slight front end damage !

Gutting and gutted...
Light coming together between me and a VW, absolutely no damage to their car and they were happy to walk away without any insurance bother. Damage to mine looks superficial - a crack in the bumper at the V grill (the weakest point). Accident was typical low speed at a roundabout, 5mph or less im guessing. Can anyone cast their eye over the pictures and give any opinion?

The bonnet opens and shuts fine, no damage to the rad, just the dirty great big split front centre !

Gutted Gutted Gutted.

Yeah, looks like the bumper did its job.

Time to start scouring ebay for one the same colour!

Just as a follow up, I got all the damaged repaired at Newmans Garage at Long Eaton Nottingham (0115 973 5197). They did a really great job

You can hopefully tell which ones are of the repair !

The fit of the bumper is excellent and the colour match (on a 10 year old car dont forget) is faultless.

Hasslefree, friendly and quick, id recommend them.

Price was £350, which I think is very reasonable, I was quoted £150 for a repair on the original bumper and £170 for a second hand one with a few knocks and bruises.
