    I was rear ended last month which meant that my 2013 P85 is now at Dorn's Body & Paint in Mechanicsville, VA. The Toyota that hit me submarined under the rear bumper, so the aluminum floor pan is what took most of the hit. If it were bumper only, it would be about a $2k repair. They also nicked my back hatch. Now it is more of a $15k repair.

    Apparently Dorn's is getting a bunch of vehicles from all over, including the DC area and Raleigh. If you want a picture of your vehicle during repair, please let me know, I'm probably going to be there 2-3 more times before my vehicle is done in the next 2 or so weeks.

    Oof, sorry to hear that.

    So sorry to see and hear that Bill!!! I have a Black P85 (2012) as you may remember, and it hurts me to see what that driver did to your car.

    You should see the other guy...

    My Damage looked almost the same. The total for me was $28k, 2 months with no vehicle, and I was able to get $5k in diminished resale value, though that took some fighting.

    I'm so sorry to see this. I am praying that I can keep my girl a virgin!
