    I = total idiot

    You know that rich kid who's parnets by him a car he can't handle and he crashes it?
    I'm that kid.

    I got by WRX in march of last year, and since then, have been totally irresponsible. Thrice now i have put my baby in the shop. Each time costing substantially more than the previous. I realize i don't deserve this car now, and am thinking about trading it in for some nice, reliable, efficient toyota that will get me to and from school.

    This most recent incident (happened about 10 minutes ago) involved me going too fast on some ice, and an ill-placed telephone poll. The damage didn't look too bad when i first got out and looked, but after driving it to my garage (hundereds of feet away from that telephone pole) can tell this one is a doozy. Im a 16 year old driving a WRX with 3 accidents under his belt, who wants to guess my insurence?

    Pics to come

    I'd guess your insurance rates are somewhat like what some countries spend on health care or defense, but on the bright side you're unhurt. Watch out for telephone poles and lamp posts, historically they never drive well.

    I hate when they jump out in front of me.


    +1 On admitting fault! Good boy. Step one is acknowledging the problem, step two is correcting it.

    Im guessing your insurance is somewhere around 400-500 a month, even under your parents name... maybe worse then that.

    thats not that bad, I could buff it out..

    you didnt hurt the suspension at all did you? If you buy the parts online and do a little work yourself im sure you could fix it for relatively cheap. Of course till then your car looks horrible..

    bumper
    headlight
    foglight
    frame

    thats about it right?

    Notice in the second picture the wheel is pushed back almost so its hitting the fenderwall. Not promising.
    Also , had to drive to my garage with the steering wheel tilted about 45 degrees counter-clockwise to make the car go straight, what fun.

    wow... i really don't blame you... i actually blame your parents. glad to see you've realized your lack of driving experience (even if it took 3 accidents to realize it). good luck with getting your insurance down (seriously, no sarcasm intended). get a mazda3 or civic... very good naturally aspirated cars and take it slow... that's the best way to hone driving skills.
