      Just because she didn't have adequate insurance, doesn't mean the shop should overcharge her.

        Correct, she was stupid for not having full insurance coverage, but apparently the car wasn't financed if she only had liability. Maybe she had the car in storage and couldn't resist taking it out for a spin around the block. Bad idea, and an expensive one, but that's still no reason for the shop to change its estimate from $24,000 to $100,000+.

          Are they supposed to give a substandard repair and get sued when the silly sideways cunt kills someone with it?

          An initial repair estimate a few days later rang in at around $24,000, before rising, under closer inspection to nearer $100,000 in January of last year.

            So this "luxury bodyshop", recommended by the Aston dealership estimated repairs at $24,000, but didn't know a pair of rotors cost $30,000? Now they're holding the car hostage. Sounds legit.

                Good to see that your Gunzen lessons are starting to pay off. Rather than have a civil discussion, resort to juvenile name calling. I've worked on and restored more cars (many very high end) than you've ever driven.

                  having driven the stunning limited edition — only 100 were made — for only a few kilometres before she inexplicably veered off the road and hit a large stone near Blundell and Garden City roads in December 2015.
                  I just reread the story, and saw this bit of information. The stupid fucking chink can't drive for shit, and shouldn't be allowed drive at all, let alone insure and drive a $300 k car. Inexplicably veered off the road?!?!? Get the fuck outta here. Garden City and Blundell is a regular intersection. It's not like it's a rural area that's hazardous to navigate. I'm betting she was either texting, or yammering on her cell phone, and not paying attention, when the accident happened.

                    Why didn't she call her insurance company, and have them take care of it?

                      Did you read the article? Basic liability

                        Then you know Aston Martin is the only source for parts and they can charge whatever they please.

                          If she was licensed, insured and legally owned the car, why should she not be allowed to drive at all? Maybe she was texting, or talking, or tuning the radio. Maybe she ws just trying to figure out the gadgets on her new high dollar toy and it got away from her. What's your point? She had a wreck like thousands of others do every day.

                            And the high dollar repair shop they sent her to should have known that before writing a low ball estimate.

                              It happens. that's part of owning a car. you take it in, they eyeball it and give you an estimate of only what they can see. then you pay them to get in there, take shit apart and figure out the extent of the damages. then they call you back if the initial quote didn't encompass the full extent of the damage.

                                I used to make the headlights for the Aston Martin vanquish line and base cost to us was 2300/ lamp. I can see the replacement part going to 3x the cost by the time it gets to the parts counter. It's sad, but the reality of buying parts at the stealership.
