No, I'm going to file a claim with my insurance company... they will, in turn, sue the pants off of the valet company (well, recover damages anyway). If and when they win, that will pay my deductible.
If for some unknown reason, they don't win, I'll be stuck paying $500 (my deductable).
I thought about going to a bone yard for the parts... don't know how easy they would be to get out - mazda says it's $800 worth of labor to take out the broken and replace with new... I'll deffinitely look into it tho.
