    Crashed my car (With photos)

    Slipped on the wet and crashed my car tonight into a tree

    Basically the left front panel and headlight are smashed up, nothing to the bonet and a few scratches on the bumper.

    Before i hit the tree i went over a few bushes and basically the left wheel has been pushed back and is rubbing against the arch. The steering wheel still turns both wheels, and the right one is fine, but the left one has been pushed quite far back, as its dark i cant see

    Whats the worst damage it could be?

    Well left wing and headlight and possibly a new bumper from what you have said. But get some pictures up in the morning when its light and people will be able to tell you more.

    You could have bent/damaged a few things, only way to tell is have a look in the light and put some pictures up.

    new wishbone (as its done what its meant to do and absorb the impact) £25 from local motor factors

    suspension leg "may" have been damaged so check all the suspension components and the anti roll bar drop link

    cant see what else at this point in time but it could be a fairly quick cheap fix
