As far as cost is concerned I could care less. That is what insurance is for. What I am concerned about is getting a quality repair.
I understand. Body work and paint can be tricky, especially on our cars. Have you contacted Dennis out in St. Charles?

If not done right it will come back in a few months after being painted. Just make sure you don't cut corners or you may end up paying twice. Very tricky from what i've been told.

Repair the glass and just CF Vinyl Wrap the lower portion of the will look nice and also protect it from more chips (prone area) and save money (no $$$ Paint/blending)
