Ok, So monday I was involved in a Hit and run Car accident. My truck rolled 3 or 4 times. During the course of the rolling my xbox 360 Premium was thrown out of the vehicle. I didnt get knocked out and Im alive. When I got out of the vehicle I saw my beloved 360 and harddrive not to mention some of my games strewn along the road with other items of mine. I walked over and picked up the 360. Face plate not to be found. 360 had a tire mark on it. It had been ran over. Along with one of my wireless controllers and my remote and power brick. The power brick was ran over but shows no signs of damage. The games were ran over. Saints row and prey might be salvagable. The 360 Got ran over it was squished. one of the metal supports on the side was bent. And when I picked it up the case fell off. I straigtened the metal side and put the case back together and turned it on. It fired up and went to the dash I poped in a game and it read. Played for a little bit then watched a dvd. looks good to me.

This is really a testament to the 360. Granted it wont hold faceplates any more and its got a tire mark on it. It also has a chip missing from the chrome bezel. but it works...No I had the extended waranty from Microsoft but at this point in time I will probably buy an aftermarket case or an oem one if I can find it.

On a Side note I walked away with a bruised elbow

Anyway Below are the pictures. Check it out. Warning these pictures are big.

Holy shit. It's impressive you survived yet alone the 360. Did the cops have any luck finding the suspect?

So let me get this right. Your Xbox 360 was able to survive BOTH the Fall update AND a vehicle rollover? I'd say you have a keeper there! tongue.gif

I highly doubt it got ran over...There would be alot more damage to the 360.
The marks look more like skid marks from the asphalt.

On the flipside, I'm glad you got out fine and I hope they find that bastard smile.gif
