Damn Batou. That was quite the project. I've never seen blue carpet before either. Was that a factory option that came with the blue seats or something?

Not sure what possessed people to spec the blue carpet on a dark silver car from the factory to be honest. I bought the car with only 20,000 on the clock and it was too good price to not buy. Should have done this ages ago really

I love my blue carpet... My car is blue though. I actually looked for cars with blue interiors.

no. i didnt even try to run after him. he lied to me and said he was going to call from the gas station on the corner.

the car was registered to him tho, and he left all his personal things in the car like his iphone. his lock screen on his iphone was a picture of him and his family, so the cops asked me to identify him on there.

Luckily drunks are extremely clever. Sorry about the misfortune, glad you were able to walk away, though

im not sure. i havent had a real chance to look in daylight yet but it could go either way.
the wheel might be hiding most of the damage in the picture.

Sorry to hear that Retrospec. I hate people. Glad you are okay. I had a similar accident last year only the lady was sober and hit me just in front of the rear wheel. Damage was ~8,000 on my r56 and it needed slight adjustment on the frame and also blew the passanger interior apart (which is what made the cost so high)

Hope everything turns out okay.

Oh man bad news. I'm happy no one was hurt. Good luck with all the next obnoxious steps.
