Well....I more than likely totalled the Focus

Long story short...it was my fault. I've never even been close to being in an accident before and then this happened. Turned in front of somebody and they messed up my front passengers side.

No pics unfortunately.

I find out the estimation on Monday and will likely find out if it's totaled or repairable on Monday or Tuesday. If I had to guess I'm thinking it will be totaled. Kinda puts me in a crappy situation as I still owe money on it. Hopefully I'll get enough to pay off what I owe + the insurance deductible ($500.) Then I gotta just look for a cheap car that I may need to take a small loan out for.

I will likely still stick around here and keep up with what's going on though.

Well, I guess you can take it as a lesson whether or not the Focus is repairable...but hey, we all have our days. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" and all that jazz.

Hoping it's repairable though. What'd you get hit by?

This blows. Did you have gap insurance? If not you may want to look into it the next time you get a loan on a car.

Time to get another Focus so you can have two weeks of fun putting your Eibach suspension on it, lol.

To clear some things up I'm fine and so are the people in the other vehicle. Got hit by a 2000 Chevy Silverado. Virtually no damage to his truck other than some straps and red paint on the front bumper.

I do have full coverage on it so if they total it I'll likely get enough to pay for what I have left on the loan + the deductible.

As for my Eibach suspension the front passengers side is more than likely bent in half. The wheel looking like this \.

And Norcal...not two weeks, try two months haha.

If you end up having to get a cheap ride, just buy a cheap Focus that has 150k miles or something. I recommend a hatch. ;)

I can feel for 'ya....
Totalled out my '03 ZTW on Oct. 27th - the day after my birthday.
As a damage appraiser, I can tell you that unless it was a real minor hit, it's going to be a total loss. If they got you on both doors, you're talking about replacement of the rocker panel and center pillar, putting the vehicle on a frame rack to restore the correct dimension points, plus replacing of the doors. My wagon's estimate was above $6,000 and all I did was roll over in soft snow....
