My wife was rear-ended on Friday while driving my A4 to work. No injuries, it was a low-speed collision. Pictures are at -


Damage estimate is $3k. Repair guy told me that to fix the quarter-panel, they cut the entire panel out starting from about 1/3 of the way up the C-pillar.... THAT ought to make for an interesting repair. Of course, my daughter said, 'Will there be a line there?'.  ;-)

So anyone ever had that type of repair done to their car?? The shop it is at has a very good rep (and also a 6-week backlog!).
