Double turns in Utah are the worst. North Temple and State street is terrible and most of the time people don't realize there are two turn lanes. Sorry about your car, at least you are physically OK, although I would be pretty upset. Good luck sorting out the details with insurance, hopefully they will take care of it quickly.

Even on the single left-turn lanes, people here tend to swing wide so they end-up in the far-right lane. If you do it right and stay in the left lane, then signal and try to change lanes to the right side the proper way, you find the guy behind you in the turn is already there, and swearing at you for assuming he'd follow the law as well.

Thanks for the concern fellas. I am just a bit upset about it all but it is what it is. Yeah, I hope the ins. co. does their job in a timely manner.

oh bose! i'm so sorry to hear it! I'm glad your ok! Yeah Utah female drivers are the WORST!!! That same exact thing happened to me and a friend like a week ago, except she pulled a U-TURN from the right left turn lane, right in front of us! Luckily we were still mostly stopped. So we followed her to chew her out but she wouldn't roll down the window and her passenger made up for his drivers stupidity by making out with her. Idiots! Well it should all be covered and over soon, and you'll get some smooth new front end paint out of the deal

RX8snowboard, where are you getting a pass at? or where do you usually go snowboarding? we should totally go this season...in someone elses car There are whole threads about that second gear grinding, I think there's a guy who finally got his fixed, should be warranty work-you just gotta know the right key words to say. Search the site for it.

I am in town this Sunday afternoon and down to ride, I'll be up in Ogden again. I saw a gray one in the Harrison Grounds for Coffee parking lot...Husain? I forgot what color yours is...

That salt is nasty but if the car was sealed and painted well in the first place, it should take a while for that crap to eat through it, especially if you take good care of it, but it will eventually. I talked to a few other people at SSXI who were also already getting rust inside the hood and trunk, but I just think its WAY too soon for that especially cuz they live in CA. I think Mazda just did a crappy job getting a complete and uniform paint job on these cars and left some inconspicuous exposed spots to invite the corrosion! I am in the process of seeing what they can do for mine, which is obviously rusted from the inside out.

Oh yeah, JT I will more than likely need a replacement just for the passenger side though, but it just depends I will let you know if the body shop can salvage the one on there or not.

No sweat on a new eyelid if you need it. Just say the word.

Yes, JT makes fine eyelids, I put up some pics too a couple pages back.

Yes, I spoke to the body shop they said they are doing an alignment today, checking for any suspension damage, but he says there is nothing that looks bent. Then he will be painting tomorrow morning and I may have my baby back by Wednesday evening. I'm pretty excited.

That is a LOT quicker than you were originally thinking it would be...SO glad that it turned out to be nothing serious!

04, PM me if interested in eyelids after you check out Bose's fotos. Post #772 in this thread. Page 31 or 32, IIRC....

^Next week's weather forecast is so-far encouraging, with daytime highs near 70- keep your fingers crossed. Of course, any weather prediction more than 72 hours ahead is a crapshoot, but we can hope.

Bose, did the body shop save the eyelid, or should I shoot up another one?

Oh yeah they said the eye lid was salvageable, I think they even repainted it. I didn't get to look up close just drove by. But my clear corner is a goner so I have one clear and one yellow for now. That will have to be fixed.

Black RX-8 seen in the Walmart parking lot at Jordan Landing, Friday around 2 PM. I was going to leave a note on the windshield when I got out of the store, but the car was gone.

Looks like it had stock rims and might not have had a sunroof, so I know it wasn't Darius.

Anyone?

Now I feel like an idiot. It never occured to me that En is a woman!

Forgive me if I've put my foot in my mouth, En. I guess if we could actually get a meet going more than once a year, these things woudn't happen. We should have one quickly, before my baby gets garaged for winter.

And if Phil is a troublemaker, then I'm doubly proud of him!
