Sorry to hear that, hope you are okay. Looks wrecked with all that damage and air bags deployed. I think you would want it to be totaled, not sure if the structural integrity would be there in a second crash.

Thanks for the "i hope you are ok's". I should have mentioned all drivers including myself walked away. A bit stiff, and a minor headache is all.

Ironically i was on my way to a meet!

I would not say it a complete lose just yet the body damage looks bad but with it being so new what it will come down to is how much structural damage was done. If the frame is damaged and how much damage is done in the engine will be the tell. Repair cost will have to excede the vaule of the car. If repairs are done make sure you watch over them and they are done right. Sorry this happen and wish you the best of luck.

I hate to see threads like this, you had such a beautiful car.

The important thing is that you are ok and were able to walk away from that.

I would say its totaled. Time for a '14 with some Recaros!

Man i feel sick after seeing these picture. Makes me not want to drive my car. Being that i work at a body shop i would say its fixable. The big thing is the air bags they cost a bunch, but if you have the shop look around you could some times get good deals. You'll be surprise how well repair can be now days. The trick is to fine a well experience and equip shop. I would also drop in periodically to see the progress as its being fix.Glad you are ok man.

Ouch is an understatement. Really sorry this happened...a very sad sight. If there is a chance that they total it, do you need to start pulling mods off the car?

Glad to hear there were no serious injuries. As far as repairable or total loss...from a body shop managers point of view, you will know better after the damaged sheet metal is removed and can evaluate the actual damage. Once the damage is estimated the insurance company will determine the path to follow. Best of luck. We love our cars, but as stated by others.. Glad you're okay. We can fix or replace metal.

Man, I hate to tell you this but that does not look like a total loss. The windshield looks like it is still OK (you got to give it to those GM guys!). It looks nasty for sure and I hope for you that they write it off. Sorry to see that, best wishes.

That shit will buff out . Looks like the car took it like a G!

My thought is not a total. As previously mentioned, repair technology has come a long way. If done by the right shop, I wouldn't worry a bit.

How did the car protect you overall. Would you grade the car 5 stars?

Glad you're okay!!
