We'll on may 3rd, 2005 my heart was broken when some idiot pull's out in front of me after being waved through by another idiot who of course left the scene of the accident.This was a front impact that wasted my fascia,bumper,absorber,grille,headlamps,side markers,fog lamps,hood,ac condenser,trans cooler and the worst of all my spearco fmic.That is the damage that can be seen, who knows what else they will find when it come's apart.It's times like this that i question what the future may hold for me and my se-r,all the time and money i put into this car just to have some a__hole destroy it and my dream's with one idiotic move.I'm sure his insurance company will not pay for my intercooler,so i'll just have to sue him and his insurance company to get my money for another intercooler.Unfortunetly i'm going to miss out on n.e.d import war's this season and that doesn't make me to happy either.Just needed to vent my feeling's,thanks for listening -Chris

I don't plan on parting anything out yet,it all depend's on what happen's w/the insurance company.

UPDATE-$3,688.57 w/o intercooler-they took 85% liability while sticking me w/15% liability because they say i didn't take the proper evasive maneuver to avoid the accident,so beware insurance company's are trying to share fault with you even though you had nothing to do w/it(except being on the road at that time)

Damn man, that sucks I loved the turbo automatic. I would go after the insurance Co. for the extra $$. I know it will be a PTA but, it wasn't your fault therefor your stuff should be replaced.... let me know if I can do anything for ya...

Ya, I know about the cervical spine, I have 2 crushed disks and get cortizone shot on a regular basis. They want me to go for surgery but, I 'm waiting until I start doing nerve damage(I hate hospitals and doctors). Good luck and let me know if you need anything..
