Thanks for the post savlageman,
I took the car in the same day to have its estimate done and I was with the guy when he checked it all over. The rear arches dont look to have been touched thankfully. I dont think it will need a new front bumper as I was only pushed into the car in fronts towbar at about 5-10 mph, and all thats happened is the front number plate is cracked ! Fingers crossed anyway.
He did say that its not going to be a write off when the girl who gave me the courtesy car asked him. Here's hoping.
When I say I was hit at 35mph, that was just my estimate, I cant be sure, it may well have been slower. I wasnt really watching my speed at the time (like anyone does unless theres a speed camera about), but I know I wasnt speeding.
