So it just started rainin out and I was on my street about 30 seconds from my house. There was a 90 degree turn, and being the reckless teen I am, I decided to take this turn at about 35 mph. Well in the middle of the turn my car started to fish tail because it was wet out, and I went across the double yellows and went up an embankment. :owned: I always take that turn really fast and thought nothing of it, but it just started to rain and It was really slippery. Only if I had the GT4 :sadcry: Here's the damage:

It doesnt look that bad, but the part in front of the driver's side wheel and behind the bumper is bent out, I think its called the front quater panel not sure tho. OOoo yea, and the crash did something to my exhaust, Its leaking somewhere around the cat or the flex pipe, and you can really smell C02? down there. Any suggestions on what I should do to fix it?

If it's leaking from the flex pipe there's nothing really you can do about it. Just take it to Midas or something and get a new front pipe. The damage doesn't look too bad. Looking at your pictures though I can't help but notice the front wheels lookin a bit odd. When was the last time you had an alignment done? The camber looks way out of whack. I don't think you knocked your alignment out of spec when you ran into the embankment, but the fact that the alignment is off probably contributed to your quirky handling and the accident.

woot, go wet driving...you should look at the post called "ouch..." yeah kinda the same story, only not. but it sucks nonetheless. And i hope that both of us learned our lesson, i'm finding myself driving a lot more resonably lately, which also means better fuel economy.
