Misery loves company - I could use a little sympathy!

I could really use some white light about now, and would appreciate some positive thought from you guys.

1:20 a.m. Tuesday morning, some dumbass takes his mom's SUV for some late night drifting in my quiet residential crescent. I've found out that what the cool kids are doing is skidding a vehicle by locking up the ebrake. When you're 15 or 16 and don't have a license, you don't have the skills. He made my two car garage into a three car garage. He's lucky he wasn't killed by the accident. Funny thing is that his mom and dad's insurance company is trying to avoid paying because of his lack of license or express permission to drive. That means I could be on the hook. I really don't need this right now...

Both of my cars were in my garage. The impact drove my M5 into my tools and workbench (about 6' forward). Estimated damages to the car are $15k, but I'm guessing it will go higher after looking at the quote and catching a few missed items (didn't get the right kind of headlight kind of stuff). The other car is can drive, but sustained some body damage. The house is gonna be about the same as the car when it's all repaired.
Glad that my family didn't have to watch the house burn down...

Sorry for the varying picture sizes - I'm too shell shocked to fix them right now.

Holy Sh!T, I'm really sorry this happened to you. I don't even know what to say. I cant imagine what you're going through.

I wish you the best and hopefully those bastards at the insurance company come through for you.

I would absolutley MURDER that kid and his whole family. They are 100% responsible and their insurance SHOULD pay because it was their car. You should also try and press charges or something against this little twat.

I'm sorry this just angers me to no end when people do things like this.

Wow that's awful!

Too bad the impact damaged your AC Schnitzer rear diffuser and your Tubi Rumore exhaust. Looks like it got the front splitters too.
Do you think these insurance people noticed the Vorsteiner carbon fiber hood on your car because I noticed it.

Well, if your insurance won't sort it....well it might a real shame for the perp.

I suppose the MoFo perp. got out fine?

I can't imagine the level of frustration and anger that is going through your veins.

At the very least, you and none of your family were involved/injured.

WTF!!!?? I also hope the home and car insurance comes through for you. Think of it this way - noone was killed, your garaged will get fixed, and you'll have a fixed beast in the end.

As long as you have your own insurance, you should be ok.

Seek a good lawyer, asap.
