Fender Bender

Well today i had the tiniest of bumps with another car as at a junction the other car accelerated a bit as if to go out onto the main road but then stopped and me behind going into the back of the car that was doing this.
Was a very small impact barely 3 mph. As i hit the car in front it was 100% my fault i should have paid more attention to the car in front, i was very busy thinking about something.


Anyway i stopped my car to check it out and realised that it was basically undamaged! Only the numberplate a bit which you can see in the pic i attached. The car in front was a BMW X1 with you know all the fancy bumper bits added and it had quite a few scratches and one of the bumper's parts was sagging. In all fairness those scratches could have been on her car from the past so i have no idea and i dont know how she can prove or not prove what caused the damage, but it is safe to say that these fiats are strong little cars.

I remember a time when someone went into the back of the car i was in and the car we were in was undamaged basically while the car behind was completely ruined!
In thise case my car basically completley undamaged and the fancy X1 had some bumper scratches needed to be fixed.

Anyway what i wanted to say is i think this fiat 500 is a strong little girl!

Glad you're ok

And yes, agreed, they are tough little beasts.
