Supprisingly I am not pissed. My car is totally fucked. It happened at around 11:45pm on Tuesday. I was on my way home and waiting at the light to turn onto my street. My light turns green and I start to make my left hand turn. A lady went right through the Redlight and ran right into my passenger side. She hit me going about 25-35 miles an hour.

As soon as the lady popped out after the initial shock she said "Why did you run the light" and so on. Luckily a guy that was waiting for her light to turn green stopped. I asked him if his light was RED and he said it was.

A cop was getting gas accross the street and took the witnesses statements (I had three say she ran a RED light). After she was told it was her fault she focused more on her car, apparently her car was new, as was mine. I felt bad for her kinda reminded me of my mom, so I kept trying to calm her down.

I was able to limp my car back home which was half a block away. The car sounded sooooo damn bad, metal grinding, thumping, and steering cocked 45 degrees the wrong way.

As for me I came out pretty clean. Managed not to get nailed by too much glass. I smacked my knee on the console but it just feels sore, nothing more. I am just glad no one was in my passenger seat. That sucker is screwed hard core.

Anyways enjoy the pictures. I am not sure what I am going to do about another vehicle. Not sure I will be able to get another E-Blue...might have to go Orange 8).

damn dude that hella sucks. glad to hear you are ok though. you think the insurance will total it?
The car is soo gone. There is some roof warpage due to the hit. The roof is tweaked enough to pop the sun roof open.

I should find out tomorrow.

Holy crap.

Glad you're OK of course and I'm very happy to see you're handling this as well as you are. I hope if the same happens to me I'm the same way.

Well at least the side air bag worked and if you had a passenger it would have helped!

Sorry to see that :stab: .. time to get ORANGE!

Glad you were not hurt.

Geez, that looks like a solid hit! As everyone else is, I'm really glad you're okay.

Pick your new color, a bent roof is bad, remember to ask for local help getting the stuff off the car that you want to keep before it disappears.

If you do decide to buy it back, make sure you have local buyers for the big ticket items, shipping an engine can be done, but it is a real PITA.

Hopefully you have GAP insurance to cover any difference between what the insurance company gives you for the car, and what is owed on it. Be sure to spend the extra $125 on GAP insurance (bought with the loan at the bank usually) for whatever car you choose to purchase next.

I hope this works out for you, it takes all the fun out of being mean to you in other threads. Good luck, and don't be taken advantage of...

I am just waiting for my insurance adjuster to come by and look at the car. Nothing is probably going to happen for a week or so.

I was thinking about buying the car back but will have to wait and see how much they want for it.

I am deffinantly taking my shit out of the car. The tow truck company aint gunna get my Stage 1.

I will have more info later.

LOL even the cop said that. The lady looked like she was going to cry. I just told her accidents happen.

My friend just got out of Brain surgery so I guess I am still in the mind set that there could be worse things that could happen. I am just glad I walked away from it and that no one was in my passengers seat.

Cant deside blue or orange.

Go with orange. =)

You know Matt... your swell.

I'm just a little shocked at how she didn't realize she ran a red light. Thank goodness you had eye witnesses.
