    My car is no more

    Probably a write off
    look at:

    www.ripper.eclipse.co.uk

    for pics.

    That'll teach me for not replacing my rear tyres that were legal but only had slightly under 2mm of tread.

    Damn, what happend?
    Looks pretty bad, but it does IMHO look pretty fixable, depends on the value of the car (very different to over here).... If they ever repaired it, i'd sell it straight away!
    Hope you're alright!

    Was going round a corner, felt the back end sliding out, tried to correct it but it still turned, hit the pavement diagonally / backwards, continued to spin while going over fence posts and clipped a tree with my front bumper before stopping with fence wire wrapped around my car. Did a 360 or so in total.

    Yeah i'm fine, I thank my car for that, not a single injury. There was no major impact so no airbag went off.

    The main damage is the passenger door sill thats bent in, the rest looks replaceable. The car drove fine, at least to get it on the recovery van.

    new front axle, wheel alignment, new panels and door. Should be fixable unless it's managed to twist the chassis.
