      I think if the OP just bought his Fit two months ago and was willing to spend $5k in mods, probably the next car he wants is another Fit..

      Lucky that the woman admitted fault here, I could easily imagine her waltzing off after having the accident, with you being left having no evidence to corroborate your story.

      Damn! My accident $.02... Get an ER checkup just to be sure... Get a lawyer, the paperwork is a PITA and you will benefit in the long run... then see a Chiropractor ASAP.

      Good luck man, hopefully you'll walk away from this one unscathed.

      The first thing I did after I cussed her out was take a picture of her license plate.

      I guess your car is now unFit for duty....

      And seriously good job on not t-boning her. It would have ended worse for the both of you.

      I see one of these in the school parking lot once in a while, quite nice and never really see many on the roads.

I jumped a curb, took out the stop sign, and nailed the concrete piling of the fence, not to mention ripped out many bushes.

      The cops (two of them) both said I saved her life by not t-boning her at 55mph. Her car was untouched because of my quick reaction and my car is now kaput. She received two citations.

      the main question you should all be asking is did you spank that little ricer hatchback!? glad you're ok!

      Sorry to hear man, I really liked what you were doing to the fit!

      Hope the replacement is just as good, if not better.

      I'm glad she was honest at least.

      One of my coworkers did the same when a woman pulled into his lane without looking. He went off the road and ended up rolling his car. The woman didn't admit anything and my coworker ended up with citations.

      If it's another Fit I choose, it will be the same but better. Bilstein coils, 5-lug conversion, etc.

      Don't worry, her insurance company will do their best to try and lay some blame on you. I t-boned a chick that turned left in front of me while I was pretty much in the intersection and her insurance company is trying to lay 20% of the blame on me. Hopefully my insurance company can at least get me my deductible back.

      I just used my insurance contact when I got it after the car wash dented my car and denied paying. They're very helpful.

      That blows! Where did it happen? Any chance the cops let you get in a throat punch to the perpetrator?

      From looking at the accident I would say you have some severe neck pain and are in need a settlement check to feel better. This would be good therapy.

      McFarland road in Alpharetta. Cops were surprisingly very cool and we bullshat (?) about cars while waiting for the tow truck to physically lift my car out of the spot it rested in because it sank in the ground.

      I saw a 2013 Mustang this morning, what a busy looking rear end that would best be hidden by a dark color.

      First off, glad you're OK. Sucks you had to trash your Fit.

      But with no contact with her vehicle... I'm really curious to hear what her insurer is going to say to you. Even if she was charged with the accident.

      All will be answered tomorrow, and I know you'll keep us informed, but don't be surprised if you're in for quite the cluster-fun trying to get this covered by her insurance. I hope I'm wrong, but I definitely see a lawyer in your future regardless...
