Angry DAMN! Mother Fcukn Semi's!!

So I was driving on I-45 going back home to Dallas from Houston, it's about 6:30p.m. and doing about 90 to 100 mph. There's a 350z in front an SUV on the side and a Volvo behind me and we're just cruising all trying to just get home. Then the idiot in front of runs over a freaking semi-tread in the road and shoots it directly back towards me, I cant swirve b/c I have an SUV on the right side of me a small shoulder to the left and a Volvo behind me so there wasn't much I could do...BOOM!! is all I hear after I run that damn thing over and on my cluster I get a warning, so I'm thinking I might be losing tire pressure but I really don't care b/c it comes with the run flats but I still want to see what happend. I pull over and get out and see my passenger side fog light completley ripped out and the front bumper CRACKED! I'm cussing up a storm pissed the hell off and pretty much thinking about how much this is going to cost, I still haven't taken it in but I plan on it next weekend and then I'm sure I will be cussing up a storm again. Anyway just had to tell my tale and express how much I truley hate those damn semi-treads that are just left in the middle of the road for someone to run over.

I swear, Houston has to be the Semi capital of the world. I remember hearing somewhere that Houston is the city with the highest rate of accidents involving Semis.

Well I'm a little joyous right now...I think I might be getting the 335i...I have a friend working for Classic BMW, the place we got our 325i. .If anyone wants a good deal go here!! Well I'm going to get my car fixed, and also see what kind of deal I can get for a 335i. Hopefully I will either get it this weekend or next who knows?? I'm stoked!!!!!!
