    It was raining the past week in Phoenix/Scottsdale, and while I'd like to make fun of the drivers, it was I who got into an accident. There was a jeep crossover in front of me, someone cut her off and slammed on their brakes, she slammed on hers, and I followed suit, but it wasn't enough. We pulled over and there was no damage to her car. She hugged me and went on her way. Which is technically good for me, but I do still have damage, albeit as minimal as I could have hoped for. I hit the bottom panel of her car/bumper, which was black plastic. There's some scuffing on the paint, but it looks like an easy buff - my finger can rub it off. However, the panel that's adjacent to the grill is pretty banged up. I can obviously take it in, but I'm wondering if there are any locals who have recommendations/connections? It could have been so much worse, but it hurts to look at.

    Obviously I have no issue going to the dealership, but just wondering if anyone has any other options that may be cost effective. Thank you!
