I was driving last night heading towards 280 s. traveling on the fast lane at about 65 mph when a dark colored pick up truck tried to switch onto my lane. My first instincts was to prevent the accident so I steered to the left and I ended up rubbing my fender against the wall. I tried to slow down but my abs came. I released the brake but all I remember was my car doing 360's across the freeway with on-coming traffic heading directly towards me. Thank god no other car t-boned or crushed me or else it wouldve made matters worst. I ended on the farthest right near the exit on San Jose ave. My car was ontop of a guard rail. No one was hurt but my body was so tense I couldnt barely move anything. What sucks even more was the cops where accusing us of street racing since my buddy in a celica showed up. Just a reminder to everyone even though you can be a good and defense driver, but others on the road may not be. With that said, I was wondering if there are any good body shops in the bay area that can fix my car to being near perfect again. I hope it isnt totalled......

I wrecked mine a month ago and the damage didn't look anywhere near as bad as yours - your wheel is completely ripped off.

The total for repairs was $9,615 for my car

Good luck, man

Default Carmat is good.

Based on customer testimonials, I highly recommend that place.

Yahoo constantly changes the address, so you can't link it to yahoo. You can try the free pic hosting that they have listed in off topic.

Sorry to hear. The wierd thing is, my classmate from SFSU just told me his neighbor crashed his wrx. I figiured it was you because his neighbor has a black wrx and he crashed on the freeway. Is your neighbor mike?

yah my neighbor is mike... he's a really cool guy. Gave me an auto body shop to go to called Franklin Auto Body out here in SF. His friend works there and hoping he can bring my wrx back to life. What sucks more is just bought those wheels 3 days ago and I was just heading home that night to install my pe1818 turbo, mrt fmic, injectors, tien flex w/ edfc, and omori gauges. Luckily my tiens weren't on the car when the accident happened because my suspension is f*^%.
