Angry ANOTHER accident..

I'm sure all of you read about my run-in with Golden Gate Park...but if you didn't it is here:

I also made this flash movie because I was bored about what happened:

<OBJECT WIDTH=320 HEIGHT=240><PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="http://eric.brewhaha.net/ggb.swf"><PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high><PARAM NAME=scale VALUE=exactfit><PARAM NAME=menu VALUE=false><PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=bgcolor="#ffffff"><EMBED src="http://eric.brewhaha.net/ggb.swf" quality=high menu=false scale=exactfit WIDTH=320 HEIGHT=240 swLiveConnect=true TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"></EMBED></OBJECT>

Well I was driving home from SF to SoCal on Friday when I had another accident..I think the car gods are angry with me or something. Here is what happened:

I was driving down following a friend of mine (she has a truck). I was about 3 or 4 car lengths behind her and she ran over an L-shaped bracket made out of metal. It was about 6 inches on each arm of the L. Anyways, it poped her back-left tire and then flew up at me! The freeway was curving left so it was heading for the center of my car by the time it was at me!!! Once I saw something coming I jerked the car left, thank god, because it was at my neck level by the time it was at my car. Anyways, when I jerked the car left the L bracket cut my right side mirror in half!!! She had to get over 3 lanes to the shoulder because she had no tire, and I went to change lanes to help her and then I saw I had no mirror. I said "oh *****!" I swear that if I wasn't paying attention and didn't jerk the car to the left it would have come right through the windshield. Here is what it looks like now:

Bad luck has been the sum of my week :-(

Hmm. It's a shame the car gods have such poor aim.

DISCLAIMER: I was only joking.. things flying through the windshield at 80 MPH is not cool.

Question

I don't think so...and to top it off, this past week when it all happened was my finals week. I am hoping that I can order the entire piece from Subaru and then put it on myself. I doubt it'll be that hard, I already took it off. I cut the wires from the motors because it went too far down the door to find and I figured that I could just splice them together with the new part. Any idea of how much that unit will cost?

Eric you should contact the recycler in Rancho Cordova (Sacramento) as I know they had a BRP that should still have it's passenger mirror. BTW long time no see.
