Now the reality shots...





1. Yes, that is blood.
2. Deer and WRX's tangling at 70 mph is usually a bit more extreme than mine, but it still sucks none the less.
3. Oh yeah, did I mention that was blood...lol.

Yeah, but I haven't heard back from them yet. I'll have to call them Monday to see what's up.

I can't wait to get her back.

Gotta put rims on and start the whole thing over again.

Haha, the deer didn't make it...lol. I wsa the 3rd one that hit it. That's the reason my car sustained the least damage. It was down when I railed it. It was raining like no other and I couldn't see it in the road. I got into the left lane because of upcoming cars on the rh shoulder. The minute I did this...

You guys can figure out the rest from here.

When I hit it, it knocked the bumper cover off actually, I half assed snapped it back in. There are a few broken clips, so that will have to be replaced.

As for Price, I actually got it for almost 22K. I forget the exact amount, but I didn't really have to dicker too much. My insurance only went up $15/month for the new car.

So now I pay $115. My payment is $393.66.

So, it's roughly just over $100 more a month than my bugeye was. I can justify that.
