    Argh! With a car like that you'd think they'd at least TRY and keep their wits about them. Fools.

    We do not know the circumstances but from the picture above it just looks like superficial damage (I cannot access the link).

    Bonnet looks in line so might just need a new front bumper and crash barriers etc..

    That front spoiler doesn't look like carbon fiber. It would have shattered. I guess it is CFRP with lots of plastic and very little CF

    Doesn't look like there's any chassis damage at least. A few days in a body shop and it'll be right as rain.

    I hope. It'd be a massive shame to bin it already.

    trust u paddy....;) nice engine but dunno if its worth an rs badge imo.....the ttrs i drove didnt feel hardly any different to my stg 1 s3 apart from driving position. a lot more ££££ tho:faint:

    I WILL put the rs3 front end on my car one day tho...may be a year or so, prob a combination of s3 8p3 parts and rs3 parts...

    Tell ya what denty :) the biggest criticism people on here level at the old 3.2 was all that weight up the front..Well the 5 pot RS lump weights even more but people like to forget that......lol course its not worth £45k or a RS badge its just a mish mash from the parts bin. :yes:
