I'd be pissed too. However, the first day I had my license I backed out of my driveway into my neighbors Lexus which was parked in the street. Have some sympathy for the kid; his life is going to suck for the next few months.

Sorry to hear. Been there done that. Got hit by a drunk 16 year old kid few years ago, who had just got his license the DAY BEFORE, while I was in my then brand new 911. :(

Glad to hear you are safe, Doc. :)

Yeah it was bad. Hit hard enough (while I was stopped at a red making a right turn), that he flipped my car over and lodged me against the traffic signal. 6.5 months of physical therapy, soft tissue damage, broken windshield glass on eyelid.

Lots of pain:(:(

Yup mine was 930am in the morning. Supposedly the kid partied all night, and was driving home.

It was empty roads, and he ran a red light and veered and hit me T bone, while I was at the corner of the intersection and no cars around.

Karma I suppose, since I am such an A hole in real life.

I will say, the kid was nice about it and I ended up feeling sorry for him. At first, I thought maybe he had taken off, but he parked about a block further down and came running back to see if we were all ok. His parents were there before the cop, LOL.

:D Any pics of the BMW doc? Time to get the new M3?
That car has sentimental value and I won't be getting rid of it. I'll take some pics later.

Luckily, I called their insurance agent and they've already been informed, their policy is up to date and they are taking full responsibility....so far.

For the sake of consistency, the M3 will now need some form of forced induction once the repairs are made.

Glad you are okay.
