Shouldn't insurance have repaired the car back to pre-crash levels?

Scrolled down the list, and based on the description of a big fat red flat tire symbol, it looks like it's supposed to mean a complete failure of a tire.
Wonder if the DSC module failed instead of...

If you removed the trim and looked at it yourself, you might not be so sure of whether or not it was real wood.

But, like I said, I'm not a huge fan of wood. Carbon Fiber is a bit over done......

I'm starting to think that a better route to go if you want to retrofit HIDs is this:

1) Buy a cheap set of OEM look alike headlights. Depo makes a set that can be had around $300, Spyder makes a...
