Damn dude, everyone was hoping for some clear pics of your car, now this happens. Saw your post in the april car of the month, and now this happens.

Damn for that backdamage, otherwise you could have fix your car easily...

Would just hate if you left, stay on the forums... then you won't be a stranger when you return with your M3

yea, it sucks the frame is all messed up in the front and it would be too expensive to get it fixed RIGHT down here, i thought about it and can be fixed, but i dont have the time or cash to get her fixed

Damn Miguel. Wow I feel really bad. I know you defintely tried to get that car to its best shape. Its a shame to see it go. The main thing that matters is that you are ok> Those pictures look horrible. Glad to see you're safe and hopefully uninjured.


Hope you stick around.

I really feel for you, I lost my first car in an accident. It's really really hard. I hope that you enjoy your eclipse for however long you have it. If it wasn't for my wreck I wouldn't have ended up in a BMW. Hopefully you will end up with something better... I was in a Lincoln Contential in between cars of my choosing so just know it could be worse.

man, they really did a number to it, huh? Glad you're ok. I guess you're kinda out of the running for April COTM. On the bright side, Eclipses are FUN!!!

Wow, sucks dude. I wrecked my baby last fall, I know how it feels. Mine is still driveable, but very ugly. I haven't washed it or anything since August.

As it's been said, the important thing is your ok. There are plenty of Bimmers to buy but only one Miguel. Just look forward the ///M3!

Sorry to hear that bro!

But like everybody said your health and well-being are drastically more important than just a car. What exactally happened?

And don't worry about driving an Eclipse, they're not bad cars... just not a BMW! Cheer up d00d all we be better soon and if you sell your Eclipse and get an M3 you'll be better of than before. All things with time my friend, you'll be back in the ///M Power soon enough hopefully!

You could sell your car and what not that should get you some $$$ or insurance will definetely...

thanks everyone, unfortunatley i didnt have full coverage on my car, cant afford it, all it had was liability, tha accident happened when i was going to work, i took a curve near my house that i have taken hundreds and hundreds of times before with no problem, but i guess that was like oil or diesel on the road since we get alot of 18 wheelers around here, car lost control and went straight into a wall then spun or something, and hit that back end then kept spinning and landed some 70 feet away perfectly centered on my lane with my heart ready to blow up
