Damn things been at the bodyshop since mid-December after getting hit on the way to my company christmas party, supposed to be delivered today or tomorrow after many weeks of "Saturday" "Next Wednesday" etc etc

Pretty stoked on it though, its going to come out with ecodes (set of those was only $150 more than ONE headlight that insurance paid for) and the guy is painting my lowers with the extra paint from the front end... it'll be worth it.. Im just SICK of driving this damn Chrysler 300 flying pig!

I hate how shops always over promise. Give me a realistic time expectation. This is your job. You do this everyday. My car is supposed to be done today may not be ready till friday. Only two days but who knows what they'll tell me then.

I drove by today... cars sitting there... no hood, no fenders, no bumper, no headlights, lowers unpainted... looks like Wednesdays out! Thursday/Friday is looking grim too..

Guy told me 1 week... i always say "double time double price" but its been almost a month now... this sucks.

Auto Insurance told the bodyshop they won't pay for my rental past Saturday, Enterprise says they want their 300 back, and the bodyshop says insurance won't return his phone calls.... Sounds like a cluster fu** waiting to happen

why is he calling the ins ddnt they give you the check.
The check goes to you! You then cash it and pay him when he is finished unless part money is needed.
I usually try to tip if my pockets allow but his went out the window with all this friggin waiting...
Hopefully you can get your car back. lining up panels and painting is the only thing that should take the bulk of the time. Start pressuring him to finish or the rental money is coming out of his pay. (Be firm but not nasty)

I don't know if its CA law or what... but insurance is paying him directly... they aren't paying me?

I'm getting the car tomorrow... only thing that has me pissed at this point is A) dipshit forgot to paint my lowers so I told him not to do them and B) Insurance found out (from him) that I bought Ecodes for $490. Instead of paying me the $350 the dealership wanted for a headlight and corner (so I'd be getting ecodes for $140) Insurance now says they are only paying me $245 for ONE ecode, because their client only smashed my PASSENGER side.

I just want my car back now.

tell your stupid ass body man not to discuss anything with the ins adjuster with out your consent unless its about delivery of the funds... That body man needs 3 consecutive swift kicks to the gonads...
