It's nice to have newbies who are so wise and so willing to to share their expertise with helpful posts like this one. You've attacked someone different with every post you've made here. We're happy to hear from you if you have something helpful to contribute, but please take it somewhere else if insults are all you have to offer. Chill.

Perhaps you should learn something called class?

Tell ya what, please go drive your car into two inches of water at highway speed on brand new tires and report back with your results. I'll reimburse you the drawers/pants you'll ruin in the process. (You did say inches so the minimum would be 2 but by all means feel free to do more than that)

Dude. The OP hydroplaned changing lanes, it happens all the time. Dudes should learn to handle a 500hp car? Maybe dudes should understand 500hp isn't being put to the road changing lanes in heavy rain. Accidents do happen darling and whether you're in a Toyota Corolla or C63, you're just as likely to hydro.


OP -- Glad you're safe. Hope you don't get a whole big insurance run around and honestly hoping for a total so you can get back on the road in something fresh and accident free.

considering i lived in Toronto for 20+ years and drove on the 401 when there were feet of snow outside ..a few inches of water is nothing.

if you people **** yourselves over a few inches on water on the road maybe you shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car in the first place

and no, any tire shop will tell you proper tires that are inflated properly will not just eat *** and stop working.

This guy's a real gem coming on here lately and slamming people for no reason. Must've gotten tired of beating his dog or whatever. I'd guess it was MHP Andy from the way he's talking, but to give Andy credit he's smarter than this guy. I thought about copy-pasting your posts to put in the "stupid-shaming" thread, but that's kinda insulting to the genuinely dumb posts who go there. You're just a simple a55hole. We should make a new thread just for you, snowflake.

The guy got unlucky and wrecked his car. He already feels bad enough. Why don't you just leave it alone little man, and go back in your hole.

Glad you're OK OP. Unfortunately you're car may never be the same again. You may need to fight for OEM parts all the way and depending on the assessment of damage, you may need to push them to total the car.
I was in a situation many years ago in my 2007 BMW 335i where a drunk driver ran into me at a freeway underpass intersection after running 2 red lights. and they assessed the damage at 12,000 and 3-4 weeks. 9 weeks and 21,000 later and the car never drove the same after. I only had it for 6 months before that accident. I was too young and inexperienced at the time to put pressure on them to use all OEM parts. And I done so who knows what the total price would've been.
I ended up taking a loss on the car a year later because it was so unsatisfying to drive. If I were you I would definitely push for a total loss if possible.

Neat, I am from a place that makes Toronto look like the tropics... We aren't pissing ourselves over water on the road, it's about you just coming in here talking down on everyone like you've never made a mistake in your life.

Look, the point is people make mistakes and don't need others berating them every time. Coming here simply just to try a lecture and show us your man card might behind a wheel does nothing. People make mistakes, you make mistakes, stuff happens and life goes on.


OP -- Think you'll get the word this week? Going back through each time and seeing that crease on the C pillar others have pointed out leads me to also believe you have structural problems. Just wish we had some better pictures to go off of.

On the money comment. The OP has enough to worry about.

id hate to see you guys behind a old muscle car that barely has drum brakes yet alone a ESP system to hold the rear end together

idk why dudes buy a AMG and expect it to drive fine on completely wrecked tires ..i see this over and over and over again on the forums

"Oh my tires are completely ****ed but i have some on order!!!!!" ...why wouldn't you replace once they have less then 30% left ..why wait until it has 10

anyways OP next time buy new tires before you crash ..no trying to be a dink but man what if you were going through a school zone and your car ate *** and you smoked some kids? seriously, say it can't happen but ive seen it happen tons
ugh....

I'd rather have it totalled, unless that's just a shadow on the upper quarter panel.

The info in this thread says he was on the freeway doing 65mph.

Given: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_...y_jurisdiction

Potentially 5mph over the limit depending where it was?

Lmao wow tough crowd in here! I replied in here on how I crashed a vehicle in similar conditions and was playing into the other posts made. Didn't think I would get attacked by the sympathy patrol on his rag

I'll make fun of whoever I chose to especially when no one was hurt. This is a forum if you have thin skin then don't post up your f ups
