    Hey guys a few hours ago i ran in to the back of a motor cycle (hes fine bar a bit of back pain) at about 10> mph. basically smashed my windscreen (had to kick it out one of my lifes abitions) bumper-fucked bonnet-fucked rad-fucked but i did manage to drive it back everything else is as it was and fairly tidy. its only and lsi(d15b2) but its only done a genuine 44k. do i build it back up or do i take my coilys (kw) rotas and feels induction off and break the rest of the car and start on something new? now i loved this car like it was a friend but its going to cost me a bit to repair (and im fairly skint lol) so what do you guys think i should do??

    Its up to you what you decide to do, its your car and your money.. I must say tho, that lookslike alot more than 10mph :O

    why did your screen break? he ended up on it? :|

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was 10mph, EGs fold like paper in any form of crash. Either way it looks like it'd need a new slam panel as well.

    Your going to need a better picture man

    But you definitely build it back up

    already thoughts of other cars are popping into my head such as an ef Civic i don't think i can afford to build it back up

    Unless you've already ploughed loads of time and money into this shell, I'd say it's time to start again TBH mate! EF Sounds good :Wink:

    I've got kw coilys green rotas and my feels induction, havnt done anything else

    im going to need something cheap as i can see my insurance going up massivly

    it will cost far more than you think to have it repaired. Me and some mates rebuilt mine after a similar low speed crash, but i would really have been better off to buy another

    due to the last comment, breaking it tommorow, looking out for something cheap from now on thanks alot guys!

    As already said you won't get bugger all back by breaking it, i broke my car this year and got nothing back compared to what i paid for it be it there wasn't much to salvage but its a shame. Good luck with it all.
