    Looking at the angle your bumper top now sits at , i suspect its pushed the rear lower panel in, has it crumpled the boot floor ?

    When someone kindly rear-ended my car (and promptly drove off) the boot floor was damaged but a boy-racer bodyshop local to where I used to work fixed it for about £100. Knocked all the panels straight but being box-section they will never look "original" again.

    Damn! He can't have been hanging around, must have easily been over 10MPH.

    It's not serious in terms of structural integrity, but it won't be cheap to fix at a bodyshop.

    Did he get the Pole's name? :)

    Sorry to see that. It looks like it is just a bit too much damage to be a cheap quick fix - obviously it is not a "dangerous" level of damage but it does look like it has given it a bit of a good "shove".
