it does have frame damage and its over 10k worth damage

You should be glad it's totalled, though. Nothing sucks worse than driving a car repaired from an accident. You'd notice every noise, and every gap and line in the body that isn't straight and even. I had a car hit in the rear right, and I wish it was totalled. I eventually traded it.

I am assuming you have the insurance to get a new SI.

I had $11,335 in damages to my car, the insurance company told me i needed 75% in damages for NY state for my car to be a total loss. sucks, although the shop did an amazing job and it does look as good as new.
side note: it was all cosmetic damage (but A LOT) the only mechanical thing that was treated was that the dealership did an alignment on it.
Lately, I've been considering more and more of cutting my losses on this car (resale value is going to be screwed thanks to carfax) and trading it in for the SI. I'm just trying to convince myself that driving standard won't be that bad! I'm lazy and enjoy my automatic lol.


If you dig control, you'll like the standard. Of course, my grandpa always said, "Drive it till the wheels fall off." If you cringe at the thought of a new car note, I guess just keep the old car.

You never know. My '03 EP3 -- inferior frame, etc. got front ended ($3,500) and hit at an angle that destroyed the left front end from the driver's door forward ($3,750). I didn't need to be realigned. It tracked truly and turned in the same way either direction. I couldn't believe it. The FG2 is a hell of a lot stronger and more crashworthy.
