Crashed P-Car

Just thought I'd share some pics of my accident on friday, thankfully nothing major happened. Hope you enjoy the pics. Car is at the shop now, hope it looks ok in the end. Enjoy!

Whoa! What happened?


Try to get the insurance company to pay you out for the headlights and make sure you get the 03'+ style ones.

It wasnt too bad, I got hit by a suburban! Nothing happened to it of course, just a dent and scratches, mine looks like.....well you saw it! thankfully I am fine, just a minor accident, no airbags deployed or anything like it.

Juan, come on fess up. We all know you were trying to clean-out your front radiators!

Glad you are OK. Hope you can make some lemonade out of this unfortunate event.

It always pains me to see our special cars damaged.

Damn, those suburbans win every time!

OK so you told your friend with the suburban to hit you because you finally decided to upgrade to the new 997 gt3 front bumper, litronics, carbon fiber hood.... JK hope all goes well with the repairs, and get it back in time for the season.

For being hit by a Suburban that's not too bad. Still made me cringe when I opened the first picture though.

I am glad you are all on the same page as I am about the de-amber. I am going to get the clear headlight, I wanted the litronics but of course thats not covered and those are still really pricey. Anybody selling clear lights or litronics?

Doesn't look too bad to me. You can probably buff that out.

Glad you are OK!

New look!

All, just wanted to share how my care came out after the crash, I did upgrade the headlights to clear ones and finally de-ambered. I will upload some more as soon as I wash my car.
