how to turn a 323ci into a 330ci

so about a month ago i had lots of bad luck with my 323ci

so i'm heading to work northbound on Dufferin just under eglinton... when some lady driving a rental mini van decides to make a right turn into the gas station from the left lane, cuts me of and ****s up the car..

Insurance covers me and i lost my car for a week and a bit while in the body shop..
I get my car back on a monday at 5...... The next day (tuesday) at 7pmi write off the car

getting in the highway while it is raining like a bitch. some gravel washed its way onto the conor.. the car hydroplanes, does a half spin i get control back, but on more gravel so it conter sides and i end up hitting the concrete wall.... this is the result


The car just bounced off the wall.. Car took the hit really really good.

two accidents in one month?? One which was a loss of control leading to a write off.....that is deemed 100% at fault accident.

I would look into insurance rates before looking at 330's

wow, sorry to hear about your bad luck man, I know how it feels. I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt. If I was you, I'd probably try to get my hands on a M3, from the States of course

thanks buddy...
yeah i took a couple of parts out before insurance gave me the money..
took my leds, intake, clear sides... the clear conors got smashed.. took out the deck... i went back for the rims 2 days later, but it was too late. Insurance already collected the car... I was pissed. i really liked those rims a lot

no kidding



Those two claims cost your insurer a lot of money. Another, I'd be on my best behaviour if I were you. That's only a $500 premium increase, but they're going to keep their eye on you now.
