    This is not good, what happened and what's the damage?
    I know how you feel my mini nearly got written off a while back, took me 2 months of arguing with the insurance company before they decided to give me a cash in lieu settlement

    silly mmin did her usual fling forward tick, although this time there was a citreon people carrier there,....
    i've bent the wing, its all twisted, my lovely new angel eye smashed, my lovely new mk 1 grill ruined and my front panel has given up now that is teh first time its been battered (i have been reversed into twice!) not sure what damage its done otehrwise, there are deffinatly handleing isues, maybe tie bars?maybe subframe...here is to hoping it ISNT the chassis though!
    Have spoken to a few mini people and they rekon she wont be written off! so yay! this is good news, reporting it tomorow! so here is hoping.

    I wouldn't have thought the sub-frame would be damaged, tie bar is more than likely, what about the inner wing? Ever thought of getting a fibreglass flip-front as a cheaper repair? either the mini will be off the road for a little while Sad let's hope the insurance company won't declair it as a write off :s

    I agree with that... no mini should ever be scrapped, there are enough spares and repair parts out there, unfortunately the budget is the biggest issue. But it can always be passed on to sumone else as a project. ATM I'm considering building a mini speedster when my Bitzy is done.
