Hi guys, i'm all rattled writin' this......I got rear ended by a semi last night in rush hour traffic, hit me 3 times we had lotsa room, *uzi* bloody frog, he said he didn't see me 3 times? "huh?" I said to the officer, "Is this guy high???? *drink* He wanted to kill me!!! " Poor Ti anyways cars strong, hardly any damage but to the hatch top & rear bumper rebar is prob bent too, I need advice on how to go about insurance, I'm covered fully but I'm with Co operators (don't ask) but now who's good to take it too? :confused: I went to Shawson Auto body last night, great shop but anyone have experience with this place? Man I'm still in shock from all this, neva had probs in 10 years! Ahh well I just need to drink lotsa coffee *wiggle* lol, can you guys give me advice??? Pls????

take it to European or one of the other top-of-the-line places if insurance is covering it.

hey Brother!

First of all, I am just very happy and thankful that you are around to write this still and did not get creamed. I dont know how it works but get that mofo's company to sort your car out for sure! If your neck is still hurting, get that checked out.

Get well soon for both you and the car!

lol...it was a joke...you got rear ended and fil says there was hardly any damage, when the TI first came out, ppl were saying that it looks like an IS that survived being rear ended... :D

this is what u wana do, his insurance will probally request 3 quotes and take the lowest, so goto the 3 most expensive shops around, they will send you a cheque, with that money buy an m3 bumper and what u need and then get it all fixed with the check!

there no law saying that because insurance covers damage to your car u have to put the money into fixing the damage!

my buddy smoked a deer, got 1800 check for it and never fixed his car

serious? I've heard nothing but good stuff about them on the 318ti.org website...

anyways, yeah, I'll still consider the M50 option...because I don't plan on doing it until i'm done uni. By that time, hopefully, those engines will be cheap...

It's cheaper and more cost effective to put DASC in than do an engine swap. I've been in 328ti and DASC ti, and they both pull very similiar. And now with the Canadian exchange it's even cheaper. There was just a group buy for DASC, the kit went for something around 2800US.

If you show up next year for an autox, you can get a ride in a DASC ti.
