Re: OMG - hopefully not someone on this forum - fatal accident in Palm Beach, FL

Sorry for reviving this sad subject but I just joined the board today and learned about the Palm Beach crash. When I saw the pictures I realized that I had recently seen the car on an auto insurance auction site.

I've attached some of the pictures.

Ohhh Man... Did you have to, really?? Not surprised that the insurer is still trying to make a buck off this. But this brings back bad memories. Rest in Peace Dani.

Engine looks to be intact - no? The car HAS to be a total loss with that high of a repair cost - by definition. I think it's simply being parted out...

yeap. This accident is old. Alcohol was involved. He was former forum member LuciferM3. He was pretty young too. Sad. But True.

The whole thing is crazy and devastating. May he rest in peace.

On a side note, I didn't know the M had knee airbags?
