I could just puke

Wrecked my car today. Over cooked a U-turn. Sand, slick road, who knows. Just slid right into a 15" curb. Broke the lower A-arm, bent just about everything undernieth. Even from inside the trunk it's bent up. Rim is badly rashed. Just mounted these wheels yesterday. Pride is some kinda hurt. The offending curb is Pictured.

sorry mike.
You will get her back together though...rear wheel drive sometimes isn't the best.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude, that fuggen sucks!!!!!!!!

Shit happens.

Insurance will take care of it.

Choosing the correct shop to repair is the most important thing you need to take care of.

DO NOT LET JUST ANY SHOP REPAIR.

Mine was done by STUGGART INTERNATIONAL.

They did an amazing job.

No way to tell that it recieved over $65K worth of repairs.

You will be suprised at how expensive it will be to repair.

I bet an easy $15K or more.

Again, sorry for your loss

ya ya ya...

I'm looking at it as a good chance to upgrade some parts. Gonna go with a Mark I GT3 front bumber. Should be sweet. $1k deductable will smart some, but dems the breaks.

Crispin- I have no doubt the repair bill will run up quickly. When it was up on the flatbed I got a good look undernieth. It's fuggggged up! I think you're $15k was a good ballpart figure.
