OK, here's the thread. I spent a lot of time and money replacing the suspension on my car so that it would corner flat out and be real stiff. Wonderful, great. Then I ditched the car and started biking to work again (I lost interest in the car, and the biking was taking up a lot of extra time, plus needing more sleep, etc... so that's why I wasn't on here). Anyways, so I wasn't driving anymore, but then it's supposed to rain on Wednesday, and I'm tired, so I drive in. Woot. When I leave work to go home, it's like this. It's not raining anymore, but it had just finished raining. Start car, put in manual mode (stupid), disable traction control (stupid) Drive through the city fine.... approach the final intersection/turn before the highway. Figure, "let's have some fun and pull a drift around the last turn" (OK I wasn't intending to drift, but stupid anyway) Drop the car into 3rd gear with the paddle shifters, hit the left turn onto the highway nice and slow. But the road is wetter than anticipated, and I'm not used to the suspension, and I accelerate too hard at the end of the turn. Back wheels swing wide, towards the outside. There are 2 lanes of traffic turning left, and I'm in the outside lane, and suddenly I'm about to crash into the other lane of traffic Overcorrect with steering and throttle Violently spin the opposite direction Crash into wall facing the wrong direction. F*** After a minute (I'm not dead), I slowly go the wrong way down the road and turn left, cross lightrail tracks, the back bumper comes off (it was dragging). Get out, happy to see my quarter panel is not smashed.... pic up the bumper, take off the lip, put the lip in the trunk and the bumper in the back seat. drive home like nothing happened lol. Here's the left turn.... you can see these cars are in 2 lanes making the left... I was in the outer lane. So, I spun counter-clockwise at first, pointing into the median, and then spun clockwise into the wall. The hit was very very hard for sure, but fortunately, the airbags didn't go off and no windows broke. The damage is all cosmetic, the mechanics are still 100%. So the car drives normally, just looks broken. Onto my pics. So the rear bumper & styrofoam was ripped off (I took off the lip myself, it was still attached fine). Since the wall was shaped like a median jersey barrier, it was wider at the bottom. So that's where most of the damage is. The car then hit the upper part of the wall, but not as hard. The tail light is destroyed, and there are little dents above the tail light. The trunk is dented in the lower corner and all out of alignment. See the vent flap thing? It's not supposed to be all distorted like that. And the black tray piece underneath is supposed to be flat, not bent in half: Here, you can see the trunk is wack, the tail light was shoved into the car, and the bumper bar is bent on the end. Take a look at that flap door thing.... the top of it shows the original alignment, the bottom shows how it was pushed in. That's supposed to be a square corner down there: Compare it to this corner. The trunk was even more messed up on this side. And, it's hard to tell, but this tail light was pulled off closest to the wheel and will not fit properly anymore: Here you can see the damage on the bottom left compared to the bottom right. Either the trunk is shifted left, or the entire back of the car is shifted right: A close up of the tail light. Not only was the lens obliterated, but the impact crushed the light enough to break the housing itself in half. As a result, the black chrome finish through out the entire assembly has come off in spidery veins (hard to get a pic of). The trunk contour doesn't match the tail light anymore. The quarter panel above the tail lights is dented. The areas of cleaner-looking bluer paint under the tail light is where paint came off and metal crumpled: This is where it really got hit. It's shoved in a few inches: From underneath after removing the black splash panel, you can see the crumple zones: I found that the inside the trunk is shorter now.... the flooring doesn't fit anymore. After removing all of the carpeting, you can see why the trunk is smaller. That busted opening is where the door flap thing was. Oh, and just under the opening, you can see it is full of water. I have no clue how that got there: Here's the bumper.... obliterated! The sidemarker broke as well (and burned out lol More ouch... the wires to the sidemarkers WERE taped to the bumper. The wires were smashed through on this side, and they ripped out of the other sidemarker when the bumper came off: I love polyurethane!! Unbelievable! This is the lip (upside-down), and this is what his the hardest. It's still 100% intact, only some surface scratches! Here's the back of the lip.... completely unharmed! Just imagine... ABS or fiberglass, and this lip would have been in a million pieces all over the road: I started fixing it up..... I'm gonna get a new body kit and tail lights, and patch up the dents and whatnot. I've cleaned up the crumple zones and primered them so they don't leak. I got the trunk to close a lot better, but it's never gonna be 100%. It still doesn't fit quite right, as I had to shift it over some, and modify the latch to work. The tail lights though, I'm still using them, but I'm afraid that new ones aren't going to fit any better. We'll see. The bumper, I put it back together, used some zipties, and repainted it blue. I'll reinstall it after I go back to the crash scene to find some missing brackets lol. That's all for now, thanks. I'm unsure what to do, other than just patch it up and put it back the way it was. I was not happy with the way the back looked anyway, so I'm looking into new options. But for now, the car is still great fun to drive (while I bike to work lol).
