    I posted a few weeks ago about my car being over the limit amount of the guy who hit me in a not at fault accident.

    I ultimately decided to go through my insurance and declare it a total based on the revised estimate after the disassembly and a 3+ month turnaround to get it back. The car was 5 of 36 months into the lease and I learned the lesson the hard way and paid $2K up front to my dealer when I leased to make my monthly payments lower. Since I hypothetically only used 5/36 of this prepayment, do I have any chance of recouping the remainder since I was not at fault (citation issued to validate my claim)? Can I take the driver who hit me to small claims court to try to recoup this?

    On another note, since everyone on this forum seems so knowledgable, I was told by Audi finance that my payments were for the month prior not the month going forward. If that's the case, why am I paying my dealer today to get a new lease and not 30 days from now when my first payment would be due?
