My poor P85 and Dorn's Body & Paint in Central Virginia

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.
