bumped my civic

i am very cheesed off at my self ive bumped the front of my civic into anover car to day. luckily there was next to no damage to the car i hit. except from a very small scratch. but my civic came off worse even thoe i hit at about 5-mph.
it bent the lower part of the bonnet and pushed the radiator back a bit. cracked the bumper damaged the light cluster. Radiator brackets where damaged.
but luckily my two side wings arnt damaged i/e front side metal body work.

ive got her booked in this wensday to get her assessed to see howe big my mistake is going to coast. but i am pretty shore that i am probably going to have to clam on my insurance.

i am still shocked about it. it is my first crash/bump with 4 years driving.
ill keep you up dated on howe it goes

Damn you got any pictures? Yeah friend of a friend has an FN2 and he went into a Renault at crawling speed on ice. Apparently his headlamp, bumper, arch liner and splitter all caved in. Was talking a four figure sum to get the whole lot repaired. The Renault suffered no damage.............

ill post a pic latter to day. the chap at the garage ive booked it into said it could be around 1000 to 2500. and he said it happens to the civic due that the front is dicined to crumple evan at low speed. know it is a waiting game to get her fixed. hopefully it wont take a long time to get fixed and the bill is not too big.

Oh man, im sorry to hear. Im not surprised that it just caved in, if the bodywork is anything to go by the paintwork standards... Thankfully the strong winter winds haven't blown a dent into mine.....


... Yet

Its designed to do that to protect pedestrians if you happen to hit one. Without the ability to do this it wont get a high NCAP rating.

Sorry to hear about the bump stevens744
