The end (UPDATE - asshole located)

Some presumably drunk asshole decided to end my VR4 ownership at 1:30am a few Wednesday's ago. Hit-and-run while parked in front of my house. The paperwork is all settled, and while the $6500 the insurance company offered me is a testament to keeping good records and providing market value details to the appraiser, 543 is toast. Complete loss, and with frame damage on the front, and body damage on both ends (hit me into my neighbor's car), there's nowhere to go with this poor girl.



Thanks to everyone on the board who helped me wrap my head around this car. It taught me how to tune. You all taught me how to tune, and I thank you for that. Special shout-outs to Jnava, GSTwithPSI, Paul thedsmguy, and of course my friend Evan aka EHMotorsports. May I put his skills to good use on the 335d I'm going to buy when I get back from my next business trip.

Part out on the way. Stay tuned...

That. Blows.
Only saving grace would be that at least you weren't sitting in the car when the collision occurred.

+1 on both.

And it looks like I'm moving to Beaverton this summer, will rethink any street parking!

There's obvious damage to the bumper core, but the skin itself looks fine (somehow). The light on the trunk cartridge was broken before the car got hit. I actually have the replacement light in my basement which I'll swap into the cartridge for the partout.

I think Curtis may have a point.

Can understand parting ways, and parting out, but consider leaving everything in the shell, complete.

Pull the upgraded motor and things that wouldn't be stock that lurk in the engine bay.

Somebody could put it all back together.

When my Colt got hit at right angles, I was surprised the front coupe style doors had no issues with opening and closing and the frame from the windshield back was unscathed.

My Colt was not worth pulling straight and everything got crushed in the engine bay, including the 4g15 that had just been rebuilt some months before. Completely rebuilt. Rusty car, first foray into the Mitsubishi world ....

So, consider that someone may want to buy the complete car and do the body work. It never hurts to try and could save oodles of time on your end.
