Apparently Mercedes has a "replacement" rivet that is literally a pop rivet for 1.90 each. Still, well over $400 for the rivets to do this rear body panel.

I don't believe the insurance company can legally own the body shop where they would have their insured cars repaired, at least here in California. I seem to remember something about this in the past where it was put into law, I may be wrong, I was once.
