it wasnt his fault he was cut off by a guy making a left turn = cutting him off the other driver was charged with reckless driving and the other drive is at fault

Alan, my sister just told me earlier today...that's some terrible news Buddy!
What really matters is that you're okay.
I know how much time and effort you have spent on you E30...not to worry, I'm always here to help you out...just call.

All the best and glad to hear you're okay *th-up* !!!

Alan dude.. SO sorry to hear!

You spent some good time on that car.. :(

The scary reality of public roads makes it so hard to deal with stuff like this.. you take the chance of losing all that work and money every time you leave the driveway.

Glad your ok and still able to build another one down the road.

Thank you all for you kind words and support.

I'm pretty sure people want to know what happened so here is the story.


I had just got off work and went to a buddy's house to pick up some rims to see if they would fit the car.
I'm driving on eglinton going westbound on the left lane near caledonia. I change lanes to get in the right lane to aviod trafic clog up on the left lane for other drivers making a left. I'm doing about 40-50 km. there was really no room to speed because traffic was bearly flowing. I'm driving along and boom some guy in a saturn decides to make a left (he's on eglington aswell but going eastbound). he saw me coming i had the right of way, and the intersection that was about 7 or so cars ahead was had a green light. Anyways he decides to make the quick left and i had no chance to stop in time. I slammed the brakes but didn't stop in time ( time for a big brake system i guess lol) and my car hit the side of the saturn. It didn't feet like a hard hit but when i got out of the car and saw my car my mouth dropped. everything was pushed in. fenders look like pretezels, front end looks like a hit a wall at 100 miles an hour. My smoked hellas that i looked for months to get are smashed to pieces, well one side. The driver fo the saturn still has the balls to come up to me and say, " yo boy, Whats wrong with you? you smashed up my saturn." the whole time he thought it was my fault until the cop explained to him about 10 times why he was at fault. Anyways he got charged and now on tuesday his insurance guy is coming to see my car.

It hurts alot to see the car in the condtion that its in. it was my first car and well i have been working on it since i have got it. how much insurance gives to me is pointless because the car had more meaning to me then money. I don't think i would have ever sold that car. Funny thing is next week i was puttin the car away for winter and going to chuck's auto to pick up my s52 (97 m3 motor).

I have pics and will post them later when i'm on the other computer.

Once again thank you all for everything and i will keep u informed of what happened.

It's done for. Save up over the winter, buy a clean babied plastic bumper car, and give that motor a good home.

thats not a write off, no way

thats just a new front clip

Woofer
10-10-2005, 05:04 PM
yea im fine paul thanks for asking.

We'll see what insurance says tomorrow jay. Anyone looking for parts lol?

Woofer
10-10-2005, 05:07 PM
yea thats what alot of ppl are saying revshot. Alot of ppl think its repairable, but you also have to keep in mind that this is the second accident to the front of the car. Last winter i loaned the car to a firend and he smashed it into a cross walk pole. It was repaired then and repaint and that's when i decided to go through with the e30 project. Now with this second accident im not sure how well or if it can even be repaired or if its even worth it iguess. Tomorrow after i see the insurance ppl i'll know whats going on.

RevShoT
10-10-2005, 05:09 PM
as long at the front of the frame is not bent its all cosmetic

soon as that frame is touched, write off

Mystikal
10-10-2005, 05:28 PM
thats not a write off, no way

thats just a new front clip

The book value of that car is like less than a grand. Bend a few rims and to insurance, an eta is written off.

Eurostyle
10-10-2005, 05:30 PM
Sorry to say it, but to the insurance this will be a write off...You have a good $3-4K damage, on a car with book value under $900...The damage is not only cosmetic, since the rad support is bent and that is part of the unibody (frame) and to fix you need to cut off and weld a new one. unless this was an M3, i say buy it back, strip all the good parts in it and find a better base to start again...

T.Dot_E30
10-10-2005, 05:33 PM
Ya, For sure it can be fixed. Anything can be fixed with enough money.

But unfortunately the cost of fixing this car would most likely exceed the book value of the car, hence the reason insurance wil write it off.

I'd say be a straight e30 and start again.

Alan: I PM'd you about the broken hellas

RevShoT
10-10-2005, 05:40 PM
if its 900 for a book value then i dont think they will repair that, shit a breken fender after paint and labour is close to that much lol

10-10-2005, 10:05 PM
My eta had about 850 damage in the rear when it got rear ended (Tail light pushed in pretty good) It got fixed, but that was just an over charging incompetent shop.

Sorry to hear Alan.

Side not was your mtech over your aluminum bumps?

glad to hear your alright and sad to hear about the car, i saw this for the first time at the fist E30 cruise and was impressed by it. really sad to see some idiot cut your dreams for it short. good luck on whatever you decide to do man, look forward to seeing you next car.

10-11-2005, 01:38 AM
Sorry to hear about it - glad to hear that you're ok.
The car can definitely be repaired. However there's easily $2500 worth of damage even if you were to do a fair bit of the repair work. If you're going to go that route let me know - I'll donate a rad to the cause.

I personally would look for a clean shell to start from.

Sad to hear about your car , glad you didnt get hurt, funny how folks get on the it was your fault trip right away!! Last night my Dad was coming out of Bayview Vill and whilst traveling along in the center lane he is hit by a 17 year old in his dads sportute, the lad claimed at the tyme he did not see him when he changed lanes that my dad was probabley in his blinde spot , at that point he phoned his father who was not far and summoned him to the sean.Well now the tow trucks are around like flyes on shite Dads new buick now has 4 to 5 thous in damage and now the kid says it was his fault that my dad did not give the right of way !! yeah right ! he just did not look before taking the lane. No cops were called and his dad wants to get estimets on both cars to makes things right I hope that because the cops were not called it will be his word over Dads and he will reneg on his word, or he will do the right thing and have the buick repaird without of course involving the insur companys. A sad month for cars but they can and will be fixed and in your case as well as theirs no one was hurt. Good luck on the search for a replacement.

well the car has been moved from body shop to massive auto collision insurance comes one of these days comming soon to check i out

thanks again everyone. I'm still waiting on insurance to find out whats going to happen with the car. Its been now moved to massive auto collision. They are a very reputal company and have built many e30s before like mike's aka Mr.Mtech . He hasn't been able to check out the car completely yet but from what he sees he says that the car is repairable. tomorrow the insurance company should be coming in. I'll keep u guys posted.

Alan, make SURE you dont get in trouble because the car is modified. My friend got his insurance canceled because the car was LOWERED!!! They payed for the clame, but now its on his record...and you dont want to have "canceled" on there for any reason! Insurance is VERY picky over it these days, they always ask if the car is stock (they even asked me if my bike was stock lol), and if you say yes and they find otherwise you are in sh#t!

Alan,

Sorry about your ride... No worries, Tony will take good care of you. The car is definitely repairable. Hopefully the insurance company won't right it off.. Make sure you provide them with receipts.
