A very good post.

Modern bumpers can hide a lot of damage that happens in even a relatively slow speed collision.If ever you are involved in such an accident,or if you ever go and have a look at a car that your interested in buying,always have a look under the boot carpet and at the front panel.

Modern cars are designed to bend and twist in an impact to absorb the forces,and this goes a long way to explaining why accident repairs are so expensive.A scuffed bumper can hide damage that could write the car off!.

Nice work Saltire.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
