Or if you're driving an M3, downshift floor it switch lanes shoot the gap and live happily ever after.

should have killed the piece of sh1t Toyota driver
no offence to the car though

If you had a dash cam and caught it on tape then you would be certain off the hook, even if you smashed that FR-S

The damage is minimal and you should be thankful for that. It's also great that the avalanche was okay and the two of you just shook and parted ways.

Now you need to hunt down the frs driver and piss on his rims.


Reminiscence.
A couple of months ago I rear ended a dumbass driver. he was pulling out from an intersection WITH NO CARS ON THE ROAD then stopped as I was creeping forward and double checking for traffic. Luckily it just scuffed my front bumper strip, same on his pt cruiser. :coolstoryiknow:

YEA! He was driving a pt cruiser :shifty:


But seriously. He got out and was apologizing to me and said he was on his phone, texting.
If there was any damage done I now it would've been my fault.

Can't really comment on your situation OP...hard to say who is really at fault.

I hate scion drivers though. They are somehow always thinking they can 'beat' me when I am rolling in my M3.

You want to pay an attorney for this?

I think your lawyer fees will be more than your repair cost.

That'd have worked too if you had quickly checked your mirrors before stomping on the gas pedal. Good drivers you and me

You think this was possible why? This post made me laugh. Nobody is perfect.

He saw my car but couldn't react as fast. The Avalanche was a typical Philly car, so he didn't care too much because it was more minor paint damage than anything on his side. The problem was that he didn't see the red car until it sped away, after I hit him; and even then he thought that he was rear ended when I hit him so focus wasn't on the FR-S.

"max acceleration"

That phrase sounds so much better in a movie trailer voice.
