Minor damage... Bumper has slight bulge...but do not think anything can be done for it so looks like new bumper. No plate slight damage.
Exhaust now pointing slightly downwards..

Could not believe it stopped behind another motor for it to turn right. Was there 20-30 seconds when the old biddy went straight into the rear end. On a half mile straight... Luckily the car in front had just pull away or I might have had front end damage as well...

and they say young drivers are the biggest risk

Phoned Tesco's this morning they said I could use there workshops or go to a place of my choosing, so popped down to Tiley's and they phoned there bodyshop who came straight round and have taken over the claim. Said the car may be of the road for a few days maybe a week...

They infor me they have taken over the claim and are now getting in touch with the other parties insurance. They asked me what car I would like when my motor is in for repair..I said its surely only a bumper and should be sorted in the day. He said it will take a day to remove bumper check all the surounding area and put the car on jig to check its still straight... So said it may be in for a week if other problems are found so best I pick a car as its all free for me.
He asked how would a lotus elise be for a few days I declined that as to small dragon would never get shopping in that.. So plumbed for a BMW. If you have performance car in for repair you are entitled to a equivilant car or a car of your choice...
