this is the single worst experience of my life and i am absolutely gutted.
Well in that case you had a really good life. Cheer up, it's "just a car", nothing horrible really happened. I hate trashing something I've been pampering and upgrading for months and then it's all gone in a spiffy... Feel useless... But then you have to realize that it's a opportunity for learning and moving on to brighter tomorrows. As long as the problem ccan be solved trough monetary means - it's not such a big problem.
in the mean time i got to get rid of the silver one so i have room for it
I'll take the silver one of your hands for free !
