Now i dont drive a GTI, but ive been intereste in gettin one for some time now, but right now i am lucy to be alive. Well i was hoping to be able to go to the Killswitch Engage show on friay night but neer made it, instead i wound up at Franklin Square. On my way to Henry's house to met up for the show i lost control of my car on Holly Neck road and slammed into a boulder on the front drivers side door. Thi sent me, Ricky, and Totta to Frankling Square, while my little brother and Charlie went to John Hopkins/Bayiew. Immediatly after inpact i was dazed and do not remember how i got out of my car, all i know i that i got out and banged on a womans house for help and had her call 911, and to that woman i owe big THANK YOU. Paramedics showed up and transorted the yoounger of the passangers first both complaining of back and neck pains. The older of them (Ricky, Trotta, and myself) had pains in the ribs. While laying in the hospital praying that everyone an everything was going to be alright, i look over and the one person who i really needed to see wa there, and to her i just wanna let you know that i love you Robin. It meant alot to me that you were there for me. o in all everyone is alright, all being released from said hospitals with no serious or life threatening injuries, it is honetly a miracle i am alive right now, pictures of my car (which i tottaled) are to follow up.

The Avalon was rate at about 200hp, and it was no problem for me to drive, it was the fact that my tire presure was low and wet roads, ive drivin my dad Dodge Ram 1500 and my moms 2003 BMW 325xi all the time

if you were in a GTI you would have had traction control and ESP and brake assits and that steering assist and may not have wrecked at all GTI rules >:D >:D >:D but seriously glad you are alright

I hear a sequel to crash coming up... :D Amazing what cars these days can do to keep you relatively OK, and glad to hear that worked for you.

I'm convinced that, at least for the GTI, "In case of an accident your car can be used as a floatation device."

oh no there will be no sequal crash coming up, at least not intentionally *knock on wood*
Sorry! I didn't mean it that way! ;D

There was a movie about people who got into car wrecks on purpose because they enjoyed the experience. I think it was called crash. That's what I was referring to.
