Holy sh*t, very glad you are ok. That definitely could have ended up way worse. for great build quality.

I crashed my '11 last year, while not nearly as severe as the one shown here, the cockpit held intact. The car was totaled by the insurance company though. I hit the guard rail on the highway at about 55mph. front and rear driver side areas were the impacts. I walked away with only a minor neck muscle pull that lasted a few days. extremely solid cars.

Did the airbag burn the **** out of your thumbs? Mine was a 3rd degree burn. Skin instantly boiled and fell off. Took 3 months to heal.

Note to self: In an accident, protect my thumbs first

Ironically, I think this is the position you DON'T want to be in at the time.
