so yesterday i was driving home from school with 4 other kids crammed in my hatch going 25 on a main road, and all of a sudden the guy in front of me is stopped and i slam on the brakes and ram strait into this guys amg mercades. thankfully my car wasnt that bad, just a bent radiator support, bumper and hood. his car had a couple of scratches and a slightly bent exhaust tip and he gave me a rediculous bill of 750 dollars!! he owns a body shop, one which i have applied to in the past so he said he would go easy on me, but wtf?? basically for the next couple of weeks/months im screwed for cash. i had so many plans for my car!!!
anyway, ill get pics up soon enough.
peace.

amg mercades.

thats what it is right there. dude are you serious??? do you know how much those fucking cars cost? and because of it, how much paint is for them?? now i know because its the owner of a body shop he will charge you what he calls fair, but thats really not to bad compared to what it could have been.

and its mercedes, by the way:aww

Exactly, even if it weren't an AMG the fact that it's a Mercedes ensures that the paint and parts are going to be expensive. The car's F'in German bro, their shit is always high priced. Plus he's going to have to at least replace one of the mufflers. Also, I bet it was more than a scratch on his bumper to if it bent your radiator, hood and bumper...at least he didn't make you do it through insurance so your rates could skyrocket for the next 3 or so years

That's a German car for you. I wouldn't have expected any less. It's definitely bullshit. I'd get further quotes if I were you if its feasable.

how many rally races did nissan win? i know when group b was still around, audi dominated. how many nissans win when the audi r10 is racing in the p1 class?? face it german engineering is something else. they even lead the jet airplane race in ww2, america was far behind in developing a jet airplane. if germany had enough time to advance the design a little more, the outcome could have been different.

japan is great in its own way, they have many other great advances in technology. but it kinda makes you wonder what the hell have we accomplished lately?

Someone backed into my crx and put a dent about the size of a baseball in the door, got an estimate and it came to 550. I got all the money for it from the guy, and left the dent.

My point is that if you flip through a real estimate in Most small fender benders most of the cost is in labor not materials and paint

i meant we as a country. what has america accomplished lately?
weve accomplished a pointless war in iraq, were about to start another in "neo" georgia, and we've somehow managed to become dependent on gas even though we as a people know were getting bent over for it. i whole-heartedly support democracy, but you know communism does have its strong points. ~bomb~, raid, supply. a simple concept really:rolleyes

Shouldn't have been following so closely.
give more distance due to the fact that your car was jammed packed with Mexicans.

I thought about that too; plus the fact that you smoke chronic. So you probably had a couple dudes in the cars smokin a blunt after school and weren't paying attention...whoopsy:hehe
