An auto M30 car would probably be ok.

I used to drive my car in semi automatic mode when it had an auto trans

I've never lost an iS lip. The iS Lip on my current E30 (re-shell) survived this shit right below:

It may have cracked but it didn't break. Same iS lip on my car right now.

1983 Peugeot 505 STI
1992 Volvo 240 Wagon

Ouch - that's a nasty accident. Nevermind the iS lip, good to hear that you're ok after a shunt like that!

Ouch that was a nasty hit. Glad you made it out alive. That picture is like an automotive history for me. Just replace the Elantra with an Accent. I owned two CB7(4th gen) Accord coupes. The Accent was totaled (RIP) last year.

That was a fierce collision. Never had a cracked dash 2-0 so far. Just had a reverse light go out. So can check that off as "replaced." My drivers side door lock is going so I will get the joy of replacing that soon.
