    first day of my 4 day weekend. im taking my friend home on a street that is more of a highway with stop lights. speed limit was 55 and i was going it. as i apporached the intersection, this brand new altima started rolling into the intersection perpendicular to me. my light was green. i slammed on my brakes, but hit her rear driver side, she did at least a 360 spin. and of course, her car was hardly damaged. later we find out that shes drunk, and doesnt have insurince on her. because its a new car, so she says. my car had to be towed and the claims adjuster is looking at it right now. i think it looks horrible.

    theres the damage to my car. im actually hoping they total it so i can get a new one...a standard. what do you guys think?

    everyone is alright, and it was 100% her fault, so its gonna be fixed or totaled.

    that sucks man, sorry to hear :( ... glad everyone is ok though.. i bet they total the car, you better pull those teins off before the insurance company gets them :) hopefully you get some money for that car, i know when i totalled mine, i only got $4900, then had to buy it back for $1200 :(

    I'd sue her for any money you have to cough up yourself. Seems that without her being drunk you would have a perfectly normal car w/o any costs. Since she was tho, if you have to pay ANYTHING then sue her for that amount. I'd call a lawyer if I were you too, cause maybe your neck is really sore...... :D

    make sure you get your wheels too, if they do total it find out what they want for the car and buy it so you have a bunch of extra parts for your hatch.

    yep, and i think its illegal to take your parts off without their knowledge when it is a total loss... do you have your original suspension? hurry and throw that shit back on :)

    ya i have all stock parts that im gonna replace with the aftermarket ones i put on...

    their still not done with the estimate, but he said i need a new apron on the driverside, and that the shock tower is bent in. also i noticed where my driver side motor mount bolts to the car, its bent to where i can fit my finger between the metal and the mount...so ya...he thinks its totaled. yay.

    totaled means good news for me. i convinced my dad to let me get a new civ, and swap the gsr in it. :p

    waiting is a bitch.
