Alright heres the deal, I hit the critter doin 70+. My coolant flooded out of my car with in 10 seconds. The radiator is loose, and the front valance is dragging. Already made the insurance claim and had them tow it to the stealership. Should I take a check or have them fix it ??? any other suggestions i am open too. My suspension started clicking when also and my exhaust was pingin. That critter got it good. Is there anyway to go aftermarket on that stuff? this is the first claim i have made against this car

Take the check,
get new valance, paint it, get new radiator, self-install it and make money out of this!
Insurance is overrated anyway so abuse the system while you can!

You need to do the right thing. Take the insurance money and start a rescue shelter for injured racoons. There is a pretty hardcore aftermarket racoon scene out there, so put the car on hold for now.

Re: Just ran over a raccoon at 80mph!!! (Dubstarr)

that sucks man. i once hit a porcupine doing 75mph at 2 am . When i hit that sucke i thought i tagged a cinder block. When i got it taken to the insurance company ti get it looked at . they thought i was lying and was drinking and swerved off the road. 2 days later the insurance company phoned and said they were sorry about the accusations cuz they found a couple of porcupine quills inside the gas tank. that truck even had off road skid plates that got wrapped around the driveshft. Man that thing hit so hard the truck jumped off the ground and i got air from that damn porcupine it was so big

There are plenty of people in Cali that need a good 75mph hit.
