First, glad that you're ok.

Second, if the damage is around 5k, I would think, especially with so few miles, that they would fix the car.

Third, women, can't live with them, can't shoot them. (Just don't let my wife see it)

...Aw f**k dude.

Now that's 2/3 T/As on this site.

If the PVC shredded the fascias (rear just has a crack, have them put it back together if they can't find a matching fascia.. HAVE THEM DO THE CETA IF THEY HAVE TO PAINT! ), lamps and fender.. cracked a rim (2?) probably looking at around 2-3K possibly a high of 5K like NDT said if you can find red panels (not hard, remember my rear quarter was red). Hood survived so you dodged a huge bullet. Also looks like your fender brackets are intact so that's awesome. I'd say they'll cover it.

Remember I demolished that part of my car too.. but I saved the pieces and mended them rather than replaced them. Could be less because most of my money was tied up in frame.

Combination. Resale dives off after an accident obviously, and even though WS6es go for 15K easy for low miles it's rare to see them repaired and more common for them to wind up parted out. My insurance would have totaled my car outright since my repairs exceeded 95% of the initial purchase price of my car. His are probably at best 50%, more likely less since the color is so easy to match/find in parts.

Glad I'm living the single life! But it really does hit home when you injure your baby.. I felt like total shit for a couple days when I hit a curb breaking a rim, and bent an axle

The frame looks a little bent but that can be straightened
Fix it... even if they total it ...buy it back and fix it....

There's only 3? Now that I think about it, I guess there is. Mine was wrecked a long time ago, that's how I ended up with the Ram Air hood.

That's why I said 3.. there's only 3 active T/As on the site.

And I guess that makes 3 of 3 now.

I knew what you meant. It just hadn't occurred to me that there were only three members in the section with them. Yea bad news bears right here.

Buy it back, pay off the loan, find the parts (EVERYWHERE) and fix it. Too nice of a car to send to the boneyard.

Someone else will pick it up and turn it into a race car or part it out.

there was a lot of other damage i didnt know, oil pan was destroyed, steering rack was a little screwed up...it would take me years to put it back together and it's just not worth it, would make me more upset to have to see it all the time all beat up looking...ill buy another one soon enough or maybe a 5th gen tho i really loved my TA...

Damn hidden damage. When I saw that stain on the ground I was wondering if something had gotten punched. Just get a 5th gen 1LE if you can swing it or hold out for a 6th gen. If you're going to C5FIII I'll make it a mission to let you hoon around in Fenix and break her.

So you parting out or let insurance take it? If you're gonna part it.. PM me. :(

letting insurance take it. i will buy another ws6 most likely..just not one with only 6500 miles on it...tho i did manage to put 14k miles on it in the 1 year I owned it o.O

i will buy one with 40-60k on it and be happy...it will make modding it easier tho after putting all those miles on the old one i was about ready to mod away on it.

Damn that sucks, hopefully somebody will snag it. It'd make a great track car now.
