My trunk shocks are basically non-existant, and once that thing almost snapped my spine when it came down on my back while I was reaching inside the trunk. I think I have a few cracks in my head too!


Not only are the doors heavy, the trunk lid is a monster. I've been nearly decapitated a few times by the thing...

It's the stretch in Irvine, between Barranca and the Tustin Market. Not that it's "safe", but it is pretty dead at 2 AM. Good visibility, four big lanes, and most nights, no traffic.

In any case, you're right about Civics. When I get into my friend's car and slam the door, I feel like I'm going to break it off. I'm just too used to the heavy doors on my e34.
