Oh yeah definitely, that's one of the first things I did. Guy desperately tried to pay me off to not call the cops, lucky I had a friend with me to kinda back me up. A guy that works at autozone, a car behind him stopped as a witness and gave us his phone number and said he saw him hit us, but cops said he obviously hit me so a witness wasn't needed.

Almost laughably the guy was like lets go take it to walmart I'll get it fixed. My friend was like I work there, we don't fix body damage.

Cops said they can't arrest him because he has some kinda prescription. Guy was ticking me off in that he kept laying against my door poking his head in my car, telling me to not call the cops, saying you don't want trouble, I don't want trouble. I really thought I smelled alcohol on him, I told cops but I don't know if they did anything.

They impounded his car and gave him a ticket, but the phone number he has doesn't currently have minutes, they said I'd have to sue him. I'm taking it to a ford dealer first thing tomorrow.

Well got the go-ahead from progressive to have it dropped off at a ford body shop. They said they're going to try and go after the guy, but they have no guarantees, he could skip town.

Problem is now my friend and me are starting to have neck pain. I'm so disappointed, I was supposed to be in my first car show with it this Saturday. Even though it's not my fault I keep thinking what if I had gone this way instead of that way or left a little sooner, this wouldn't have happened.

Sucks doesn't it? Years ago I was putting my car away for the winter. On the way to the storage place I was hit head on by a drunk driver. At 5:30pm on a Sunday...

No insurance, suspended license. (him, not me)

If beating someone was legal.... I tell you what.

Wow absolutely unreal. "You dont want trouble"? Over reporting your dumbass that hit me? This is why I keep a freakin HK on tap. This guy coulda had a lot to lose and coulda tried something. You handled it perfect man believe it or not people stress out and do incredibly stupid things in these situations, even when things arent their fault.

Three months after getting my car this lady hit me in the exact same spot. She begged to keep it off insurance. I was like nope im calling the cops. She got pissed. My phone died on me when i tried to make the call. Walked over and tried to borrow her phone and refuses. Tries to act like shes calling some big shot with the sheriffs dpt. She wanted me to follow her to her workplace to exchange info bc she didnt want to be next to the highway. I pretty much had to agree to it with no phone. She tried to speed off in this eclipse i stayed right on her ***. I had to do 85 to pace her. Finally ended up chatting with her husband on the phone who was much more mature and straight up about it. She bought me catbacks and a bumper

I was happy to see that the crushed passenger exhaust pipe was actually a long clamp on tip that came with the Magnapack cat-back. However I e-mailed Magnaflow and they said sorry we won't sell you the exhaust tip separate from the entire kit. The other tips they sell appear to be too short. Any ideas what to do now?

It's good as new! They replaced the entire magnaflow magnapack cat-back and rear bumper assembly. Now hopefully my insurance can get the deductible money back.

Nice choice. And only 30,000 miles. It's just breaking in! I hope you enjoy it? The black paint looks like it's in VERY GOOD shape.

Man , I'm sorry, I was just looking through your thread and saw you got hit. That even made me sick. The good thing is it really doesn't look like any structural damage. Hope this doesn't affect your love for the car? My wifes '04 Mach1 was hit in a parking lot by some idiot with a trailer hitch a while back. We had to fork out almost 500.00. Mainly because we had to pay for it ourselves since the creep left, and I didn't want an aftermarket bumper. But, we still love the Mach.

I would head to a local muffler shop. Most have nice exhaust tips they can fabricate onto the pipes.

It's ok now, I just got it back today from a local Ford bodyshop. They replaced the entire Magnaflow cat-back, so now it's got a fresh set of mufflers, pipes and nice shiny tips. I made out better than before the accident. I was quite surprised they forked out the $699 to replace the system, because the only damaged tip was decently repaired except for two dings. So for two dings on a tip, I got a fresh new exhaust, nice!

Bumper paint job is really good, they matched it well. I kept the old one as a memento, we did the same with the front bumper to my dads old 89 GT that's now long gone.

I'm happy to hear that. Sometimes it works out for the best...Other times no. We have Progressive Ins, they gave us a hard time going to the dealer for repairs when my wifes old Explorer was hit. But, I went to the dealer anyway. They couldn't prevent me from going there anyway. I'm HAPPY for you.
