This is the second time it happened to me. The first time everything was replaced by the insurance company, however, this time they took the engine alone with misc item. I hope that the insurance company will issue me a check instead of fixing up my baby. I am so fed up and tired of this $hit that I just have to let go.







I just test drive the wrx today, it definitely has more speed, but the gear box is so crunchy, and the thing is that im not too sure about the theft rate!

I think the Insurance company will just cut you a cheque for this one. Theres not much left.

No matter what you drive, someone else will want it or want something on it. The best thing to do today is have good insurance. Chances are someone will steal it or trash it someday.

Sorry to hear pal.

Walking up to the car, I was thinking to myself that this may not be too bad. the previous time it got stolen it looked much worst from the outside. the body this time came away with only a few minor bruises, however when i popped the hood, the engine bay was emptied. i had the autolock and the factory alarm. damn b*ches!!! :mad

I had my car broken into once. Nothing to serious, but enough to raise my premium on my insurance.

sux man. at least you're ready to move on. its not worth fixing over and over just to have it stolen again. from looking at the pics its not as bad as i thought. they still left plenty of stuff (lights/tails/air bag/motor mounts/body parts/etc).

I feel your pain, but mine wasn't as bad (95 Si HB). I would get the WRX STI. If anything happens to my baby, I think I am going to aim for an acura or Lincoln.


Keep us posted on what way you go!!1 Good luck.

well guys, here is an update, i talked to the gal who was handling the case (my orginal assessor had jury duty, go figure) and she told me over the phone that the car was a total loss. i mean she didnt even go look at the car, i just told her over the phone of the damages and she got a tow truck to tow the car to their salvage yard the next day.

at this point i am driving a rental 2005 cavalier with no frills (no power windows and locks), this cost me nothing cause the insurance is covering 30 dollars a day for me

Johnny Tran, unlike you i am moving to the dark side, getting away from the honda family (by the way, nice car especially with your suspension setup). i thinking of getting the wrx even though with my first test drive i wasnt all too thrilled about it

thank you guys for all your support!

We had 11 cars get broken into in one night at my house (steal the sound systems). Thank god my car was not at my house. They never caught the ppl. Where I live if u take ur car to the movies there is a good chace it will get broken into. Well look at it this way it is a chance for a new begining. Hope everything works out.

wow, thats crazy, 11 cars in one night,
they took my stereo and speakers also, i actually went back to the impound to get my speakers, i thought they didnt take it out cause i saw the stock covers on the doors, low and behold after i popped the covers off the speakers were gone, even the back ones too, they took those from the trunk, cutting a hole underneath.

once i get more info ill posted, i wondering how much insurance will give me

Man, that hurts, i guess you can take some comfort knowing it wasn't a preschool hack job. whoever did it had some real experience behind them. i didn't see many cut wires or broken panels, everything's been neatly unbolted and closed back off. Hope the insurance goes well. make sure the get you at least the replacement value of the vehicle.
