    Thumbs Down Smashed the Astra - Pix inside

    Last wednesday, my car slid on the ice and i managed to smash sideways into the front of a van

    I'm gutted because its only 3 weeks since the bodykit was put on not even had a chance to get the other bits from the kit on

    here are pics of the damage:

    yep the metals a little bent, i was doing around 20 on roads that had been gritted then salted, then all of a sudden, no grit or salt! my fault i suppose, i'm not pointing fingers.

    the van had a smashed headlight, a cracked bumper and a little kink in the wing

    if you dont want the insurance company to write your car off, let them know there was no damage to your car, they wont come and inspect it then
