    looks ok but.....

    Advice needed please.........

    going to work this morning, was hit from behind as slowed/ stopped in a que of traffic at a roundabout
    it was a slow speed bump, as i say was stopped and thought the guy behind was....
    it will have been less than 10mph, i was off the break so the car went forward
    more of a rolling incident, wouldnt have thought he was on the accellerator just came off
    the break to early
    pulled over and had a look at the 'damage' exchanged details etc
    everything looked ok this morning, got it home tonight and there is just a scratch running
    horizontally along the lower side of the bumper... will get a pic up when get the camera back....
    all the 'lines/gap' appear to be the same as before the bump
    there just seems to be a bit more 'flex' in the bumper and when tap it doesnt sound as solid
    as it use to....... or is it...... think there is....... not a thing do regularly so cant be sure
    thinking will just let it go and not get involved with insurances, other car had no damage either
    and the other guy was hapy to do this this morning

    what do you guys reckon.......
    let the guy know im happy to leave it or
    get it checked out

    cheers
    hope this makes sense... bit tired long day at work... it makes sense in my head

    p.s. i do know it could have been a LOT worse as jedi knights tale

    there is an honeycomb aluminum block behind the bumper IIRC, this could be damaged. I'd have it checked.

    Whatever happens it's not your fault, so you have nothing to loose - get it checked.

    as above, if its damaged it needs fixing, he should either fix it out of his pocket or get insurance to sort it
