Wrecked my car... Update: Pics added!

Happened at 6:30 tonight.... basicly i was headed to town... was raining about 5 min earlier and just lightly sprinkling when it happened...... and like right at the little bridge, i was going around a curve, caught some water... started sliding, so i hit the brakes, then i guess my tires got traction again because i shot across the road (i was going 55 mph) then i hit a big dirt hill... then spun around and did a complete 360... and basicly i hit hard with the front passenger side.... lights gone and bumper is fucked up. Then that spun me around, so i hit with passenger side rear bumper... then it also hit with the drivers side section of the rear bumper, and put a big ol hole in it... other than that... there wasnt much damage, that i could see, but it was dark, so i am not for sure... my passenger side front rim may be all jacked to shit... it drove fine... so idk it may be ok. felt smooth except for the front bumper hitting up against the tire... im fine... didnt hurt me... no one was behind me or coming when it happened, so im lucky...


ill have some pics up sometime.... idk when though... :eek:


moral of story is.... dont go the speed limit in rainy weather... go below it!

i forgot to add, how much would a factory hood, front bumper, and rear bumper be for a 2003 civic ex? and would i be able to get a body kit cheaper? and possibly a CF hood?

u sure? becaue my friend was driving on the interstate, and a semis tire blew, and the tire hit his truck, cracking the bumper and denting the hood, and the insurance company bought him an aftermarket bumper... because it was cheaper.... and it only cost him 250 for the deductible.... rest was payed for....

all the people from my car club... besides 2 that didnt know how to install them... installed their kits themselves, and they looked good, and fit awesome... so idk... i think it just depends on the quality of it... and if its from a good brand....

www.carpartswholesale.com -- they are also an ebay seller.

Buy from them, then get the parts painted.

Few body kits look good, most are ricey or junk, oem is always better than a body kit (sorry kit owners).

If you ever want to sell your car, it'll sell way easier if it looks stock. A lot of people just HATE body kits. If you want to give it a makeover, do no more than a lip kit.

My 2 cents.
