Got into an accident

So last night after i brought my friend home i was driving and hit a patch of ice and lost control of my car. i ended up doing a 180 and smacking into a parked car. i've only had the car for a week and a half and it dosn't even have 700 miles on it so now my baby is headed to the repair shop.

here's a few pics i took of my car since i was in a rush

Boo that's gonna cost alot so I'm assuming insurance covers it. Can't do anything about accidents like this. They just happen that's why I hate winter driving.

accident

How is the radiator and radiator support. chances are if the 5 mph bumper did what it's susposto then it needs to be replaced but should have saved everythign else. from the look of it repairs from honda should be under a grand. I hope you rdedictubale is $500 or less. If it's not you migh as well do some upgrades, mugen front bumper instead of stock, possible front lip as well, should cost as much as a new stock bumper. When **** happens you just got to konw how to handle your ****. by the way vote for me on motorpride, I've been worknign on mysite and need votes the leader has 100+ votes i've got 28.

Yeah i know thats mean and i shouldn't say it..but it breaks my heart to see a brand new S2000 get smashed up

It takes alot of responsibility to own and drive a car like that..If you mistreat it it will turn around and bite you in the ***..Usually youll know if there is black ice when your driving just because how cold it is outside...S2000 are not meant for driving in super cold conditions with the tires they have...

Remember the twin turbo MR2's??? ive seen those get smashed up bad by people who just lost control of them...

I hope they fix it up perfectly

that's not entirely true. if you search the s2ki forums, you can find slightly used '04 headlights (a PAIR not a single headlight) for $350. and since '04 and '05 use the same headlight/tail lights you just have to plug and play

it breaks ur heart, try owning the car and have this happen to u within the first few weeks. as for the black ice i couldn't see it, and there was nothing that could have been done to avoid except not going on that night. plus the s200 is my daily driver so there isn't much i can do about not driving in the cold, plus its a much better option than my 72 vette

i dont know if this is the problem or not so dont jump at my neck...
but dont buy a RWD car 1st in the winter if changing from a FWD car and 2nd if you cant drive well on snow/ice.

Dont know if its you or not, but I know if it was on ice and no snow then there is nothing you can do as I slide all the time on ice.

i didnt know that AUTO BODY SHOPS search forums for parts to fix their cars. they get OEM parts that comes with OEM prices. You can't find a brand new headlight for s2k for less than $500. when i scratched a piece of my tsx headlight it cost $800 from the dealer.
