Thumbs down My first accident: I fail.

I dont know where my head is today. My buddy just moved and wanted to store his M3 racecar at my house since it would be "safer" than at his parked on the street.

Well, I fail. He parked it butt-to-butt behind our integra. This morning I was in a rush to get my gf to school and backed right into his car. I was so used to just backing straight up into the alley that I didn't even think to look behind me.

The integra:

I know I'm lucky he's being so cool about it. Cracking jokes about my "bumper car" already.

That is one of 3 of his E30s. He has his daily which is an 88 325is and another 325is that is going to be his Pro3 race car.

Doesn't look bad at all. My gf put a similar dent in her forrester, I took off the bumper skin and jammed my knee inside and pushed out 75% of the dent, some turtle wax got rid of most of the paint damage. I was pretty pleased for a free, no-insurance-involved fix, but I didn't even get a bj outta it. Might be why she's my exgf.

It's funny how much less you care about your car once it becomes a track ****. I used to be super ---- (still have a Porter Cable and a bunch of compounds) and now I just don't give a ****.

It's hard not to be ---- when you own a black car.

That must be part of why he's taking it so well. That doesn't change how rare it is though :(

I didn't have a chance to take a closer look, but i'm worried it might have dented the sheet metal next to the brake light. I didn't have a chance to get out of the car and look closely and compare it to the other side before heading to work.

Cheapest used E30 M3 around here goes for $7k in crappy condition, saw one last summer go for $13k with only 68k miles. Such a sexy car and easy to work on.
