I'm sorry dude. If this happened to me, I would be devastated.
I feel a lot safer in my GLI now! Glad you're alright. If you replace you wheels, I'll buy em! I need a winter set!

I can definitely empathize with you on this one. I had suspension work done on my previous car for 3 days before I was hit by a 19 year old causing $13,000 worth of damage.
The Good: You're ok and that's all that truly matters.
The Bad: Personally I feel a car is just never the same after these things.

Damnnnnn, this sucks. I'm sorry to hear that dude. I am glad that you're okay. Hate to see this, but at least you're alright. Damn truck drivers.
I can imagine how you feel...I would probably be crying..like literally.
1. Need backstory, I cannot piece together what happened here. Just looks so odd.
2. Trucking company insurance will pay out.
I'm not a sue happy person but when it involved companies with irresponsible drivers who are not cautious or courteous with their loads then they should pay a little bit. Not millions, but it's only fair due to their negligence of hiring incompetent people.
What an *******. I hate trucks... the run over everything on city streets, and they throw rocks and chip paint and windshields on the highway like it's their job. Sorry about your GLI. This is what makes me scared of buying a new one.
We should get rid of semi's and replace them all with trains (like VW currently does with the Passat's shipment). Then companies can use the littler Sprinter trucks to move cargo around within cities. Those trucks are better for the environment and are far more maneuverable than an 18-wheeler (aka--no busted GLI).
Go to a dealer and NOWHERE ELSE for repair.
NOBODY can do it like a REAL VW TECH.
Sorry your dealerships have assclowns for REAL VW TECHS.
Mine, not so much.
Not a single ****ing rattle in my GLI, or my previous 12 SE 2.5
So, the body shop is trying to order my bumper and has had 3 different ones sent to him, all of which don't fit properly. When I called the parts dept at my local dealer he said there were 5 different bumpers for the MKVI GLI!!! What the heck is the difference?!? I cant find one...
