these pictures are the result of what happened when i was driving through an intersection with a green light and some inconsiderate young girl decided to turn right into the side of me coming the opposite way. we both had a green light to go straight and she thought that gave her right of way, even though she needed a green arrow to have the right of way.
anyway i thought i may as well share my pain with the rest of you. im having withdrawal symptoms already lol

Couple of new doors required there and some metal bashing.

Not concentrating on what she was doing stupid girl.
I guess she is lucky you didn't punch her. I probably would of if it was my TE 50.

hahaha yeah i was fuming when i got out and ready to do that i saw it was a p plater and thought it would be either1 or a few young guys but when i started walking up and saw a young girl on her own i thought i better calm down lol 6-7 grand worth of damage apparently maybe some suspension too from where she went into the rear wheel. its just the waiting now to get her back from the panel shop that hurts

Doesn't she have traffic lights where she's from? I'm surprised she knows what the colours mean.

thanx for the support guys at least it gives me an excuse to get the front bar resprayed to get rid of the stone chips. im just glad its not a write off its a good car that gives me absolutely no trouble. the panel beater said there may be some suspension damage where she went into my rear wheel but at least itll all be fixed. i wonder if theyll do my rear shock tower mounts while there at it lol
