This is mildly terrifying.

Let's say you have a Kia K900 which costs $46,000.

A Kia that costs $46,000?!

Okay, okay, calm down, it's Kia's luxury car that shares a lot
with the Kia Stinger and Genesis G80. And like luxury cars these
days it comes stuffed to the gills with all sorts of whoops and
doodads and thingees and hoohas and sensors and air fresheners
that cover up the smell of your farts, you get the idea. Now all
that is well and good, but there is an unexpected downside.*

Anyway, let's say you are out toodling around and there is some
unpleasantness the result of which is what the insurance company
terms a "minor left corner front hit."

Okay, that's not THAT bad, you think to yourself, and then you get
to the dealer/repair shop and get the bill and WHAT THE FUCK?!!
$34,000!!!! I could nearly buy another Kia K900. Are you fucking
kidding me?!

Sadly no.

The reason for this atrocity of a repair bill is all those
aforementioned doodads and hoohas and thingees and sensors. Ain't
technology grand?

*Should it really be unexpected though? I think not.
