It will probably go up to $10,000-12,000 when its all done.

I spoke with Trade Secret but they have a really long wait.
Only the hood? Wow. I find that hard to believe. Are all of your dents on flat surfaces? Those M3 CF roofs are hella expensive, too (especially labor since roofs have to be cut/welded off) :/ Hope you don't end up going out of pocket too much. I know insurance can be slow to pay for adjusted claims.

Also, I believe Allstate recently purchased Esurance so I would be wary if this is the case. I have not been pleased with Allstate at all. So far their only saving grace has been that customer service has been friendly and considerate when you can actually get someone on the phone (then again, that's kind of their job). I had Nationwide a few years ago and they are absolute crap. Just horrible in every way, so it could be worse I guess.
