Yeah man I'm glad it doesn't look too crazy. I'm starting to feel the body aches though...lol. Hopefully everything is just cosmetic. I did get sandwiched after all so I hope the shop determines everything is ok. Otherwise I may have to start shopping for a z4m coupe or who knows, maybe a e92 M

holy crap! make sure you see the "chiropractor" to milk it for its worth, but honestly you should be seeing one either way since the effects are going to hit you later.... on another note my cousin Tim got rear ended in his mini, and he was thinking about autox his rental, corolla

I guess the guy forgot to upgrade his brakes from all his new found power from the racing stripes

yup, definitely visiting the chiropractor. most of my back is pretty sore already. right now im lookin at taking either a 335i, c300, or the rental im picking up tomorrow to the autox.

the guy was all telling the cops he couldnt stop fast enough because his tires were not very good...the cops turned around and asked him if his tires were bald...fail...lol

Wouldn't bald tires give him better stopping distance? More contact patch area?

Love the R8, but even a used one is gonna run you 90k, for 70k the gt-r is even better performance than the r8 v10!

True story, but I'd rather be in a z06 than A gtr. Which may be in the near future if I keep itching for a new car with no money to spend -_-

Rather be in the zo6 for looks, performance or price point? Price being equal, which one would you choose?

I'm just biased against cars that can make a driver better than they really are...gtr Evo and sti. Lol. But I have a massive amount of respect for the gtr....it just doesn't make sense
