Officially totaled - the estamite to repair it was $14,489.99. Waiting to hear what they'll give me for it.



I had time to get over to the other lane, but with other cars and trucks in the range, I didn't want to risk a collision in an emergency lane change. At the time, the best felt option was to risk running over it. Methinks the little handle thing was the thing that clipped, the rest was just too short, and without that handle or whatever sticking up, this would've been a different story!



So I'm researching new or new to me vehicles. Time for fun!

Good luck in your next vehicle search. If not the same car.

That's the same number they gave me for the buy out after the lease.

Probably, that handle might have kicked the whole thing in to a tumble under your car. Yikes! I wonder what it looked like after having relations with the underside of your car.

WRX!!!! Or you might want a Crosstrek for ground clearance

Don't argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

This sort of situation is the reason my first mod was a skid pan. In research my new impreza had the same ground clearance as my previous car (a mkv jetta) and from past experience with the jetta and its skid pan (diesel geek ) It paid itself off many MANY times.

Sorry for your misfortune but you made the best/safest choice and other motorists surely are in your debt . good luck with the hunt.

First pic is prior to install, 2nd is the jetta
