    I got my baby back

    While at a friends house, sitting in his new Lexus he proudly demonstrates the backup camera, I see a beautiful image of my baby (2002, 3.0 roadster) sitting about 40 feet back. He offers to take me for a ride, and, and, and wait for it... backs into my baby. Crunch! The passenger side of the bumper is out of alignment, the marker light sways in the breeze, scratches, scratches, scratches everywhere. My heart is bleeding all over his new Lexus luxury interior. He immediately says, get it fixed and send me the bill. Very nice.

    So I got it back ($780) later and it looks and drives great! Not that there was any damage that would have effected the drivability. But, I've been driving my wife's 2005 Camry. I was lulled in to a state of floating across the blacktop. Although on a long drive I would not mind the mindlessness of driving an automatic trans Camry, when I got back into my Z3, OMG it was so tight, turn wheel get response, tons of feedback, and the fun factor was back. Top down, 68 degrees, country roads, sunsetting, wonderful!

    You don't know what you got til it's gone.

    LOL (while crying, believe me).

    You know if you had video from that backup cam of him backing into your car... priceless.

    Glad he made good!

    Which shop did the body work?

    I assume it was satisfactory.

    They also repaired my previous Z3 after a run-in or actually a run-over with a deer. Very nice folks to do business with. Ask for Muggs.

    Good to have a name of a decent body shop before you need it.
