I'm happy for you. It must feel even better for you now than it was when you first got the car.

P.S. How is it? I know shops can be hit and miss from some personal experiences. Does it look the same/drive the same? I actually had a '97 jetta come back from the shop after an accident that drove better - much better handling.

yeah there were some ups and downs with the car... it looks great! just like new but they didnt replace the front passanger side wheel so the car still shakes at excessive speed (bent rim) and they didnt fully screw back on the passanger headlight... so i took it to the shop the other day and they ordered the rim and screwed the headlight back on but hit something in the back so now the actually light shines down instead of straight... so yeah... i think they ordered a new headlight also haha.

I dont get mine back for another week. :'( I still have to drive this shitty g6 around... I still havent had much luck finding info to arm myself with when I talk to insurance company of the chick who rear ended me... they will pay for my loss of value, but this car is so new I have nothing to base the current value on....
