    Default Car Broken!

    I just hit a badger at 60mph.

    The radiator is a goner and i think the fan is broke to. no bumber damage though.

    how much am i looking (minimum) for a repair and is it worth claiming the insurance instead?

    Russ

    PS why is my account gone all weird!

    for the fraction of a second that i saw it, it was huge, but didnt break the bumber, from what i can see, its as if the bumber flexed but im afraid there may be more damage then i can see, steering feels lumpy, suspension feels rough, fan sounds terrible.

    im more concerned about what other damage there may be, the radiator pipes and mounts are all twisted, god knows what else is broke!

    Posting to make sure................

    EDIT: Yep i'm all cool

    im amazed there is that much damage to the radiator area, but no damage on the bumber, and more importantly, no bits of badger!
