Glad you'll be picking your car up soon. Summit White was my first choice but the early unavailability helped me go black, same stripes though. I haven't seen many, if any, with the orange rally stripes on the white and it does look T-E-R-R-I-F-I-C!

did it smell inside the car after the airbags went off?
dont know too much about the smell but the car filled up with smoke from the deployment of the bags. I thought something was burning but it was just crud from the bags. they shot white junk all over inside, I can't wait to detail it myself, I am sure the company did a bomb detail job but I have all the toys to make it perfect! except a high-powered shop-vack:drool:

to drive the car down the road alittle after the accident I had to pull the airbags out the window and then put the windows up to hold them out of the way so I could see, They replaced the front right fender rear quarter panel passenger door, no glass was broken. Bolth the right sides brake system's (rotors,brake shoe, etc...) Bolth wheels on the right side, had to realign the frame.... hopefully it's all back to gether like humpty :D

the frame got messed up?!?!?! ouch. ive heard alot of bad stuff about cars that get frame damage. not to scare you but, even if they get it back to normal, the cars not going to drive or ride the same.

that powder from the air bags, i heard smells pretty bad and can ruin the smell of the interior.

I figure at least $20K of repairs went into it. I hope it's as good as new!

+1 I can't believe they didn't total the car. I thought, for sure, that every car was considered totalled if the frame gets bent.

Glad you have your car back. I had mine taken away for 3 days to get some scratches painted and I just about lost my mind. That rental was killing me! **** Kia...

Alot of body shops have a laser frame machine that will make sure the unibody is back to factory specs. It will drive exactly the same as before if no bent stuff was missed. (control arms , etc...)
Over the next few days be sure to note any weird noises or pulling to left or right while driving. Try to get it up on the highway for a few miles to really feel it out.
The other long term way to make sure everything is ok, is check for any uneven tire wear.
Good luck! Happy cruising:thumbsup:
