With all the damaged Elises, I've been thinking about which I would choose assuming the repair will make the clam shell as good as new.

My normal reaction is to have it replaced but I don't want to have something that's damage. The other consideration is, if I have it replaced, it will definitely drive the insurance rates up for the Elise in the future. Can you image how insurance companies are going to feel when they find out a 2 mph bump is going cost $3,000 to $5,000.

So, here's my question to all you. Given the repair is equal to a brand new shell,which would you prefer: repair or replace?
