Unhappy Trashed my baby

I binned my ti the other day....absolutely gutted, I bloody love that car.

My own fault, on the way home from work thinking about loads of sh!t I'm having to deal with atm, not paying attention. Braked late,went into the corner little to quick, lost the frount, drifted wide & hit some poor sod in a Renault. No one was hurt fortunately but my ride's a mess. Had the insurance approved repairer round today & his first impression was it's written off (cars insured for 7k). Sweet talked him a little & he appreciated how much the car means to me, he's gonna talk to his governer & if he agrees they're gonna take it in & have a closer look. Dunno what I'm going to do if it's written off, finding another ti as clean & low miles as this one is going to be real hard.

I hate to tell you but it looks the frame is pretty well knackered. I know how it is though, losing your ti at this point is like breaking up with a long-time girlfriend.

Glad to hear everybody was alright. If you're patient, maybe something will come around.

It doesn't need park distance control, and hates decadence. It is musclepacked, yet lightly wound. It lets you feel the asphalt and get you going with the smallest touch of the pedal. It provokes, seduces, and demands to be driven hard. It looks, sounds, and smells like performance.

Now there's an idea, scooting around in this for the meantime.

this is like the 12th car in 4 months that something happens around here. On this site alone. Even i have dodged cars while driving so it isnt just you. Ive almost been hit like 7x in 1 week. So keep a look out.

Well, I'm afraid to say that after much deliberation they've decided to write off my ti
I'm devastated....totally friggin gutted... that car was MINT with just 33k on the clock. BASTIDS!!!!

On a brighter note, I've got about 9k to go shopping with so can get something else pretty decent. Going to look at a 2.8 Z3 tomorrow, after driving a BMW other cars just feel cheap & crappy.
