Default 1997 ti had an accident...

Our ti met with slippery conditions and a concrete barrier the other day. It looks like a loss, but we will decide soon. If we don't repair it we will probably keep it to keep some parts, then selling the rest off. I will post if we are going to part it out. Very sad, it was a kick A$$ little car. Fortunately, my son, who was driving, has no injury, except his sweet ti will probably not return to the street. 2020 strikes in the last week.

Sucks but it’s just a car. Glad no one was hurt!

I have been seeing decent ones popping up. You should be ready for spring if you keep at it.

Sad to hear. I had one of these incidents myself in 2019, when my S52 '98 Cali top was totaled. I ended up transplanting the S52 powertrain into the '96 that I'm driving now. Glad that your son is well, and hope you're back in a ti, soon!

Wow I’m glad your son is ok. This made me think of how I lost my first BMW, a very used 325ix I had bought with summer money when I was in college. I absolutely loved that car. I was on winter break, hit a patch of oil from an accident in the snow, I slid 35mph straight down a grass hill into a concrete wall and totaled it. The was year 2001. Wasn’t exactly the best year either! I hope you track down another ti, we have to keep these things going!
