yeah its really bad

yeah those are my crap rims I had since the winter , I was planning on changing back to my lexus Is300 rims when the weather gets nice over here, as for insurance, yeah he was at total fault over here his insurance company is willing to take my car for a total loss valued at 2300, also get to keep the car as well, what do u guys think ? is that a good offer? and I already purchased the wing/tailight, but as for a rear bumper idk if the dudes at my car repair shop can bring that back to life -Realness

Can someone explain me how the insurance system works in USA?, I keep seeing post about people in supras hit by someone and have all kinds of trouble.

In Spain you have an accident and both sides have clear what happend you exchange license plate numbers telephone numbers, Insurance companies, insurance policy number and you take your car to the shop to get it fix with no charge on the car that received the damage.

If you have a 3º cover, its called like that you are insured for any damage you make, but you pay your own, if you are not the fault of the accident your car gets repaired at no cost.

Full insurance means that whoever had the fault of the accident you car gets fixed

Very similar

Yeah USA has the same type of policy with insurance but a little different if the repair cost is more than the value of the car, they just buy the car off of you, usually they take the car from you and u can buy it back for a couple of hundred , and in some cases u get to keep the car as well as the value of the car, but this takes place in all no-fault accidents such as mine, if you get rear ended its always the other guys fault..

But in the US, even though it is the law that you must have insurance, chances of being hit by someone that does not have insurance is great.

Just remember that if you take that money from the insurance company, the car will be seen as a totaled car and depending on your state, might even have a salvaged title.
