Do you have an estimate for the rear fender panel repair? That's painful looking. :confused:
Sorry - should have taken a pic of the other side!
Fixing the rear panel gouge has not been a priority for me yet - I have had so many other issues since I bought this car in 2018. First I had to replace all 4 tires, then fix a front bumper I damaged on a curb, replace the front headlight assemblies, and then replace the wheels and tires. It has not really been a "fun ride" for me.

This is the bad part about buying a used car.
You just never know for sure what exactly you'll find that needs fixed after you buy.

I purchased my Regal in August of 2019 and I needed a Battery and the Drivers Side Heated
Seat fixed right away in October.

The Two Rims on the Drivers Side are damaged, curb rash, one has a couple chunks taken out of it.
Who ever owned my car before me loved those curbs.
Replacing the Rims has been on my list for over a year and I still haven't gotten them replaced.
They aren't having a problem holding air, so it's not a high priority, yet!
I might get around to them in early Spring of 2021?
I can pick up New Rims that match the Stock Rims for about $80ea. shipped, but I think I want a nicer set.
I will purchase a couple if needed before spring!

Then there was the almost $3000 for the Strut, Strut Mounts, Stabilizer Links and an Oil Pan Leak, but this
was all covered by the warranty I purchased when buying my Regal!
I did pay $2700 for the Warranty, so guess it's paid for itself and I still have 2 more years on the warranty.

These were thing that really didn't need to be done!
I did pay close to $1000 to upgrade the HMI and Radio Module so I'd have Car Play and Android Auto.
There were also the little things I did like changing the Headlights, Fog Lights and DRL's to LED Lights.
I also changed the Puddle Lights to the Buick Emblem Puddle Lights.
I hanged the Pedals, adding the matching Dead Pedal.

Anyway, sure hope things get better for you with your Regal.

Had a really nice day today and decided to give my car a good cleaning.
Took quite a while to get it all done, but it was well worth it!

Washed
Dried
Wiped Down the Interior
Vacuumed
Wiped down the Door Jams and Doors
Armor All'ed Tires
Waxed
Applied Rain-X to the Windows

BTW, In Mid-April in this post I talked about my wife's 2013 GMC Terrain with a 2.4L and it Burning Oil.
Well, the study is finally complete and her SUV goes in on Thursday to have the Piston and Rings Replaced.
They will look over the engine and repair any damage that may have been caused by it Burning Oil when it's there this week.

Been on a roll, exploring the Portland, OR area as I just recently moved from NorCal. Visited what's thought to be the longest active railroad trestle in the US, Holcomb Creek Trestle. PXL_20201016_190417948.jpg

Malo83,
Sure wish you'd stop posting Pictures of your GS in Black Cherry Metallic. ;)
I just absolutely love that color!

A Local Dealership has a 2017 Buick Regal Premium II in that Black Cherry Metallic
and seeing yours is really tempting me to go over and see what kind of deal I could
make with them.
It's a 1 Owner Car with 39,110 miles, a bit pricy at $19,175.
I'm sure it includes a good Warranty and Car Washes for life!

Sure could use those Car Washes right now, too cold outside to wash my car myself and
there's just so much Salt on our roads.
We still have about a foot of snow on the ground although it is starting to melt.

The Sun was out and we did manage to get up to around 46° today so I decided to
go outside and play.
I vacuumed my wife's 2013 GMC Terrain out then moved on to my 2015 Regal.
My Regal wasn't that dirty inside but I did sweep a few areas .

After sweeping both cars I took my wife's SUV to the Dealership for a washing, she has
free washes for life.
Looks like everyone else had the same idea, the line was pretty long and it was about a
45 minute wait in line.
After the wash I pulled over into the Dealerships lot, then took my Detail Towel and wiped
her SUV down, removing all the exterior drips.
I opened the doors and tailgate and wiped down the door frame so the doors wouldn't
freeze shut tonight.

Finally I was home grabbing my Regal, off to the Car Wash.
I had to go to a good local Car Wash and not the Dealership, I don't have Free Car Washes. :(
I got thru this car wash much quicker, only took about 10 minutes.
Got the Underbody wash to get all that nasty salt off!
I pulled over into the Parking lot and wiped my car down just like I did with my wife's.
The Sun was gone and the clouds had moved in before I even got my car to the car wash.
With the wind blowing it surely wasn't feeling like it was 46°.

Boy, both vehicles look so much better after a good wash!

Working on replacing the front speakers. Hopefully I'll get that finished up on Sunday. Bought another pair of speaker adapters for the rear doors. Hoping to get that done next weekend. I'll also be adding some tweeters to the back doors as well.

Finished installing the speakers, definitely sounds a lot better considering that the right front was blown previously. I also washed it and installed the spare tire kit.

Malo83,
Hope you realize that I was joking about not posting more pics of your Regal GS?
I also love seeing those Palm Trees and Sunshine, neither of which we have here!

We did make it up to 63° here yesterday, but today we are back down under 40°.
We also had some Snow Flurries earlier this afternoon.
The flurries were happening while I was over at that Dealership looking at the 2017
Regal Premium II in Black Cherry Metallic.
At the Dealership is was marked at $18,225 instead of the $19,175 it is online.
I was really having trouble telling that it was the Black Cherry Metallic with our overcast skies.
Like my car (Dark Sapphire Metallic), it too looked Black!

Replaced the HK speakers in the rear doors with some JBL components I had in the closet from a previous car. It sounds so much better and more clear. I also ordered CDT subs to replace the ones I have right now that are blown out.

I rotated my tires today at home. I also did sustain a minor injury while trying to take off a lug nut on the back passenger tire.

Somehow I broke my lug wrench, and that forced all my momentum, nose first, into the rear fender, right above the wheelwell. o_O:LOL:

My eyes watered a bit after that one, lol. Somehow there was no blood.

You must have wanted the exercise. My dealer rotates the tires for free with the $49 oil change. Hope you get better.
