A few months ago I got slammed from behind at a stop light on a rainy day. The first thought in my head was the hassle it would be to get a new carbon fiber spoiler and performance exhaust. Disturbed's "Hell" was playing on the radio.
My back was sore the rest of the day. Amazingly, NOT A SCRATCH or dent could be found on my bumper or even the spoiler or performance exhaust (which protrudes out further than stock). Her front bumper, meanwhile, was seriously dented.
I got her info. She blamed the wet roads and didn't apologize but I was too relieved to give her a lecture about driving like a doomass. I had my car checked out at the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong with it or tell it had even been involved in a minor collision.
Point of the story: If you have to get into an accident, it's best to take it from behind.
