Ouch.  Any damage?  Did you actually brake at all ??!

I hope I'm wrong but that sounded like contact (?)

That’s bad luck but I would have braked as soon as I saw the first one appear.

That impact definitely sounded significant, how much damage has it done ?

The good news your ok, could have been worse head on in a Lotus.

He’s either OK, or he has a dashcam that automatically posts footage on MLOC after contact with animals 😉

Bambi's fine but the Europa fell apart seconds after the camera stopped and Stephen is still walking home as we speak.. In the rain...:badmood:...maybe?

i am braking from 75 to 40 mph all during that clip, @ndy. It's only like 4 secs but felt more like 10 at the time. the headlight sheared off it's silly plastic posts, this happens anyways on the drivers side headlight on Europas, so i applied the same fix (big rubber washers and self tappers),but there is permanent damage to the front clam, a crack in the glass fibre at the very apex of the wheel arch. i've bonded an aluminium plate inside the wheel arch to stop the crack propagating.

I turned around straight away, but no sign of the errant creature....

lucky i didnt swerve, there is that other car coming.

could have been a lot worse!

want to see before n after pics?
