Sorry, man- that totally sucks!! :-(
Did you come through unscathed? That's the important thing..
What do you think of the "safety" as far as airbags, side beams, etc?

As far as safety wen everything worked put well not a scratch gt hit by the side curtain airbag but that was the worst thing I would give it five stars i got hit from a dead stop while she was google atleast 40 50 andni had a passanger we both walked away Fine so even if it was totaled I would of got another one never felt safer jus hope to get my car back soon

Bro, make sure you point out to the adjuster that there is no gap all the way to the end where the trunk is!!! your car is very close to totalled... your doors, side airbags, curtain bags, seats, door pillars,,, all done,, If its not totalled, make sure they pay for all oem parts only!!! Kinda stupid to get hit and then it gets fixed with used or aftermarket parts,,, tell them this, would you like it if I chopped off your leg and just say that I'll glue it back for you and put a band-aid over the boo boo??

what??? they didnt totalled this car??? I dunno bro,, this car will never feel the same afterwards... better be careful,, some bodyshops have hook-ups with the adjuster,,, they give it a very light estimate up front so the cars not totalled.. then afterwards, they order the parts you need and rip apart your car to find ALOT more damages inside and call for a supplement,, by that time it is clear that the car should have been totalled in the beginning but since they already have parts ordered and already started working on your car,, they have to continue with their project... "trust me,, I've seen my buddy do this at his bodyshop" Samething happened to a buddys brand new bmw... original shop said $13k in damage,, toweed it to another shop and it was declared total at the second shop... tell me how you jump from $13k in damage to totalling out a $44k 8 month old 328xi????

Bro make sure they get it totaled! fight for it as much as you can. I wouldn't let them fix it. The important is that you're fine. From what I can see is that you'll be much better off totaling it. Good luck man

yeah,, its bs,,, no way that thing isnt totalled... Im telling you, they are trying to pull some shady shit... dude,, like you said, the damn drivers seat is already $5k,,, 2 doors,, door pillar, gotta have some kinda rail damage, the roofs gotta be somewhat kinked,, quarters, doglegs,, side airbags,,, insane if you ask me... heres the trick,, ask your local lexus dealer,, which bodyshop they recommend and use,, tow it there and have their shop look at it... Im pretty sure, you will get new lexus doors, new everything oem,, oem... and the price will definitely bring it to near total!!! Thats what we did with my buddies 328xi. and it was totalled

I'd agree on declaring it a total loss. I had a similar accident, but with my 4 Runner, and my left front tire was torn off and the whole frame twisted. The dealership didn't declare it a total loss, which is BS. So I just traded it in for a new vehicle. I lost a lot of money, but at least I'm driving a better and safer vehicle, which matters most.

On a lighter note, wasn't someone needing a bumper hole cover? There are two of them blown out of his rear bumper :)

My two cents, which is more of the same.... Insist on "total loss" for your F. It's just not f'n cool for them to try and repair it. Itwill NEVER be the same, believe us. If not, bite the bullet and try to get whatever is fair value.
