and pay $2k/yr.

I forgot that I changed my policy for the full coverage and was using my old quotes for $500.

Actually, I agree with you on the insurance...although Comprehensive (which is cheap, cheap, cheap), which you don't have, makes MUCH more sense than PIP. Don't have health insurance?

Basically there is some front damage to the bumper and hood now. Plus I scraped up the bottom. I have crappy PIP insurance so how much will this cost out of my pocket, a grand? 2 grand?

It's "adieu"
It's a French word, pfft.
