Not a nice site. One thing bugs me - why are the wheels that flat? What about the run flats?

I saw a HB MCSC at the Rydale Bodyshop in Birmingham on the 13th. It looked like they'd just finished with it, so probly crashed a week before that. I bet I was the first crashed '54' plate MC :mad: :mad: :mad:

A friend of mine saw a rear ended Black MOC on the way to Birmingham Airport in July - that may have been one of the first. :(

I'd like to hope it wasn't the first, because MINI crashed a bunch of them in the testing and development phases to be sure they were safe :)

With that said, at least it doesn't look too bad, a lot of damage, but nothing unsafe.

And don't forget in a crash, its very easy for the tire to get pushed off the rim, so even runflats with their stiffer sidewalls can still have that happen, appearing similar to that picture.

It's only a scratch - Monty Python Holy Grail

A couple of tins of filler and a tin of spray, no worries!
