    Unhappy Shiat...I've been hit :(

    Well, the V just took a T-bone from some lady in a hurry to the dr. in her rental car (because she had totalled hers two weeks ago).

    Phuq!

    She's at the dealer now and don't imagine I'll get her back for several weeks. The damage is to the passenger side rear qtr. panel and suspension/wheel...dammit...what a shiatty day

    My dad backed up and accidently scratched the bottom part of the front spoiler.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Glad to hear no one got hurt. I rue the day when that happens to me. With winter set in, it probably won't be long though. It's tough to make it a full season without getting rear-ended or T boned at least once after they get the Zamboni's out to polish the ice on our roads.

    Re: Shiat...I've been hit :(

    Got my first dent on Friday going home from work.
    Either someone threw something or something got kicked up from the road.
    Heard a big bang.
    Looked like someone walked on the side of my car with a golf shoe.
    RATS!
    Drove straight to Dent Wizard and parted with $125.
    Now just have a few paint dings to fill.

    Damn wild. That kinds sucks. And a happy holidays, too. Hopefully she'll be fixed as good as new in no time. Did any of your mods get toasted? Interesting to see how insurance handles that......(though maybe your exhaust was the only one at risk here?)

    Doesn't appear any mods are damaged (save for one GSD3) at this time. This might work out OK, albeit an inconvenience. Turns out one of the owners at the business next door was right behind me and can confirm that I did not run the red light.

    Also, a great time to get the dealer to install FG2 while it is there

    I'm guessing about $5K in damage though

    Too bad. As long as you are OK, there can be always a new V. Hope your car gets fixed fast and well.

    Don't know what to say. As anal as I am on taking care of my cars, it doesn't stop the idiots around you. Sometimes there's nothing you can do. Good luck.

    Re: Shiat...I've been hit :(

    If it means anything, my '03 was rear-ended pretty hard last week. Gang-Bangers in an '89 Acura weren't paying attention to the fact that traffic had come to a halt. I hate that feeling....looking in the rear view mirror and seeing what's coming; hearing the tires liquify, then the crash. And I was powerless to do anything. The bright side: Leasing. I told my sales lady at the dealership my tale of woe and she got me in to a new '05 with everything on it. My first Nav. system. I pick it up tomorrow.

    I think this lady ought to lose her liscense! Obviously she can't drive worth a F***. I bet it was her fault her car was totalled in the first place.

    Hope the car will be OK!

    Good luck.

    Ah crap Wild.

    On the bright side, you can have all the new mods out of their boxes and all arranged in the garage awaiting the V to come home. Just like a well tuned pit stop.

    Yeah, it is probably a good thing, actually (as I try to put a spin on my misfortune). At least she is at the dealer and the rear diff, center armrest, visor, A-pillar trim, recalls and FG2 can be taken of.

    Besides, I didn't really need the distraction right now (but will ReALLY need one in about 3 weeks!).

    It isn't really that bad, I don't think. Just F'ed up the alignment and possibly strut and/or suspension components on that corner. Plus the significant body damage - We'll see - the dealer hasn't called since I dropped her off at around lunch....
