I live in the Washington D.C. area, and hit a guard rail on the way home from snowboarding....thought I could take a corner at 50.....nope...dont think the tires were warmed up enough,,,,BFG g force... my headlight is smashed, front right fender is bent, door is bent...and back right.... also my back right tire hit the guard rail on the other side of the road, and cracked my rotor...the toe and camber are way off, but was able to drive it 140 miles home after the accident.

if anyone knows a good shop around this area please reply. I think I can get the parts from a friend at cost, just need to get the car fixed..

I have a 5th gen base 5 sp.

thanks

BF G-Force tires are awesome too... but then again, you took a turn pretty fast. Sounds kind of like my accident 3 weeks ago with my parents car :s

Is your rear quarter panel messed up? If so that's $2,200 in damage by itself. That should cost well over 4 grand in damage :( Sorry to hear, post some pictures.
