Default Spectacular drift ends in disaster - DustenT crashes!

It's easier for me to make an animation of what happened, than to retell the story. A large snow bank blocked my view all the way down the road, so I didn't see the other car until it was too late. It was clearly my fault, I had it coming, I drive like a mad-man in the snow. Police were not amused, nor was the other driver (He drove a Saturn that cracked apart really bad). $120 ticket for "driving too fast for conditions". Looks like I'll need a new rear driver's side quarter panel and a new rear bumper. I have a $0 deductible for occasions like this. Nobody was hurt, thankfully. It was a relatively low speed accident. My first in the 318ti!

I'm thinking I'll do the work myself and get the ///M bumpers and skirts at the same time. Good times....

I like the animation Dunsten. It doesn't look too bad. Body shop can probably bondo it up and paint the parts. You go DK!! Good to hear nobody got hurt and bimmer not seriously damaged.

snow drifting is pretty fun though. that 1/4 looks salvageable...could have been worse though right?
hey- I just found my m3 bumper backed into with a trailor hitch from my budds's neighbor. I identified the truck, the hitch lines up perfect. The owner says it wasn't his, i'm outta luck...again....even with tire tracks and the obvious.

florida ice > snow.

Nothing like a light rain..slick pavement, and a 1000 ft slide throw a busy intersection on a film of oil/water and whatever else and getting through it 1" from your friend's rear end when he stops. cause he's watching from his rear and is thinking your going to die(wasn't in the Ti(S)..this was the fuken Sicvic FWD death/theft trap.

Btw, love the animation, but it needs some sound to be prefect. Esp a Ka-POW! at the moment of impact.

Boost Junky needs to change to Drift King

then you need to ride around in a Burger King mask for a vid.

Saturns suck.

I was in my friend's Saturn over the summer, and we hit this huge pothole in NYC. When we got to our destination... we noticed he was missing something.

His rear bumper.

Saturn Skys look sweet though.

I say you part it out.(Dibs on the S/C!!!) J/K, wait until the summer to get it repaired. There's nothing like a fresh paintjob in the summer. Also, screw the animation! Lets see some video!!! Any way we could convince you into doing a reinactment, minus the collision of course?

BTW, the "Douche" was clearly in your lane making a left turn waaay too sharp at high speed on packed snow! Isn't that what you told the insurance company? And didn't you notice a faint odor of alcohol emitting from his breath when he told you he was in a hurry and not to call the cops?

Btw, I may have come off as uncaring earlier, didn't mean it. I'm sorry to hear about it. I know how much time and energy you put into the car. It sucks when Sheit happened to them.


every time a Ti gets a ding...it makes Jesus Cry.

It's not bad as damage goes, and it could always be worse.

Best part: you walked away...I got a friend in Penn, that rolled his S/C 99 M3 well his friend driving rolled it for him...but his(my friend) belt broke and now his back is all sorts of f'd up. He's been on Meds, to Doctors, and looks like Surgery is coming up...all cause of 1 crash..that took seconds..has changed years of his life.

Those have got to be some of the most stupid people i know. I felt like i was watching some video made in highschool with highschool people in it. How stupid to try to drift around in a parking lot and then the idiot crashes right into his friend's car. Stupid people + Stupid sh*t + Stupid cars= Retarded results. And the people in Japan need to just race thier cars not get stuck on havin fun just driftin around corners.
