    Yeah, that's what insurance is for...

    I'm just bummed because I haven't been able to drive it for weeks and now it's going right back into the shop.

    Nice bumper. I feel your pain someone decided my bumper needed a new air-hole so they happily added one for me. Luckily for me they didn't have insurance.

    Ugh that sucks!


    I've had two cars rear ended while just waiting. First was my 07 STI Limited. Got plowed by a Porsche Cayenne. Second time was my 350z. Both accidents totaled $6k in damage each.

    Ouch. I've been lucky enough to always get hit by people with insurance.

    What's funny is all three times I've been rear-ended it was by military guys. <---That's a softball, I know. Lol.

    I can't say that...my best friend growing up graduated from The Naval Academy and is now a Captain Blackhawk pilot in the Marines, with a smokin hot fiancee.

    Haha, yeah ships have females on them these days (except submarines), so I'm not sure the reputation is still valid, if it ever was. The only gay military guy I ever met was in the Army, but I was in the Army too so I obviously know a lot of Army guys.
