    R.I.P Mandizzle's Astra Coupe

    Hi people, had a car crash today in the morning...a van pulled out in front of another car and the car braked really hard and i went in the back of him.

    ITS my fault....so they say, because i should of left a lot of braking space.

    here is a picture....




    I have took bits out and so have a look out of the for sale section

    PLEASE POST YOUR VIEWS....think it will get repaired?...its done 80,000 on the clock.

    man that looks pretty nasty if its just external damage you should be able to fix it ? trip to a scrappy for some bits.

    ye even though its not properly your fault the insurance etc will see it as your fault

    hope you get it fixed mate and that everyone was ok

    that is bad news mate, after just getting your running problems sorted out. looking at that i would think the insurance may well write it off as that is heavy front end damage. glad you are ok though

    Ouch looks nasty there. Could be lot damage structurally. Just wait till insurance man comes out and see what they say!
    Main thing is that you walked away from the accident!
