Wow, literally 20 minutes after putting on new front brake pads and rotors today, i was breaking in the pads and I got hit. Kid from high school blew through a stop sign and ran into me! I'll let the pics do the talking but they aren't pretty...Do you guys thing they will total out my dads miata?

NO,THEER is no way your miata is totaled.go find a red fender and door on ebay.if you can change brake pads you can fix the body work and what ever suspension componets that got fed up.

Looks like the car's been repainted already, given the cracked clearcoat, and why in the hell would a parent give a high school kid a new IS?

I don't know man. Your suspension might have pushed on everything else... I wouldn't be surprised if it's IS totaled. That sucks 'core man! I'de milk at least enough money from that guy to buy a newer, better condition Miata with enough left over to buy some "goodies."

Id say theres a good chance itll be totaled. How fast were you goin, and how fast was the lexus goin? Where the car positions in the pictures from the accident or did either of you move? The hood askew fender and door damage and some likely frame damage.

they'll look at the cost of the miata for the lowest blue book they can get, more than likely its going to be a total loss.

You WANT it totaled.Unless the hood was like that before the body took a helluva shot to bend it like that.Total your mods and make sure the insurance covers everything up to and including the brand new brakes.You could prolly buy it back cheap and fix it but then you want to sell it-It'll never be the same again.Just my $.02(used to own a body shop).

Unless you pay extra for mods in your insurance I highly doubt they will cover it. Take all the mods off and be ready to junk it.
