Just gonna vent,
I was on my way to work last night cruising around 75 feeling good in my freshly washed waxed and completely detailed 04 STi which has been babied since sept 2003. Cresting a hill on the highway and bam a efing truck tire! No time to move it goes up under the car followed by lots of noise and loud as hell exhaust. Pull over first thing I notice is the plastic tray under the engine is shredded hanging on by one last bolt on the back, the paint is spider webbed on the lower part of the bumper but at least its not leaking oil or coolant so that's good news. I check it out further to see if I can still drive it the rest of the way to work and deem it drivable. The whole way there I'm imagining where the exhaust it leaking from, I get to work jack it up and the back of the cat is broken completely off before the joint to the intermediate pipe. Bummer! It sounded mean as hell though, lol.
It could have been a lot worse but still sucks. Time for a turbo back exhaust maybe.
