    Not a good night :(

    First real accident

    Wasnt my fault at least,

    my mate in his saxo vtr decided he wanted to see what was in my boot at 40mph

    Im gutted to say the least, although visually it doesnt appear to bad, the bumper is cracked and hanging off, and the irmscher skirt on the back is snapped.
    When looking underneath, the big metal plate behind the bumper looks bent so dont think its good

    Is there anything i need to look for to see if its damaged?

    And il post a pic in a min of at the scene, but post some better ones tomoro.

    sounds nasty, get some piccies up, it might be salvagable, it might not be that bad or at least repairable

    usual rear end shunts crease the inside of boot, if its just the bumper and the reinforcer bar then not too bad but get it checked out as if its been hit at an angle it could have affected the chassis

    Right, just put it up on a set of ramps, and its obviosuly a new bumper, but the metal plate behind the bumper is bent, whats this?

    Also can anyone roughly tell me how much its gonna cost to fix?

    Also, is it worth ringing my insurance company, even though my mate said he will pay for it?

    Thanks, john,

    This is the only pic i have at the moment.
