Coming into work last night, I left a 30 zone and was accelerating when a badger shot out into the road. Couldn't swerve due to oncoming traffic, couldn't brake in time... BANG! Mk5 Golf Gti... Destroyed the lower grill. One spotlight mesh was hanging off, you can see the bumper is physically lower as it's tilting forwards slightly and upon closer inspection, it actually snapped the bumper near the bottom. Heard him go under the car, it's lowered, with a loud bump as he went under the back end/rear wheels so I've absolutely no idea what damage I'm looking at. I'm hoping when I go out I'm not seeing a large puddle of anything under the car Looks like it's going to set me back a couple of hundred for OEM parts, although I am half tempted to build some crazy mad max style front out of steel just in case there is a next time. Just dropped my monthly disposable on 2 new wheel bearings and to book in for a DSG service so it's going to have to wait until next month.
