Don't know what happened but it appears that my AWD failed (faulty pump) through a sharp curve and my tires all started spinning and i spun. Regained traction right when i was facing a barrier and went into it full bore. Air bag deployed.
Should I try to fix it? How much do you think this will cost to fix? Still waiting to find out if it will be written off.

Sadly, I can add my name to this list.
Last week while on the way to work on the freeway I was rear-ended. Traffic was slowing due to typical jams during that time. The driver behind me apparently wasn't paying attention. They tried to avoid me by swerving quickly to the right, but they did not make it. This is why the damage is on the rear and quarter panel areas on the right. I estimate they hit me at probably 20-25mph but it's really hard to say. They did end up probably 150 ft. in front of me if that tells you anything.
Initial estimate from the body shop was ~$5800. Current estimate is up to $11,800. Currently at the body shop being worked on. I knew it was going to be way higher when I saw the broken suspension bits under the car.
My only concern so far is that they are only replacing the one tire that was damaged, and they only specified a 2 wheel alignment. I though we had to replace all tires when something like this happens? Or at least in pairs. I mentioned this when I first dropped off the car but will ask them about it again tomorrow.
OK, guess I can't post photos/links until I have a postcount...strange, I guess this is my first post.

I can join this club!
Little bit of backstory, I was stopped waiting for a light. The car behind me got hit by the car behind them, which launched their car into my rear and then my car into the car in front of me. I'd guess at 30-35mph. Seat broke backwards, front and back are junked.
They're currently talking about totaling it, the damage is at like 51% of the value of the car, the shop it's at is saying they will most likely find enough damage to total it when they start pulling panels off. They're willing to, the insurance company just needs to give the go-ahead. Hoping they'll do so soon so I can figure out if it's totaled or not

I wish I had took some pictures when I looked at my car, just to get some opinions. I looked at it Aug 31, and it looked like it was very near completion. The body work was done, but the interior needed to be put back together, and on the exterior, the rear wing and right side skirt were off. My right back tire was missing also and the spare donut was in it's place.

The moment I got my car back from the body shop (not nearly as bad a damage as yours), I took it to Mitsu and had them check that everything was done right. But it's easy for me to say because my dealership is only 15 min away.....

So, I just had $27,500 of damage repaired on my '14 GSR. It was hit primarily from the back, so the ACD/AYC pump got absolutely destroyed. (The girl was doing about 45MPH when she hit me) The front got beat up pretty bad too because I got pushed into the car in front of me. They replaced the intercooler and crash bar on the front.
Basically all the panels around the car were replaced, except for the doors.
ANYWAY, after sitting in the collision shop for 13 and a half weeks I got it back.
I plugged in my Cobb AP when I got home and read the trouble codes. (I know I should have done this before I even left)
I looked these up and the ACD issues are with voltage/pressure and the Airbag ones are front sensors and one of the side curtains. I get no dash lights though...
What should I do? Can I bring this to Mitsu to diagnose so I can make another claim to my insurance and have them fix it? Unfortunately the closest Mitsu dealer is over 2.5 hours away.
I really don't know what to do.
On Monday I'll have to call my insurance agent and see what he says too.
I just wanted to get some opinions from what you guys would do. I guess the shop couldn't read the codes or whatever. I'm not even sure how they properly installed the damn ACD/AYC pump without the MUTIII.

I missed this sticky when I had my accident. Below is a link to my original thread about it (with pics). Long story short, car has right-side damage to back quarter panel, back door, and trunk. Right now repairs have reached a little over $16,000. The body shop has had my car for over a month, and two weeks past their original estimate. They had to replace AYC hydraulic unit in the rear, which apparently took awhile to get.
I really miss my car. I went to look at it Monday, and all the body work was done. The interior was gutted and they are waiting on my right seat to be reupholstered with leather, since my leather was dealer installed.
