At least you ok and wasn't in the car or whatever you know. To me, if I was into off road, this is a perfect candidate or road race.

Great sleuth work sir!


Quoting EfiniX:

So, after weeks trolling craigslist and auto auctions, you'll never guess what I found...

Asshole

For reference, here's the piece of car that got left behind (with a part number that narrowed my searching considerably)



and a detail of the car



I've already had all of the conversations I need to have (my insurance, their insurance, and the police), and things are shaking out fairly well. Doubtful any charges will be brought, but it's assured that the owner of the car will be living with an insurance rate increase for the foreseeable future. The owner story goes like this:

She said she wasn't the driver - I believe this since the car was spotted a few weeks later on the road being driven by a man
She said the driver said he left a note - demonstrably not true, which will be confirmed when State Farm gets a copy of the police report

Of course, this doesn't suddenly make the car "alive" again, but it does give me a fair bit of closure.

VERY good sleuth work!

As mentioned doesn't bring her back but at the very least a bit of satisfaction that someone will be held accountable.

Well at least you found out who did it. Find a lawyer that needs everyones pants or go find the bitches new car bust out the drivers window and have a nice shit in her seat. Another idea is this click me. He who shoots the most the fastest wins.

In my state, a hit and run automatically makes it 100% fault of the person who hit and ran. The owner of the car can identify who was driving. I know it won't bring your car back, but you should be able to work with the Ins to get true value out of your car, or they can just replace it with some of the clean examples for sale, if they doubt the value of the car.

I am sorry for your purchase. Be prepared to have the car in at the dealer about every other month.

No worse than the Galant

In any case, I at least had the good fortune to get one with:

Two owners
A $4500 major service including intake cleaning 1000 miles ago
Most service records

Sure it will be a pain at times, but it also turns out I have an excellent BMW mechanic here in town as well.
