So, someone clipped my Mustang today
Hi all. Long story short, some clipped my car today on the passenger side, but due to traffic, I was basically stuck, and they didnt bother stopping. They were in a big ass SUV, but, happened so fast I couldnt get a plate/etc. I was stationary in the left turn lane, with cars in front of/behind me. I pulled into the gas station in case he was turning around at the next light(he slowed when he hit me so I thought maybe he'd do the right thing), waited there for 30 minutes, nothing.
I am in Boston for work for a few months, so I called the local PD, they said nothing to be done, call your insurance and file a claim. My question is, does anyone know roughly what it would cost me to get this fixed? I don't want to go file a claim and run the risk of raising my insurance if its less than my deductible. Basically, the paint is scuffed/damaged above the rear passenger wheel well, and the mirror was knocked off(it's still attached- but the top portion is detached, I'm attaching pics). Mirror looks like it could just be gorilla glued lol(I'm not going to-but, it isnt like its in pieces-when i hold it up it seats perfectly and looks great, just wont stay on).
Would a touch up (a good one) and repairing my mirror be over 500 bucks? I'm just hesitant to call it in if in fact I end up paying it all out of pocket anyway, and i end up with a higher insurance rate. Thoughts?
I'm trying not to be too angry, but I love this car and I worked hard for it, and it's so damn frustrating. Thanks!
EDIT-Not sure where my head was at. My deductible is a grand. So, chances are it'd be less than that to get it fixed but who knows.
