Soccer mom bashes Boxster and doesn't notice!

Just a bit miffed to come out of the arena to find someone had obviously backed their SUV into my car hard enough to smash the rear light and bumper, and to push it over the curb! But I guess they didn't notice...

So I call the insurance and the agent asks me if I really wanted to make a claim. My wife had an accident in the Kia a couple of years back and it seems that if I claim this one, it might impact my rates for the next 5 years, and if ever I should have a more serious accident in the future, they could catagorize me as a repeat offender or something!
Looks like it's crazy glue for the lens and there's a bumper cover on e-bay...
Will an 03-04 cover fit on my 01 ?

I had this happen to me recently. I filed a police report, under hit and run. My insurance company filed it under the uninsured/under insured part of my policy so no future impact to me.

I live in Quebec which has a no-fault system of insurance. The up side is that you are always covered, no matter what. The downside is that you are always a little bit responsible. If you make a claim, your insuramce pays. If your insurance pays, they like you less...
