    $1500 in parts, $5000 in labor. Aout 30 hours of labor. Engine/transmission out job.


    Re: What are the chances? Fuck... :(

    Relative the the price of the car, the amount is acceptable

    Since it's a engine out job, you might as well piggy pack some mods, say exhaust and/or turbo tuning etc.

     

     


    Re: What are the chances? Fuck... :(

    Yeah, now the question is, do I want them to add anything or mod anything while the engine is out. I haven't really seen any desirable mods, so I'm leaning towards no.

    Apparently, McLaren haven't accepted liability!

    I am surprised they didn't give the benefit of doubt to customer willing to experiment with their new car brand and asked for money! It is a trivial amount that they should readily cover.

    I never expected them to. Most likely caused by an animal. Why would the pay for it?

    Most likely but not definitely. A goodwill payment makes good customer relations sense, IMO.

    Have you asked your insurance?? Smiley

    In Germany there is a chance that a car-insurance covers these kind of animal-damages (Marderschaden).

    Yes, I'm assuming it's covered by my comprehensive coverage. We have collision, liability, and comprehensive. Comprehensive is usually the coverage that is related to, well, non-collision. So things like weather, fire, theft, etc.

    I assume that if a bear walked up and chewed off my mirror, it would be covered, and as such I expect if an animal eats part of my engine heat shield it is covered.

    Given the absurd premium we pay in my state to insure these cars and my lack of claims over the years, I'd be raising hell if they don't cover it.
