    I was at Cadwell Park at the weekend and saw some blokes tinkering at the front of an SLine B7
    I went over to have a look, and duly gave them some advice on how to dismantle the front end to extract the cause.

    This is what had happened:

    This is the 'bird' that caused it:

    Wow, that made a mess.
    At least it was complete.

    How was everything else at the front end?

    Lucky man.

    I hit a bird in a vectra once.
    Apart from the blood and feathers everywhere. It took out the the front grill,fans, Rad and some bits.
    Lucky it was a company car.
