[Trigger warning: if you're squeamish about Tesla gore, you might want to look away] Well, this happened : There were "circumstances", but the bottom line was "my fault". I made an "ill-advised" left turn. The good news: no one, including the (completely blameless) driver that hit me, was hurt. The only "injury" was some airbag rash I got on one arm. All that auto safety crap that we haul around really works when you need it! The bad news, in addition to the other driver's really messed-up car (no pictures of that): I got the estimate (*) from the insurance company today (very prompt). The shop tells me that for Teslas they always end up adding a bunch of stuff to that initial estimate once they start tearing things down, so I won't even bother to say what it was, though it was way below what I was expecting/fearing. Begin the "how much will this mess cost to repair (and how long will it take)?" games! Fwiw, the shop says the parts availability situation has improved considerably in recent months. I am very glad to hear they can repair it, 'cause I really like this specific car and wouldn't want to have to replace it. I'm sure many of you can relate to how beyond becoming attached to Tesla, in general, you become attached to your particular car. My only worry is how well they are able to determine all of the possible effects of an impact like this throughout the car. Although I suspect they'd just flat-out reject any car that's been in a collision like this, I wonder how the 'C' part of Tesla's CPO program would verify that everything had been fully and properly repaired? I'd kind of like to know that it would pass that level of scrutiny before agreeing that all of the necessary repairs are well and truly "done". (*) - should I be worried that they got the exterior color wrong on the estimate?
