    The result of a dodgy junction, ice, and oh yeh a Renult traffic van!!

    It has had loads of new and upgraded parts in the 12 months, so will be ebaying her as it has twisted the front end, PM if you have any sensible offers.

    Please excuse the tears if i speak to you !!

    if it only slid for 2 foot, would it be safe to say you were going to fast lol, did you hit the van up the **** or did he pull out ? insurance might be a killer for you now !

    Insurance!! Already got 12 points......

    No T Boned the NS sliding door !

    If the was not a van parked on the junction i may have seen the junction sooner, also not knowing the road (which had no giveway signs on) really didn't help

    As Sandra says, at the end of the day you can replace cars even though they're our pride and joy, the main thing is that you are ok.

    Ok looked again,crash bar is bent right over,but does'nt look like the leg's took a smack,best to get a bodyshop to check the legs have to see,if so i recon around a grand to fix.so an a3,might be worth just cutting your loss's,depends how much you value it at.

    Bad luck mate , right before christmas as well :(

    I don't think you'll get much selling as a complete car on ebay. Maybe you would be better off selling all your modded parts and things like wheels, then selling the rest of the car to one of those places that's like a breakers but they buy the car for the metal.
