That sucks man, sorry to hear that. I hate driving on ice too. But front fenders are easy to replace. Headlights are a little more difficult to get lined up right, depending on the damage. How about pictures so we can see how bad the damage is, and how much work it will be to fix?

Ah, it is the most wonderful time of the year....not really. That sucks, I hate ice. Some questions, was the altima parked? Did you just drive off? If no, what did he/she say? I request more details.

And the head light is pretty much toast, its all bent and tweaked, the bezel that goes around the glass it broke, um i believes the headlight mount it self got bent.

His car was parked by his appartment in the store parking lot, and he ran out when he heard it. We swapped info and i left. I thought about driving off but he ran outside to fast, and he pretty much said shit happens.

last night i was driving down a country road and forgot there was ice there and it was snowing a little and was daydreaming a bit and needless to say i spun (back and forth a few times) and finally hit the ditch, the lude is ok, just needed to scrape the snow out of the rad and a bunch flew under the hood somehow, but seems fine, luckily was close to a friends house and they came and pulled me out

the slope was slight bit i went about 20' into it so i was about 4' or more lower than the road, only about a foot or so of snow tho, i was quite lucky, hit a space between trees and stuff, this is my only mode of transportation and if i wreck it, i'm screwed for another car, so i'll be thanking the mad upstairs for the outcome

Damn dude, those pics are huge. Glad I have broadband, lol.

The damage doesn't look too bad. Basically a new fender and headlight assembly. It could have been much worse.

yeah its totally diff. when u are actually standing next to it and looking at it. And the bumper mounts are all tweaked and shit which sucks, also idk what it could be but the clank in the motor bay when i hit my breaks, kinda weird. and also the head lights mounts and housing are all tweaked and bent so idk. i hope it dosnt cost to much cause i dont want to have to claim it totalled.

Your carrying full coverage on this? If you claim it they probably won't total it with the damage that your pictures show. It isn't difficult to replace bumper mounts if they are tweaked. The area that the headlight mounts to is not terribly difficult to straighten if it is bent.
