    This is why it's not worth living in the Northeast.

    Not so sure I'd trust these anymore after seeing this. Was a great looking bar. Interested in knowing, the rest of the story.

    I don't think there really is any more to the story. I'm fairly certain that one of my trips through NYC's amazing interstate system did this to my bar.
    I'm SHOCKED that two or more of my BBS wheels aren't destroyed.

    Holy smokes. That is painful to look at.

    And I thought the roads around here sucked.

    Yep. Not the toughest bar. Especially considering the outlandish price.

    Oh man. I had heard people had broken them in the past by flexing them with their arms. Just thought they were really buff. :-( Sorry for your loss.

    It did its job; my strut towers are saved... for now.
    The shitty part is, I won't be able to buy one 'till next year, so that's going to be a massive risk zone.
