Driving along then some idiot decided to make an illegal U-turn right in front of me. Funny thing is that it happened in front of a bunch of cops who were witnesses on my behalf. Car was deemed a total loss due to frame damage. Got a 15k check!



here's the smart one!

Hey, at least you walked away from a totaled car. Looks like your car took it better than the Dodge. Good luck, what's the plan now?

Well, I loved my IS but its time to change it up...My sister-in-law's dad is some head of some financial dept at Infiniti and I'm gonna get a great deal on a 08 FX35... was thinking about the G37 sport 6 speed but I can't be getting in trouble anymore =)


did the side airbag deploy?
Nope, the main point of impact was the drivers side wheel and because I was moving forward he got my doors.

the fx35 will still get u in trouble, but it is kinda stealth b/c it passes under the radar as an "innocent suv". nice choice

thanks guys... I didn't have a scratch nor a bruise on me! But I was sore due to snowboarding the previous day so I wasn't gonna feel anything from it. Everyone was telling me I should of said my neck and back hurt and do the whole ambulance/hospital/chiropractor deal then get a lawyer and sue... I was like yeah right to much crap to deal with especially the karma! I was glad to climb out the passanger door and walk away!

Sorry guys! I know I should of pulled all that stuff out when I went to the tow yard cuz the appraiser would of never noticed but I just got the major stuff like my sub, amps, valentine 1, and personal belongings...

I lost out on my:

SRT intake, OBX Header, Tanabe exhaust, and my eclipse avn 5500<----but they gave me a $1000 for the nav I only paid $600 for it...refurbished

Now the car is at the salvage yard... the insurance company owns my car now... sucks!!!

I do have stuff for sale and there is a thread in the for sale forum..click here http://my.is/forums/f99/fs-18-ssr-gt3-staggerd-stock-parts-audio-misc-parts-socal-56k-no-bueno-352516/
