unfortunately I found the same thing out, but my 4k was still stong enough 
that everyone who saw what was left of it said I was lucky to be alive. And 
if I remember correctly, my hood did not fold, only crumbled where it came 
into contact with the tree, my roof _DID_ fold for some reason, as my 
steering wheel came foreward to meet me. But hey, I'd rather be driving an 
Audi than a Mitsu. And on that insurance thread, so you all know I'm 18, I 
was not drunk, but it was caused by ice and snow, and most likely a bit of 
inexperience dealing with extreme conditions.
