e46 m3 crash

Sup everyone,

Little background first, i have a 07 335 coupe and i switched with my cuz who has a europrojektz m3. He was selling it and we wanted to drive each other's car just for the experience. What happened was that my light turned green, i started my turn and some girl in a prius was texting and eating chinese food, ran the red light, and t-boned me. The rest is history...

m3 was fully modded, i dont remember all the specs, but had a system, complete aftermarket body kit, gruppe m intake, eisenmann exhaust, pedals, wheels, and a lot others. I think all in all it was above 10k in mods.

Ouch..... that's gotta hurt. Are you ok? As I would tell everyone, get yourself checked out by your primary care physician. Don't settle with the insurance company concerning your injuries. Whiplash some times don't rear its ugly head until after several days.

He wasn't mad at all, as long as i was ok. He was trying to sell it anyway. Of course he was a little sad that he had to part with it like that, but he got almost the amount he was asking for because it was totaled and he wouldn't have cared how it ended up as long as i was fine...

Good, your health is always the most important. Cars can always be repaired, or in this case, replaced, but your health can't, no matter how much money you have. Did EMS take you to the ER to get you checked out?

That's really cool of him. Also glad that the car did it's job and let you return home and post what happened.

Whenever I see an E46 M3 in a wreck of any sort, my heart stops for a second
