Instead of goin down a 45degree slope into a swamp w/a buttload of trees that would have killed me the wires caught my wheels and jerked me back up onto the break down lane. at the very last minute the car did clip a tree causing major damage to the engine bay, pushed the front strut tower back 2 inches. Im lucky to be alive, the wires and the car saved my life. I wasnt speeding or doing anything stupid,, which is why I complain. The car was just TAKEN from me.
I was going on a one way street at 1am pitch black outside and a newer SUV explorer pulled out in front of me from behind bushes n **** near a house with no lights on I swerved out of the way as fast as I could and hit a oak tree and held my friends jaw together with the bone stickin out, his fault for not wearing a seatbelt and I didn't get sued or anything because it was his fault for being hurt in the accident. I got out of it with a bruise and a seatbelt burn. And of course a completly totaled BMW 7-series. Cops says "your lucky you were driving that car if you were in another car such as a honda you'd be dead".
I know how you feel. Plus I didn't have full coverage at the time so I spent cash wasn't making payments thank god but lost it all.

Depends on if you have full coverage or not. I didn't have full coverage on the 7-series and i totald it and got no money back but I payed cash so I didn't have to make any payments.
If you finance or lease a car and total it without full coverage or no insuracne you still have to make the payments on a totaled car that doesn't exist.
If you also total a car with no license *cough cough nudge nudge* with full coverage you aren't covered because your driving with no license.

I know you didn't total a car at 15. But in regards to that whoever did the reason why they got the money for the car is because at 15 your underage and you don't have a license. So technically its car theft which is covered by full coverage insurance and then you press no charges against the 15 year old.

Jake what camera/lens/shutter speed are you using. It usually saves in the properties in your photobucket pics

actually if you go to where your pics are stored and right click the image file it will show you the picture info:

the only way to get the V2's to show up at night without looking like a blurry mess is to manually set the aperture all the way down, put it on the tripod and set the shutter speed as fast as possible. I haven't gone to the trouble yet.

I was referring to night pics where they actually look like rings instead of headlights. You can clearly see Umnitza's night pics are prob done with an DSLR with F/22 and shutter speed at 1/2000.

SlimKim what are the settings for your sigpic?

yeah, but that's almost $1k better spent elsewhere IMHO, esp since the beast will need a new clutch in the next year or so : )


Edit: I see you are referring to the exterior trim, I thought you were referring to replacing my awesome wood paneling interior, replacing that is pricey for sure although it could be covered with some existing 3M stuff I already have.......maybe eventually.

The exterior trim I would want to do it right and that involves uninstalling them - which looks like a major time consuming PITA since you have to take the door apart.
