You got it. Your the one who got t-boned. And you have a witness to. Only thing is if he's lying about the witness you can call it out like if he was really there what color what my car or some bull stuff to get his "witness" to seem like BS.

If u parting out let me know :D other than that hoped u had full coverage. if it was my car first thing ill ask him is do u have insurance. If not ill lay him out right where he stand. Now what you have to do is explain your story on what happen. Stick to your story and you will be fine.

Yeah just make sure when you file the claim that you tell your side of the story, its up to the insurance companies to decide who is at fault but most likely it may be him. But if you forgot to turn on your lights that may be something. Your suppose to have you lights on like 1 hour before the sun goes down or something.

f those insurance people bro. cheap mofo has arms wide open when you dump money into their company but when shit goes down they act like oh we aint gonna pay you for what its worth. ive seen kbb and that shit is stupid. ripping people off. sucks to see if you decide to part out the car but if it hit the frame no point of going on. like i said b4 i need some parts and looks like you are my man.:thumb::thumb:
pm me your number and ill come by to pick up some parts. im from stockton so we aint that far away from each other. good luck with part out bro.

Just remove the door, fender, and rocker panels. That way you can really get a good look at what your really dealing with.

Sorry to hear about the accident. You can try to prove the guy was 100% at fault if you take pictures of the area and any skid marks and stuff like that. Make your case the best you can and tell the insurance company you weren't speeding. Unless you were, then they might have you. Either way, take the insurance money, the part out money, and some budgeted upgrade money and buy my gsx! :D

theres no proof of you speeding, no radars ect. ect.. cheap insurance company will just try some off the wall B.S. to make you settle quick. thats why i have AAA.. and on you go.. no question ask.

true that. cheap insurance will try anything to get a settlement and shake hands with the other insurance afterwards. im with progressive and i can tell you i pay 200 a month on my dsm:notgood: the look of that damage is a done deal. even if you take off the door get a new fender you will be having problem closing the door or some misc problem. dont accept their offer of 75 percent LOL first time in my life i heard something like that. dont settle at all. go see a doctor get your money. say your neck hurts or back or something. stick with your story. good luck

i wish that would be awsome i really want another gst or gsx but as it looks right now its either totaled or they want to tow it to a body shop and pay 75% of the damage i have no money im 19 and got no job i got this car flipping hondas and now i might just be screwed

Open the door and take a picture of the door hinge area. That will tell you if its salvageable or not.

Doesn't look too tho.

the door is complety stuck shut and the part where the fender bolts up is push in where my clutch pedal is

Well you can still get a payout on the car and then pay the salvage price to keep the car from the insurance company/crusher. That will give you a chance to part it out or drive it listing to the left for the rest of its' life.

But at the end of the day, queue the queen music on that bad boy: Queen - 'Another one bites the dust' music video - YouTube

On another note... its fixable clearly it looks that he was wrong so...no worries you'll be ok although it sucks...
