    What's "T-Cut" mean?

    Also, does anyone know what the chances are that I'll get the door and quarter panel replaced, and not repaired? I'm not too keen on keeping the fked up parts, since the door is no longer properly aligned.

    They'll probably repair it like my mechanic is doing

    If its a lease then are you driving on their insurance or your own? if it is yours the cheque should come back to you. Contact the insurance and get a quote and see if they will pursue the other persons insurance - maybe they will get you a rental but i doubt it as normally that comes as part of your policy. Give the police a ring and see whats going on.

    T-cut is an abrasive paste that you can use to buff out light scratches and is useful in getting rid of black marks of people bumpers or other peoples paint.

    Got the police report. Plain and simple description accident description: "VEH #1 SIDESWIPED VEH # 2. OFFICER DID NOT WITNESS."

    I'll see if I can track down the other guy's insurance after I get a preliminary estimate. Looks like he might have one of those "bargain" insurance carriers, since I can't find out who his carrier is via the insurance code # on the accident report. I'll have to call the DMV tomorrow and find out what company it is.

    ALWAYS GET THE OTHER PARTIES INSURANCE DETAILS AT THE SCENE - EVEN IF IT JUST THE COMPANY NAME, THEIR REG. AND NAME AND ADDRESS!!!!!

    The Police might be able to give them to you

    Waitttt I didn't call his car an 03 cobra. I was just asking for his wheels! I meant it as a joke, as in his car being totaled and parting it out... anyways it's not a good joke if you gotta explain yourself as much as I did

    Ok, I should have looked a little harder. Here is the NYS DMV insurance code lookup site: http://www.ins.state.ny.us/dmvindex.htm
