It happens more than people think. Just bring it back and tell them what happened ask for an estimate, ask for cheapest price, cash deal.

heres the part I don't get

you have a courtesy car from an autobody shop, which means through some sort of incident, you have chosen to take your car to that shop and they gave you a courtesy car. after smashing the shit out of the courtesy car, you want to get it fixed somewhere else?

if you don't trust the place to fix the courtesy car without ripping you off, why did you pick them in the first place?

^ Maybe cause they can take advantage of the situation they're in since you have to pay or fix it anyways to charge you abnormally more?

Ya I know it definitely sounds weird but there's a lot more story behind it which I'm not gonna do into detail. Basically I sort of had no choice and had to just pick that auto body shop right on the spot.

Edit: Either way I'm just gonna tell them truthfully what happened. Thanks for the replies guys

Just man up, and take the car back.

Explain what happened, and take your lumps. Chances are they'll do a cash deal for the damage you caused.

Chalk this up to a hard learned life lesson.

**Noticed your edit after I posted. That's the right call
