    I'd be interested to see their interpretation of heavy damage...

    "Smacked to f***" would have been more accurate.

    All of that is light damage in the trade as there is minimal structural damage to the car.

    I do like the sequence of photos, leaving you waiting for the carnage to be revealed.

    Seems that way - it obliterated the OS/R wheel too whatever prang it had.

    Having had a Vauxhall Astra GTE 16V take a hit to the B pillar back in the mid 90s - that was twisted out of true by some margin.

    Cars are stronger but also designed to absorb impact forces so I doubt that car is straight either!

    That one
    Looks worse than it probably is, I would say that is light to medium damage.
