Greetings to all. Worst nightmare happened, in that my Model X, at only 3 1/2 months old, had an idiot run into the back of it. About $6-7,000 of damage to the X. His Dodge Magnum is probably written off which serves hime right for trying to push 5,650 lbs of Tesla (and me!) out of his way!
Question is though, if this has happened to others in our group, how much did the other guy's Insurance company pay for the "Diminished Value" claim? The bodyshop that has my X (for at least a month they say, but that's another issue) have a appraiser to whom they will refer me when I finally pick up my repaired X. But I have no idea for how much I should expect to negotiate.
Any thoughts? It is a 2018 X 100D with 12,114 miles (In 3 1/2 months. Yes I know, but I LOVE driving it!)
