    Default Vectra vs Pheasant damage!

    Hi, Just after some advice and possibly repair costs.
    I collided with a pheasant crossing the M4 and here's the damage. Ps: Please ignore the disgraceful state of the car, that's what I get for living in Wiltshire!

    Only a small split in the front bumper but lower front grill has been pushed on through to this radiator (looks like the ambient temp sensor has caused the damage on the rad.

    However, the good news is the air con still works and the radiator in the pics is getting warm when a/c is on.

    Do you think it needs repairing or do I leave well alone?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Speaking of hitting things, I nearly ran into not 1 but 2 deers tonight!

    Saw one come out the side of the road and then slowed down, then another one jumped out and then they ran accross to the other side. If I didn't start to slow down I would have hit the second one jumping out.

    Thankfully they weren't the suicidal type and ran accross the road because it was a 60 MPH road (long straight) and I wouldn't have had any chance of stopping!

    I was going past them thinking thank god there weren't a third one!
