I wish.
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.

Looks like the Terminators face when he gets a bit ripped off...

Certainly would need a new driver seat base!

Says who? It looks like its taken a right wollop could be twisted.
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.

They have had the E63 for weeks,the price has dropped,still no takers,there are problems all round the car,which is putting people off.
