"I was just talking to the dealership that sold this car a few days ago (Hendrick Alfa Romeo in Cary, NC). He told me about this incident. The guy crashed it on his way home from the dealership with his son in the car. Everyone was ok, he even went back and put a deposit on another one."
Engine and trans maybe still salvageable. Its a gamble to take.
Good grief! So did they play wanna be racer and turn off all the nannies on the first trip home? Dumb. Glad they are ok and kudos for going right back for another one. Insurance on the other hand will be more painful than the first time.
