Took it to get an estimate from the repair shop. According to them the repair is 50% of the car's value so they suspect the guy's insurance company will repair the car. Hoping so.

Yea, I always look in my rear view mirror when I see a 2gen GS go by and 90% of the time it's "just" a 300. If I do see a GS400/430 it's rarely a nice looking one; well, not as nice as mine :)

I love my GS4 with no regrets. But if I were to do it all over again, I'd go with the GS300 because the GS4 takes much more money/effort to go from 300hp to 400hp. The GS3 can go from 225hp to...
