I think i need:
- Driver Side Mirror
- Entire Rear drive Side taillight/taillight assembly
- Some touch up paint to match my color, midnight blue

Couple questions:
-Im not sure what to do about the quarter panel, do i take it to a body shop and get it fixed or do i order a new one? how hard would that be to install?
-Can you tell from the picture what parts of the mirror I need? is it just the main piece or is it also the part that conencts to the car

Ways you can help me:
-Answer/help me with the above questions
-Help me find the stuff I need (listed above)

Wow that sucks... Good to hear your fixing it quickly though..

From what I can see, it looks like you only need the piece connecting to the mirror not the whole peice...

Touch up paint would be good too!!

Good luck.

Not to be a Stromer, but damn son.. were you drunk ??

J/k


The mirror and light shouldn't be much of an issue.

The panel however, I'd have professionally repaired. Your door will most likely need a repaint.. no touch up on that. Look to spend about $450- 650 for the door and panel repaired and painted.

Time to get some quotes my man.. im really sorry to hear about that.

How the hell did you end up scraping the whole side of your car?

I would think you'd stop right after you felt it hit. Where have you been anyways dude?

Christ man!!! Not to be a downer... but I would expect more like 1000-1200 for the repair to the door and quarter panel if you have a shop do all of the work, it ain't cheap to have a 1/4 straightened and have a door smoothed out. Look for a reputable shop to do the work if you want it to last, if you don't care about the quality just go to Maaco and have them "fix" it for a cheap price.

If alcohol was involved then I feel for you...I've been there, just learn from the mistake, and if you were sober then I dunno just be more careful!!!

thats understandable...anyway, you shouldn't need to replace the 1/4 panel, that can easily be straightened by a good body man, and that will save you quite a bit of $$$

dont you think thats a little ass-backwards?

If alcohol would have been involved, my sympathy would be non-existant. I was almost killed by a drunk driver.... Anyone who drinks and gets behind the wheel has it coming to them, and I hope for them the only person they fuck is themselves.

Drunk driving = my number one pet peave. Anyone who does it can frankly piss off in my opinion. Man up and pay for a cab...if not for yourself, then for the other life you might destroy with your negligence.

Dan your looking at a pretty expensive repair.
I had something like that except it was only the 1/4 panel (friend and 4 wheeler)and it was a huge dent----$900

For the paint, the taillight, mirror, and all the fixin with the dent your looking at at least a grand probably more.

Also I am pretty sure that you have to get a 1/4 panel fixed by a body shop because its part of the whole body, not just a piece that can be taken off like a door or bumper.(in 9000's its not a part that is easily replaced, cutting out the panel welding in a new one = too much time and money)

Good luck tho..

I agree with BluAero here... you need a mirror and taillight, obviously Saab parts are a bitch to replace because they're so expensive. Now, consider that panel. There's a very very very fine line in that that's got to be all pounded out by hand - someone's going to have to spend HOURS on that thing to get it all right. My brother just had the SAME repair done on the same side of his Nissan Maxima because he actually backed into a tree at my house... He had a LOT of work done besides this, and a family friend did it at his private shop... car now looks better than it did before the accident... but he spent like 1300 dollars. I'd say go to some yards and try to find the panel and have it painted - maybe you can get it for a few hundred dollars, do some of the prep work yourself and then just have it sprayed... that panel will cost at least a grand to fix.

You should work on this too lol

I feel for you though, a couple of weeks ago I did the EXACT same thing minus the ABS. Actually minus the braking too lol. I was exhausted it was my mom's boyfriend's brand new 06 Chevy truck BLACK and it was pitch black outside and even though I saw the truck I just didn't register it until a split second when I backed up. Oh....BAM....shit. My damage was a little less tho
