I want to F*(*(ken Cry

Some fucken asshole just now swerved on the highway and flung a full fucken tire my way, I had nowhere to go and I tried to center running it over. Fucked the whole bottom of the front of the car and cracked my passenger side CF splitter. I literally want to cry. To fix it properly, easy 2k. WTF

I hit a large truck tire back years ago. Scared the hell out of me. This can be made right. Find a good shop. Glad you are okay.

Damn that sucks bro. Glad to hear you are okay though and don't fret as a good body shop will have this fixed in no time. Excuse my blonde moment but was it like a spare tire or the tire actually came off the other guys' car?!

My condolences man....but you are ok and uninjured...so you are already way ahead of the game!

Yeah, too many near misses for me (potholes, tires, exploded wood pallets, shoes, furniture, etc). I always feel like my time will come someday...

Makes me just want to hit the track.

i'm glad you are ok. Could have been worse! metals can be repaired. Plastic can be replaced, but human lives can't.

It's an easy fix, and it could have been much worse... in a couple of weeks you;ll laugh about it.
thanks everyone for your responses. It is nice to have people that care about me being ok. much appreciated...

below are some pics...

My floor jack cant get under the car, there is no jack with the car, and when i tucked the under shield back in and drove, it started sagging again right away. so no driving today

i think i am going to golf, and hopefully shoot my best game ever so i feel better about something

OP, that sux, but that's what insurance is for, hopefully the other driver's. Have a cold one and enjoy the good things in life, like the fact that you own possibly the most balanced performance/daily driving car ever made in history, ever

Drive on a 2x4 to get the car high enough to get your jack under the car.


Sucks about the incident.....

Damage isn't too bad. In the worst case, it's euro-bumper time!
