Hi there. I'm new to the site and am desperate for an answer please. I recently hit an inanimate object at 15mph. my car is a megane 1.5 DCI.
damage:Front bumper hanging off, n/s wing smashed, n/s headlight unit gone, slam panel curled back, bonnet crumpled and seized shut. I am thinking of taking on the repair myself. Is it an easy enough task, or worth scrapping the car.

Re: crashed!!!!

How old is your car? That really would determine how worthwhile it is and the amount that is worth spending on it
