^ should be dry for the next few days, can't speak for 45 between here and there though.

(time to make some Lemonade) For those people that do end up getting checks from their ins. cos., I know where you can get a nice montego blue coupe... (' ' ) ( ' ')

No prob man. I remember a hail storm that blew threw plano a while back and it was maybe the 2nd time my car was at classic for service. I woke up the next morning at 6am and just kept calling until i finally got ahold of a used car salesman. I just remember that night i kept thinking the worst picturing my car looking like the op's car.

Yeah, I know. I do have a garage -- the storm was totally unexpected (just a minor thunderstorm predicted, no mention of hail). I'd left the cars out because we were planning on going back out after dinner, and had just stopped back by the house quickly when it hit. By the time we figured out what was happening it was too late. Hailstorms like this aren't typical. We do get hail, but I've never seen anything like this. This was some 2012 shit. I'll post some photos of the neighborhood in a bit -- it looks like a hurricane hit. Emergency vehicles were having a hard time getting down the streets around here. I walked a couple blocks with the dogs this morning and counted at least 25 cars with enough damage to total them. Some people without comprehensive coverage were standing by their cars just in shock :\ My parents live nearby and both of theirs were totaled, too. Part of their roof is also gone.

After looking at the car again this morning, I am 99% sure it's totaled. I am beyond sad about this, as my car was (is) my baby, and having to watch it happen made it worse. On the bright side (because there is always a bright side), maybe I'll get a 335is next, or an M3.

Also, I should mention that I'll be returning the car back to stock before the adjuster comes out. I'm holding on to the parts until I figure out what car I'm getting next, but if I go the M3 route I will be parting out mods. Let me know if anyone wants dibs on anything. I don't have the stock wheels, so the current wheels have to go with the car (unless someone wants to swap, but one of the wheels is bad anyway so you probably don't want 'em).

wow. i probably would have grabbed something to cover my head and then gotten in the cars and driven into the garage myself...either that or throw a mattress out on it.

side note: interesting article about how hail forms - never knew but wondered why it was always late in the afternoon close to when i get off work...

I had the couch cushions pulled and ready to go on top of the car. Everything happened so fast that by the time they were out there, all of the damage had already been done so I didn't bother.

It's raining here now and it should last into the evening, no hail though. EDIT: Ok, in an hour the forecast has changed, its stopped raining and now they are saying mostly clear.

Claire, that sucks, hope everything works out for you.

Here's mine.



Progressive is going to take a look at it on Sunday. I think the entire process is going to take 10-12 weeks.

I've been getting estimates for some non-hail bodywork from shops in the area. For everyone that needs hail repair I'd say not to hold your breath. Classic said they were still processing claims from the *last* round of hail and they're about 2 months out. All the other places I went are swamped too. Most won't even take walk-ups if it's for hail damage.

Yeah. I have my name on the hail damage waiting list at Trade Secret in case Allstate doesn't total my car.

Damn, that sucks I feel your pain.
Was it just the hood/windshield, or did the rest of the car take a hit too?

Pretty much the entire car got it. I think only the front bumper and fenders are undamaged.
