Car got smashed up today... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Was behind a bus in school parking lot waiting to make a left turn when shit for brains behind the wheel decided to back up :mad:

Smashed up the whole front, I think its all aesthetic but it looks terrible :cry::cry::cry:

Good thing is I'm not at fault whatsoever and it will all be paid for under insurance, but it doesn't get fixed for a few weeks, I'm still incredibly pissed /sad right now just had to vent to people...:cry::cry::cry:

I am just so unbelievably devastated, this is the 2nd time the car has been hit in that parking lot in under a year! I don't know how I can bring it back to that parking lot again...

I'm a 17 year old broke high school student and I'm SERIOUSLY considering buying a shit beater car to go to school in, this can't happen again ugh!

Weird thing, I've never had a dream about the car before ever. Last night I had this vivid dream that the front of the car got smashed by a big van, albeit in my driveway, and slightly different, but still. It disturbed me, and then this happens...and I don't believe in weird stuff like that. Crazy huh?

Any suggestions to protecting the car? Would a 500 dollar shit car be worth it?

Stories like this are depressing. At least it wasn't your fault and maybe you can get an aftermarket bumper and/or grill if you didn't already have one. :)

OMG! I'm so sorry bud. :oops:

Take it as down time to get your new suspension installed. Perhaps you can get that into the cost of the repairs??

Always looking for the silver-lining behind the cloud!

UPDATE: Something good could come from this! My family feels really bad...they are considering helping me get the votex kit along with the repairs! AND I won't have to drive it to school anymore. This easter weekend we get an old car of ours back. We lent it to my aunt like 5 years ago, its got like 200k on it, and it looks like a beached whale, the wait is over:

Enter the old, ugly, bloated Previa!


Its worth like nothing, but we accepted it back from them. My parents say I can "have" it at least to drive to school so that I don't wreck the PASSAT!!!

This may work out better in the end afterall.

HEY HEY HEY... there is ANOTHER SILVER LINING!

If the Previa is tinted, it's got LOTS of room for making out with the chicks! :lol:

I'm still sorry though, after the whole suspension thing, I feel like I know you & your Passat somehow and then for this to happen! :mad:

I'll do what I can...It doesn't get fixed for like 2 weeks and I'm still really depressed about it. These forums are a great depression reliever though, most people just don't understand the love of the Passat. I get to drive it again today, its just so wrecked I hate using it like this. But I'm sure its all aesthetic now, the radiator is even untouched.

This is the update post :p

I got the car back today! Its finally all fixed. Dealership looks to have done a good job, I can't notice a difference. Aparrently it cost that moronic buss driver's insurance over 4k, haha owned ;). Either way I'm just happy its back. I put my freshly painted engine cover and a New Beetle "Turbo" badge on it today and its looking spiffy.

Now that all is well again I think its time to start work on the previa, it has arrived! Any ideas? Suggestions?


*grin*
