DC5 base

Hi everyone, I've owned my DC-5 since I bought it new back in 2006. I love my car so much, only has 83k. This past weekend I was t-toned by some asshole in a white scion. I'm going to repair my car and hope it will feel the same. I'm worried that it will have frame damage. What are your thoughts?

Have you not gotten an estimate? Or are you just trying to repair it yourself?

You should really take it somewhere for a professional estimate. We can't tell you one way or another whether the frame is damaged just from looking at a picture.

It's hard to tell from the picture but I would say your chances of not having frame damage are good. It looks like its just your door, fender, and side skirt mainly.

BrutalB83 is right though; you need a shop to tell you what exactly is going on.

Good luck to you and sorry about the accident.

in my honest opinion, it probably isn't going to ride the same anymore.

See what a body shop says, if it’s to bad Mabe fix it to the best of your ability and sell it or don’t fix it and keep it as a parts car if u Get another dc5. That’s what I would do anyway. Atleast the quarter panel isant damaged.

You need a good shop who is gonna look at it and tell you A) if there is frame damage, and B) if it can be put on a frame rack and fixed. You can always get paid out from the insurance, tel them you want to keep the car and get paid out. Buy a new rsx and probably part out your old one and sell the swap and like everything else. Or keep for parts. But yeah find a good body shop to look at it .
