NOT Professional Auto detailing on Muldoon and peck. I'm really not one to bad mouth a business based on one bad experience but it was way overpriced, not clean, and I'm pretty sure the gas tank was siphoned.

Call him yourself. Highly recommended. I've used his services many times and will again.

And NOT A+ Appearance on Old Seward between Dimond & 76th. Their prices don't match their lack of quality and attention to detail.

Subsequently, I'm searching for a detailer that will claybar, buff and wax. I miss Taig.

Getting that new car itch again. Really looking into the 13 STi, I keep looking at the spy photos of the upcoming STi and hope we get to see it soon.

I've been looking into trucks and other car makers but I keep sticking to Subaru. I just haven't been in a new STi before. I've test driven an 08 years ago, anyone with a newer "stock like" STi want to drive around, I don't even have to drive as long as I know how the ride is?

Baja Turbo... A BRAT may be a little disappointing on the power level if his sights are set on a STI.

Was playing around on edmunds.com and noticed they have a "BRZ convertable" and "2014 WRX sedan" available to click on. When you do they have "available soon/release winter 2014".

There isn't a way to really get a standardized rate from him.

It depends on the damage done. Sometimes if the damage is severe enough he'll charge per panel. If it's very minor dents/dings he will give a full side discounted rate.

Unless he sees it in person it's pretty much impossible for him to give you an accurate quote. His shop is located right next to CCA on Arctic but you need to call for an appointment. Work can be done at his shop, at your home or even at the auto shop your vehicle is getting work done at. (The more lighting the better though) Just need to call him and sort out the details is all.

I will say he's very reasonable with his pricing. You will be very pleased for the price and work done.

Whelp, I got in an accident today. Anyone have any experience with State Farm and their process for declaring a car a total loss?

I know the drivers airbag deployed, and possible damage to the radiator(unclear, as I didn't want to fuss with the hood) and possible damage to the frame. I've heard the old saying that when it comes to Airbags, its a 50/50 chance of total. Is this true? Also heard that even if the car is repaired, the value of it will be a fraction of normal BECAUSE the airbag deployed.

I'd just like to know so I can get my mind-set around what insurance might have to say.

Quick pic for those that missed it in the other thread:



And another showing fluid under the car. I'm thinking it's just wiper fluid.

^^^ OUCH!!!

Sorry to hear this for such a cool-colored FSX.

I hope everyone is OK.

Is this in front of the Millennium Hotel? Did they pull out in front of you?
I always worry about that area there because of their obscured entrance.

Everyone is ok. The poor older gal was crying she was so sorry about it.

And yes this was in front of the Millennium, she was in the Eastbound lane (heading toward the Airport) and I was heading home in the Westbound to pick up my dog to fly to our cabin. She turned South (left) in front of me to try and get into the neighborhood across from the hotel.

I'm just thanking the stars I wasn't on my bike. I wouldn't have walked away from that one if I was. I'm torn, not sure if I should hope for a total loss, or not because I have no experience in this matter.
