Here's what happened, I was driving down the street minding my own business when someone swerved into my lane and caused me to swerve. I swerved head-on into a median (She/he didn't hit me). Note: I had put on brand-new catless headers from JDL the night before :rolleyes:. The driver drove off before I got any information and I was stuck there with the responding officers.

I have taken my car to the shop and it seems that the curb has torn up my bumper, pushed my radiator back, popped the driver-side tire, bent my brand-new headers, etc. I don't fully know what the damage is but we are hoping that the frame isn't bent.

All I can say is that this is the easiest way to get a bumper deleted.

UPDATE: 14k in repairs. Frame Bent.

my condolences - you unhurt?

got a dashcam?
Thank you. I'm perfectly fine but regret not getting a dashcam. You never think that this sh*t would happen only 6 months into owning a new car. I was planning on getting a dashcam but felt like it was not needed. But I am going to get one on every car I ever own. Also kinda sucks that my insurance will shoot through the roof with me only being 16.

Dash cam is a must. You never know what can happen and especially nowadays with how shity people can be, most will lie and try to put the blame on you.
