Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

I am sure I will come out ahead... plus the car is too old for a salvage title, so I keep a clean title and collision insurance. I know a guy at a good body shop, so I will probably get a break.

Car was deemed a total loss by the insurance company. I am buying it back, I get net $4,100 to fix it on my own. Can't complain when I paid $3,500 for it! :D

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

Yeah I am fine, and he totally did have a completely frost covered windshield... I saw it. There is no way he should have even left his driveway the way it was. You couldn't have seen anything out of that windshield.

And yes, that picture is of the underbody pan. It is messed up pretty badly.

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

That was totalled 10 months ago. I am keeping the Fusion and getting it fixed. I have collision insurance and it sounds like they are willing to fix it.

Insurance estimates $4,600 to fix it.

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

Well everyone, on Wednesday the Fusion was rear ended. The story goes as this... A guy hit me driving 35 mph while I was stopped for a red light. His excuse that he told the officer? "My windshield was completely covered in frost, I couldn't see a thing" :roll: You can't make this stuff up! :( :evil...

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

Well to each their own. I don't see it as ghetto at all. If I had the stock grill would I buy this and add it? Nah, I wouldn't. But to me, the all around black out tint is what looked ghetto. This grill is very plain. Better than all silver.

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

My truck had similar tint all the way around when I bought it. I found it significantly increased the degree of difficulty of driving at night and destroyed the usefulness of the right outside mirror when the sun was low in the sky and behind me. It was also one more thing the gendarmes could give ...
