I was hit in the drivers side front really hard on Sunday and I got word today they are going to total the G8.. I am pretty upset about it, The car meant more to me than anything.. I was not at fault for the accident.

I hit my head, But I am fine.. The insurance company offered a very low number, I told them absolutely not.. They might end up fixing it if they can't come up with a decent figure. I have over 3000.00 in aftermarket parts invested into the car.

Oh damn man, that sucks. Sorry it had to happen!!

I hit a deer just before x-mas on the Berlin Tpke (yeah, WTF?). Fixed for $7,100. Hood, bumper cover, fender repair, paint, lights and that's about it. You should get at least $20k for it IMO.

Yeah they made me an offer of 22K and I turned it down.. These cars in my area are running about 23-26K depending on miles. We are still going back in forth on this almost a month deep in it now.. They are saying they are not going to work with me on the aftermarket parts and I think that they better come up with something good.. Even if they do there is a pretty good chance I am going to take the Corsa exhaust system off the car and put the stock one back on there.

I don't plan on replacing the G8, It will be the one and only.. However if I found a smoking deal on a GXP that was white I would consider it. Still kills me to see the car like this, Going to clean it out is going to hurt.

There is like over 13K in body panels and lights.. I was told by an inside source my car totals at 18K and change.. So with labor and paint its way up there.. Half the car needs to be repainted.

I read your thread over on GPONA and came here to see if there was a thread here too, this really sucks man, I hope the insurance company doesn't fuck you too bad. I had commerce when I got rear ended in the Monte and they were huge assholes about the whole process, so I do know what you're dealing with.

Best of luck to you and glad to hear you're not hurt.

Ya commerce can suck but honestly it depends on who you get to cover your case. I have commerce and so does my girlfriend, i got into an accident in her car and her insurance had been cancelled and we didnt realize that. So i said can we cover it under my insurance but at first they said no because we are in the same house. I told no she had moved back out and the car was never registered to that address anyways, just the insurance bill got sent there. The woman said shed have to talk to her boss. 2 weeks go by, i get a letter from the other guys insurance saying they want the money for his car, i call commerce back and the said they were going to cover us under my insurance, i was shocked and thrilled!

The thing with insurance is that they are trained not to pay you, they do all that they can to not send the money because most people just give up and take it in the ass from them. if you fight, and you have to be pleasant about it, they will eventually give you the money if you dont give up.

Yeah I know, A friend of mine runs Advanced Auto Body in Worcester and he has been helping me through all of this.. This accident happened in the first week of December and they have made a couple of offers and I have turned them down. They were using some V6 G8's to reference the prices and I told them they are using the wrong model car. I told them to fix it if they don't want to pay the cost of it, It doesn't matter to me. I am not getting screwed because another Commerce customer smashed into me, Why should I be penalized for someone else's negligence.

Thanks, Hoping to get this sorted out shortly.. I had the Corsa system taken off the car, I will end up selling that at some point and hopefully get some money back for it.
