    I literally have nightmares about that. And my version certainly doesn't include waiting for someone's insurance.

    I would have used all kinds of special words myself.

    It was sleepy. My BMW does that occasionally.

    Major suck, sad to see.
    I guess you have their insurance, at least they did not hit and run.

    This happened to me last year, someone knocked my 6 Gen over in the parking lot of where I was working. His company insurance covered it as it was a company vehicle. Hopefully his insurance will cover everything.

    I agree will all above! Shitty bad luck. Probably a truck or a SUV. You cant see out of those things. Best of luck.

    Small SUV and lady in her 70's.

    Estimate is $2,431.31

    Does anyone have any experience with the Ebay aftermarket fairing kits?

    Debating on changing color, thinking about block-offs and bar end mirrors.

    That's a lot of money to work with since I can do it all myself.

    My damage came out to ~$2800.00. Note that the front sub-frame was bent in the fall, so be sure to check that. If the insurance company is going to pay for it, stay with OEM fairings, almost every story of eBay fairing kits is the same..."They look OK but had trouble fitting them..."

    I would be cautious of this site. I have a feeling that they just import the same Chinese stuff you see on ebay. I was looking at if they had any 2014 body and they do not. That is not a big thing since I do not need it but the repsol thing intrigued me. I would call them and ask where they get the body work or if they produce it themselves. just a FYI. Good luck.

    had the same thing happen to mine 2 weeks ago, watched it happen as I was sitting at a window booth at subway so I could see it. needless to say I was not happy. submitted a estimate with his insurance company this week through local Honda dealership (where I happen to be the tech) labor and all new fairings came to just shy of $5300. I figure it will take them a few days to choke that down. I told them when they called before the estimate was submitted that under no circumstances would I accept anything less then perfect and would not sign off on a salvage title. they said no problem and would get it fixed up for me, we will see
