I was on my way home and got t-boned making a left turn by someone who ran a red light.

My car is totalled. Outside of a huge bruise on my left side from the side air bag, I am OK.

Seriously. FML. This is ridiculous. I am so bummed right now.

Dude, I feel for you. Had that bonehead-ran-the-red-light t-bone collision myself at the end of 2007. Good thing you had those side impact airbags. Getting off with just the bruises is great considering how bad it could have been.

duuuuuuude!
glad he hit the front. 1/2 second later and we'd be visiting you in the hospital.
did you go to the hospital and get things checked out? You may find other things start hurting a day or so after the impact.

Make sure to pry the emblem off the rear trunk lid for keeps sake. Isnt this your 2nd wreck in a pretty short period.

Wow. That sucks. 2 totaled cars caused by other people's bonehead driving in just a few months. That is just plain crappy luck!

I'm curious what you guys are cooking up . . . hopefully whatever it is will take some of the sting away. :thumbsup:

On a side note, I'm testing an X5 35d this week, and that's a bike hauler done right! 425 lb ft of torque, .85g on the skidpad, and 26 mpg!

Man, glad you came out of it with just bruises. I dont trust anyone on the road. Even though the light is green I try to look left and right at an intersection. It works! I saved myself from getting t-boned a couple times just by doing so.
