Rear Ended
 
On the 1st day I got my permit, I went out with my dad in my E30 convertible. We were all the way in in the right lane and needed to get over one lane to the left to avoid getting onto the highway. There were tons of cars in the next lane over and I couldn't change lanes so I slowed down with my signal director on and SCREEEECH BANG!!!! Some drunk woman in a ford explorer slamed into me from behind. Heres the cool part: Her car was pretty much destroyed from the left headlight to the windshield and my car was just badly dented with a blown out tail light. If i wasn't scared out of my mind I wouldve been laughing my ass off. Everything is like new now there was no major damage to my car.

naw i dnt have pics of the damage but the cops came like 2 seconds after the accident and they let me go but they made the woman stay for a sobriety test.

I always cringe when I read about this on an E28 and E30 because I am sure that I am going to see another classic lost to insurance total. You got lucky bro. Congrats on the ride and drive safe.

BMWFreak 03-02-2008 06:33 PM

Thnx man apprecitate it. :bdance
I wonder if after a certain # of years a well kept e30 will go up in price because its a classic. :dunno

pswirley 03-02-2008 06:46 PM

I think its only a classic to us nerd enthusiasts. The general public thinks its a dated BMW shaped like a box. The general public is retarded.

I think after 15 years yuo can set your insurance up as a classic vehicle. Orso i read on here somewhere.

its funny you say that because I get a lot of good responses from the general public for my car. they think its like a 95

Glad you and the car are ok. +1 to pswirly.

JetBlack328i 03-03-2008 02:18 PM

glad to hear your ok.. sucks to be the other driver though. I am sure she got plenty of tickets...Insurance will go up....etc etc etc...

Happy you and the e30 are alright, at some point the price of a good e30 might start to increase as they become harder to find, the e30 m3 is a collectors car and I could be convinced that it would be something that could be an investment.

+1 on E30 M3. Already hard to find, usually well maintained by an enthusiast.

BMWFreak 03-03-2008 06:57 PM

This might be a stupid question but what does +1 mean? :dunno

pswirley 03-03-2008 07:27 PM

+1 = Agreeing to the quote you have listed. An easy way to say that whatever you have quoted you couldnt have said better yourself. Then you can add any additional input that you have.
