#1 Glad you're ok! Thank GOD!!! I understand totaling a car is no fun, especially when it's not your fault!!! Your car was beautiful and is totaled. I always say "Out of something bad, comes something good!" Hope all works out for you. Try and take EVERYTHING off you can sell. Good luck.

Be glad you don't look like this:

It changes your life permanently.

I'd say your car did exactly what it should - saved you from serious injury. Definitely worth considering another one.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

Sorry for the loss of your vehicle. It no doubt sucks to put all that effort into it only to have some knucklehead total it. As others have already mentioned, at least you're safe. That's the most important thing.

+1. Get another if you can.

Thank God you were in an ISF! Were it another car, you may not be here to share this with us.

Glad you made it out ok. I must say for a 60mph crash the passenger compartment seemed to hold up extremely well! I don't think too many cars would have held up the same. Sorry for your loss and hopefully you get another Lexus or F.

Glad to see you are ok. My last car was also totaled by a lady who ran the red light and t-boned me. I was very lucky to get out without major injuries. She is a exec in a big company though.

You can always get another car but you can get another you. Glad to see you were able to walk about from something that bad.

Hey JM I'm glad your doing ok. You can never replace a human life. Hopefully you might be able to put yourself in a new F.

Sorry about your loss, I just got my 2008 ISF on December and hope to enjoy it for a long time. I am looking for spare OEM rims, are you able to keep any of them?
