Sooo...it has happened. I was driving on my way to school, noticed the roads where pretty slippery this morning after a slight rain during the night so i took it easy. Was coming up to a red light doin about 5 mph when my car gets nailed from behind by another guy headed to the same school, and flys a good 15 feet forward. He was driving an Acura TL which he recently obtained from his daddy who just bought a brand new 335i. He couldn't open his drivers door and had to get out through the passenger side. My car looks completely fine, up until you open the trunk, the trunk floor looks like an accordion and is shifted to the right.

Oh and yes, my car has been back to stock for a while now

I'm assuming so, I'm willing to bet he's more pissed than anything. The car was coming along nicely. Good luck with everything bro.

yeah when you wake up its gonna be the worst soreness you have ever experienced in life, good to know that you didn't get too banged up and that your car wasn't obliterated.

Glad to hear you're OK. Betting that TL is totaled though (frame damage?). Such a waste of a nice car. You think they will be able to fix the elantra? It doesn't look too bad from the outside.

few things. yes, you will be more sore tomorrow. i still have stiffness/soreness in the mornings from my accident in APRIL...yes, 11 months ago. but mine was me t-boning a guy at ~40-45mph (his fault)

your car may be totalled. my mom had an HD, someone rearended her at about 20-25mph, her trunk floor accordianed up. from the outside, it just looked like the bumper needed realigned, but the body shop said that the trunk floor pushed in her back seats base. good thing she was trying to sell it because she realized she couldnt afford it. <1 year old, and totalled it out. i think the value was 10k, and repairs would have been about 8

glad to hear your ok. i was rear-ended by an uninsured illegal immigrant who was doing ~70 (from what the police report says) in a 45 zone, and i was turning right, so i was going pretty slow. my 05 GT hatch was totaled with barely 3k miles on the clock.

i didnt feel the sorenesss til the next day, but stupid me thought nothing was wrong cause i woke up with a little kink in my neck that morning. i should have milked it for all i could! the guy took off running, and from what i know he still hasn't been caught. take it easy and dont do much of anything to aggrivate the muscles.

i've always wanted a GTI especially because i work at a VW dealer. I'll see what happens with the money i get from this, and for my 18th birthday coming up. If not then maybe a 2001 Audi A4 or a 2003-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Get your *** to a doctor now! Every kind of doctor you can get to. A pscyhologist so that you can express to him how much pain your in. A chiropractor, a ortho-specialist, everyone and anyone. The easier route would be to get to a personal injury attorney, he'll have all these guys lined up for you and set you up with appointments. If this kid is driving a TL, and dad's got a 335i, they at least have enough insurance for you to get a 335 of your own.
