That's a shame. Where else did you get hit? I've had a lot of near misses myself in the last week, not counting the heat seeking shopping carts that always seem to be lurking, ugh...
Always first off the line, while all the cool people are still staring at their phones.

Bummer. It would be tough to match that with a junkyard door.

Try Erie Volvo- I bought a door that matched my S70 perfectly a few years ago. These accidents can actually be a blessing in disguise if you're willing to do the work. I believe the other person's insurance paid me like $1600...a door that worked cost about $500 shipped (I know higher than junk yard doors but I wanted it to be right!)...I ended up with a window, window actuator, and other parts as spares after the swap and it was an easy 20-30 minute replacement. In your case, you'll want to touch up right behind the door but it doesn't look dented or too scraped!

Even a large junkyard like Erie is not likely to have that color with the pinstriping, that's what I was referring to. But I agree give it a look, you never know what the options are until you look.
