Hey all,

I've been lurking for years but haven't posted until now. Today might be the last day that I will have driven my car of 7.5 years, my Vivid Blue Pearl '05 RSX Type-S. On my way to work, I was involved in a front end collision after clipping the rear quarter panel of a car that turned left in front of me while I was driving through an intersection. The other driver was at fault, so whatever happens will be on her parents' insurance. I was going somewhere between 30-35 mph, but slammed on my breaks at the last second and tried to avoid her to no avail. Airbags didn't deploy at all, and most of the damage looks cosmetic as the amount of core support that was visible didn't look bent, and I totally missed taking out the radiator. Luckily, none of us were hurt, but both of our cars were pretty smashed. It has 143k miles, the tow truck driver thinks the insurance company might just total it due to the age and mileage. Going to call it in tomorrow and wait and see what they say.

I haven't been on the site in a while and just saw this topic. Unfortunately, I can relate. I bought my '02 Type-S new and had driven it 134K miles. Over the years I had it painted and had new leather installed. The only mods were a Comptech Ice Box, insulated IM gasket, Hondata reflash, Hardrace motor mounts, and A-Spec suspension. End of May, 2017, I left the house to drive to work and the car was gone. Two days later it was found two miles away on the side of the road, stripped of drive train, seats, and tires/wheels. This was a rust-free, never wrecked Florida car, so when the insurance company totaled it, I bought it back for $400. I have acquired seats and wheels, but can't work on replacing the drive train while it is in storage. I need to free up a spot in my garage or sell it. Meanwhile, I just bought a new 2020 Civic Type R, so my desire to fix up the RSX is waning.
