So I got my G8 at the end of March and its been great so far.
And then this happened Monday:

Thanks everyone, I'm a bit hurt,but overall I'm ok.
A guy coming from the opposite direction on the street i was on was waiting to make a left turn. I don't know if he saw saw me or not, or wether he thought he had enough room to make it. So he floored it and next thing I know I just saw the car coming at me. I was able to swerve at the last minute, other wise it would have been a full force front impact. So he hit the side of my car and sent me spinning all the way to the top of the sidewalk.
I hope the car gets fixed soon, it's a shame seeing it just sit like that.

They didn't which at first it stroked me as a surprise but looking back at the accident and if you look at the damage on the doors, the impact was on the lower side of the doors. I'm guessing if the impact would have been right above or at the handle levels maybe then the curtains would have gone off?

It's the G8 curse. I got my precious back in 09 and not one week after I had her, I got backed into by a Jeep Liberty. Crunched the whole driver side front end. I was soo pissed.

Lol, I doubt that i can even handle that with my injured back now :(.
I'm getting the estimate today, so I will find out how bad the damage really is.

Good luck man. I almost strangled a teenager after I witnessed him door ding my g8 only a month after I got it. Instead I approached him and let him know "firmly" that he needs to be more carfull in parking lots, and that was the first dent on an otherwise perfect car.
I guess accidents happen. That's life. It's all in how you deal with them and move on.
Again, i hope you're ok and heal quickly.

Oh man that sucks. Sorry to see this happen. Regardless of what trim, you never want to see such a beautiful car get hurt like that.

Yeah, it's a real shame. In other news, I finally got the intial estimate and the car is not totaled and we are looking at almost $8k worth of repairs.
