    It depends on how damaged it is. I have a 96 impreza that was rolled over. The roof is crushed in right above the driver door. I'm going to try to pull it out, but I'm seriously thinking about welding a new one on.

    Here in the USA where safety inspections and road worthiness are loosely govt over seen, that car would never likely drive on the roads again. Insurance companies here would consider it a total loss, as the frame would most likely never be straight again (leaving it a liability), or it would cost well over the value of the car to fix. I have never been to Brunei so I do not know what the laws are regarding "salvaged" or "fixed" cars.

    I do know however that the Sultan of Brunei owns the only functioning two of these in existence.

    that's the problem of the insurance company here in brunei , they don't wanna lose money . I did tried to claim the insurance and wanted the car to just be condemned but they said we (insurance co.) cannot do so coz car can be repaired . So they would rather just repair my car than giving me money . I got injured in that accident damn it !!! I F***** hated them for that but I had no choice . As for now i'm still waiting for the roof and other body parts possibly left front and back doors from japan . Miraclly the driver's side didnt suffer alot of damages , even the front and back door's glass window didn't break .

    About those ferrari mythos , the 1st time i saw it otr made me like ... what was that !!???

    Thanx 4 replying and all the best .
