How not to remove a spoiler!

Until yesterday my Celica looked like this:

Linked Image

This morning a truck didn't quite make it past my parking car while he was driving backwards:

Linked Image

cry

Linked Image

This is where the spoiler used to be. Nice dent!

Linked Image

Taillight got killed too!

Linked Image

And the bumper is scratched and cracked. Well done, mr. truck driver aka idiot! Estimated damage is about 4500.00 Euro (about $5400.00), if the bumper has to be replaced. Luckily his insurance has to cover it all grin!

Look at the bright side, It could have been a lot worse but it still sucks it happened.

That used to be the Carcept wing. I think I'll stay wingless from now on, or I'll get the Kaminari Wing when I have enough money.

$5400?!

That... at MOST... is $750-1000 damage. That's if they have to replace the rear bumper cover.

I didn't estimate the amount myself, that was done by someone whos' job it is to estimate how high the damage is (there is probably a real word for that job, but I'm not american, so i don't know). I will get a new rear hatch, a new spoiler, new tails and maybe a new bumper, plus a paint job for spoiler, bumper and the part next to the bumper, which is slightly scratched. The prices for the parts are WAY higher in Germany than they are in the States. I will know the exact amount sometime next week, when it's clear if the bumper has to be replaced or not. I know it doesn't look like that much damage, but that guy says its accurate and I don't mind getting some extra cash from the insurance wink.

^^^ If insurance is paying for whatever that guy quotes... I'd take the cash then find someone with sane prices to fix it. Bling. rofl

Just curious... what is the cost of a new GTS over there?

It's sad it happened to his car... but I'm not a fan of any wing that slopes upward that much. Looks a touch rice

The suggested retail price from the german toyota page (www.toyota.de) is (with sunroof) 29920.00 Euro eek, that's over $36000.00 eek 2sq! But only an idiot would buy it for that price. You can get a GTS new for around 24000.00 Euro if it's imported from Denmark, Belgium or something like that.

If you import a car in from a neighboring country do you have to pay the 'mehrwertsteuer' to the German government and the country where you bought it?

I decided to bring this post back from the dead, instead of making a new thread. I got the money from the insurance, less than I thought, but still more than enough to repair the car. After taking pictures of my ride without the spoiler (pics can be found here), I decided to keep it wingless. The wiper bothered me tho, it just didn't fit with the cleaner look, so bye bye wiper.

I'll get the hatch and the bumper painted tomorrow, new pics to come. I really need some new tails now!

How much is a new GTS in America then?

21,500 pounds here.

Kindly convert it from dollars into pounds because I haven't got a clue.

And if that cost 6 grand to fix, what is this gonna cost?
