    Crashed my V Coupe...Pics here...

    Here are some pics from the accident I got into this morning. It was a 4 car pile up on the 101 freeway here in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. I was the number 4 car in the accident. I saw that the accident had occurred and I slammed on my brakes as hard as I could which caused my car to pull severly to the right hitting a concrete highway barrier. My car bounced off the barrier or should I say my right front wheel bounced off the barrier and I hit the car in front of me at around 15 MPH. What really sucks is that I just bought a new right front wheel after it was damaged by a pothole. I was surprised this much damaged happened at that low of speed. The car I hit had a metal bike rack on the back of his mini-van which is most likely what caused the damage to the front end of my car. The car took the impact pretty well as I am only sore right now. No airbag deployment. It could have been much worse. Good thing I have a great insurance policy and I am dropping the car off at a local custom body shop to get repaired. They were able to match the black diamond paint as they just did a black diamond V Wagon a couple weeks ago. I will miss not having my V while it's being repaired, but I guess shit happens!

    Here are the pics:

    At least you're doing OK. Could happen to any of us at any time. Poor car! Good luck with the fix.

    I am surprised that a performance car like the V would go sideways because the brakes locked - no abs?

    It doesn't look that bad. Good luck getting the black diamond blended.

    Man, that sucks. At least you're OK and the car is repairable. Keep us posted on the repair.

    2010 or 2011 is the first model year for all cars to have ABS. Or maybe it was some sort of stability control, which requires ABS anyways.

    To the OP, glad your ok though. You said that you had the right front wheel replaced before. My question is, how about the tire? Is that the original, or new? That might of caused the little sideways motion. I don't know, just shooting that out there.

    I wondered about the tire also, considering it was made in the middle of 2008! (2908) means 29th week of 2008.

    ^ Good point. The tire looks like it is a 2008. Is the DOT the same on the other front tire? Mine is a 2010 and has a 2009 tire on it.

    That sucks! Find a good body shop that you can trust & let them know you are taking a picture of the mileage & you don't want the car driven!!!
