    Id say so so really. Bumper bent the slam panel into the radiatior...which has flexed but not broke. And the bonnet creased beside the light. And one of the light clips broke . So really only need bumper, slam panel and bonnet. Possibly just fibreglass the bumper and light clip though.

    And yeah, the roads up here are awful just now. Theyre all closing.

    The reason i crashed was because they put up a set of temporary traffic lights round a blind bend unmarked! Came round right into traffic sitting at red and just couldnt stop.

    well, you see :P....

    IF the snow wasnt there, then the temporary traffic lights wouldnt have been in place.

    IF the snow wasnt there i would have been able to break long before hitting the battle tank of a golf .

    Thats how

    I'm gonna be the first one to say it, but
    IF you were traveling at a reasonable speed, and according to the conditions, then you'd of been able to stop in enough time upon seeing the stationary traffic.
