So I'm just minding my own business driving down the street when a 19 year old girl coming from the other direction trys to take a left turn in front of me. Only problem was...she did it while on the phone and about 10 feet from my car that was traveling at about 35 mph. Airbag bang ouch.... Long story short, the subframe is effed up. Her car hit the front/leftish side of mine and I couldn't even open my passenger door the frame was so messed up......don't know if they are going to total it out or not....engine was still working but overheating because the radiator got smashed. I just want my baby...almost cried when I was it on the flatbed

Glad your ok.

Hurry and strip the car of all your aftermarket parts and hide them before everyone here PM's you about them, the vultures are already above you.

I will cry for you :( I really feel your pain, my baby was rear ended over a month and a half ago and i still don't have it back. And i will tell you, i did pretty much cry when it was being driven away on the flat bed. Sadly my "accident" happened pretty much the same way, young idiot rear ended me at a red light with ice obstructing his whole windshield. Sorry to see man. Glad you are ok!

I crashed my 3 s a while back when bluebook was 11k on it there was 7500 in damage including frame damage but it got fixed and is like new, no complaints frame is like new too they pulled it straight, I cant even find any evidence of it under the hood or car.

Long story short, your car will probably be fixed.

Man...glad your ok. Cell phones are a nightmare on the roads. Guy I work with will text an entire conversation on the way to work. WTF? That's retarded. IF your car is totaled out, do you plan on another Speed 3? If it's not, did you have aftermaket parts covered in your insurance policy? Good luck with it all...

Yes, he was the only test car I'm aware of that was using aftermaket cams for this car. Forgot the name of the manufacturer.
