Sometimes you just have to recognize a lost cause. Is it worth the time and frustration?

Hey, hot rod, their ain't nutten wrong with the OEM clutch and pressure plate for average driving. If you have messed up your clutch, by driving on the wrong side of the road, I suggest you have them just replace the clutch and pressure plate with OEM. Their is a good chance the flywheel is OK, they might want to sand it down a bit -

Don't forget the updated TOB!

Out of the country? Where you off to, the French Riviera? After all, it has been a long, damp winter, you deserve a break -

@Ultramaroon given that I am faultless and have justified recourse with this guy, I'm not exactly willing to let it go. My bumper doesn't fit right anymore, and the damage is 100% noticable. If it was less severe damage, I'd be ok with letting it go. Since the paint is cracked around where the dent was, and since the flat part near where the trunk closes is split, I definitely want it replace.

@humfrz the guy was super apologetic, and morally I'm not alright with having him (well his insurance) on the hook for something I did myself. Dude made a mistake, I'm not hurt and the car is repairable. I'm learning how to forgive and forget, slowly but surely.

I'll upload some pictures once I get Tapatalk back

Yeah, if mine was any more noticeable I'm sure I would've followed through. Even now I get a little butthurt every time I wash & wax around the nicks. :/

This is why I'm not letting it go:

I like soundman's advice more than the reading part. Reading is very unlikely to happen.

Also, I forgot to quote him, but whoever was talking about the washer fluid reservoir made me want to ask if anyone knows why the spray nozzles sputter foam instead of actually spraying the windshield. I cannot presently clean my windshield because the pitiful thing just spits foam into the plastic.
