Lots.

Why don't you take the time to type what you intend to say instead of forcing everyone to translate your text language for your convenience? "That's just the way I write" is a dumbass excuse.

Good luck.

I think your car hit the deer not the other way round !!!

If a deer hit your car he would have just got up and walked away, maybe leaving a scratch.

With that damage I suspect the deer aint going any place any more.

Just go see a benz dealer monday they will give you a quote in 20 minutes.

You have insurance right? You are looking at several $1000's worth of repair and a damaged VIN (carfax/autocheck) report.

no one here can give you an answer w/o being an body shop adjuster and seeing the car. Do yourself a favor and get some estimates.

And don't be suprised if it is enough damage for the insurance company (if you have comprehensive) to want to total the car. By the way, in many states collison with an animal comes under your comprehensive coverage, NOT your collision.

Depends on the insurance company. I assume you are trying to hide this from insurance, as they would have already answered all of your questions.

The exact % Depends on the insurance company, but figure that once the repairs approach 60-75% of book value, your approaching total vs repair. And it doesn't take much to reach 10K in repairs. If air bags went off your almost guaranteed a total on a car that old.
