  5. Big day today, didnt take many photos but you get the jist of it. Dont suppose anyone has a rolling body lying around? Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  6. Right. I can go into details now. In short, im not covered for this as i wasn't the one driving and being under 25 anyone else under the age of 25 isn't covered. It hurts but i understand where the insurance company is coming from. At current im $510 down for glasses that went flying and tomorrow i have to get the car out of the tow yard which will set me back another $1378. The girl who was driving has agreed to pay for the car and all the damages but has told me that i wont get the money for months or she will have to pay me weekly. Her next offer which im yet to take is to take her car ( A manual, turbo MR2) as payment for my car and im trying to get her to pay for the towing as well, which again will be a weekly instalment thing so im not impressed as im the one out of pocket. but we are lucky that i managed to get out relatively unharmed and her with a small cut on the shoulder and a concussion. As to what happened in order to cause the damage, she wasnt paying attention and as we came around the bend she noticed we were going into the other lane and yanked the steering wheel to the left and smacked the brakes. All 4 wheels locked up and we understeered into a bank which sent the car airborne and we rolled a few times. Im surprised that neither the ABS or the airbags worked. As for those wanting to help, just do me the favour of checking your insurance is up to date and allows other drivers, and keep yourselves safe. This has been a very eye opening experience for me and i dont want more people getting into this sort of trouble like i did. Oh, and if anyone sees a facelift, manual twin turbo legacy for sale thats relatively cheap, let me know. it would be such a waste of my ST kit if i bought something else.
  7. I think it may be time to tell the community. Be aware however that insurance hasn't told me anything so I'm not going to speculate on anything. However, this happened yesterday. It's a weird relationship that people like us have with cars and some of us see them as tools, others as family members. My car was the latter. She was the only thing that made me happy no matter what and while she was relatively stock and the most reliable car I've ever had she was fun. Hopefully I will get another one day. No one was seriously hurt, and it was not my fault. But hey, these things do happen. Goodbye Legacy. Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  8. Yup! Got back to work yesterday after being in Auckland for a bit and smacked it in over the pit. So far it feels a lot better in turns but I haven't driven it hard yet. Will definately need the front one but gotta fix my rear main seal and crunchy gearbox first haha Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  9. Actually modified it! First real mod, a 20mm white line rear sway bar Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  10. I tried to get out of the way but best I could manage was it hitting right behind the driver front wheel. It managed to get in the gap between the wheel and the sideskirt. It almost stopped the car Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  11. Hit a possum going at roughly 100k [emoji17] Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  12. Killed it [emoji17] only an alternator but it's enough Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi all, does anyone know where to get new door and window seals? Dont want to buy them from a wrecker. The ones on my BH are torn and falling off Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  14. How much would it be to ship it up do you reckon? Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  15. Yea, just feel like they are way over priced. GC kits are quite a bit cheaper and I dont mind going second hand either Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
