    My car has been in the shop for THREE weeks! I accidentally ran over a piece of truck tire that was lying on the interstate during a bad storm. Dented fuel tank, tore out wiring injured bumper and parts underneath etd.:Cry:

    Had to try for old parts first, get then approval for new when old weren't available. Rumor has it I will get it back tonight. I MISS MY PRI!

    Just be patience, at least you're approved to get new parts. :D
    New OEM parts are mostly coming from Japan, hence the long wait-time.
    So how much in costs we are talking about here for the damage you mentioned?

    Just curious: Did your insurance count this as a collision or comprehensive claim? You may have seen my fire thread. I was told if I had hit a deer in the highway it was comprehensive. If I hit a mattress in the highway it was collision. The deductible cost was $400 more; I don't know yet if they'll count it against me on premium.

    Hope you got your Pri back now!

    I ran over something with feathers on a rainy dark night and the molding under the door on the passenger side got loose. The dealer ordered "clips" and clipped it up for me.

    I was glad it wasn't too serious (for me anyway, the bird didn't do so well.)
