: Just to let you all know these cars are built, here are some pics of my Bambi/cement barrier incident. There's a lesson to be learned here...HIT THE DEER!!! It may hurt, but it's alot less damaging than the cement barrier you may encounter when trying to avoid mother nature.

Joe, you seem like you're taking this very well, so i had to drop you a line. YOU JUST GOTTA LOVE HOW THOSE ROUNDELS MANAGED TO STAY ON THE HOOD AND FRONT LICENSE PLATE! These cars are the modern day equivalent of a sherman tank. Reminds me of a short story i read a few years ago, the moral was to drive the safest car you can afford, no excuses. It started out with a "good news' bad news" joke. "Bad news is i totalled my BMW. Good news is i was driving my BMW."
p.s. the pictures don't look THAT bad--was it totaled due to unrepairable damages or just the cost to repair? just curious what reason they gave.
