Whilst it's very sad to see your FP with a few scrapes it's great to see how well it did. Unlike the Seat! Hope there were no injuries.

Yes, as #5 said, very sad to see this happen to you redonebe, hope you're all okay and it gets sorted . . . but the difference in the scale of damage between the old and the new is, frankly, quite astonishing!

It's such a shame that people often don't allow enough space between themselves and the car in front to avoid stuff like this . . and in dry, clear, good visibility conditions, it just shouldn't happen :(

Sorry to hear of your accident but its great to see the rear of the Fpace with little damage compared to the person behind, next time perhaps they will judge the distances better.

No personal injuries only a little shaken. I had to brake very hard while going at 120 km/h because everybody in front of me was braking and the FP stopped perfectly. I think the guy who hit me was distracted, he was not that close to me.

When i stepped out of the car and saw the other car i was afraid for the damage to the FP. I was really surprised when i discovered the result. Gives me a bit more confidence in the car. Within a few weeks it will be repaired and as good as new.

The only inconvenience was one of the sensors was loose and gave an alarm constantly. With a piece of duct tape this was solved in a minute :D :D :D .

You may want to patent the use of the tape before JLR start fitting it as standaed :lol: :D

I’d almost say how is that possible. Barely a mark but I can see the rear bumper has been dislodged a bit so new bit needed there more than likely but that’s a fantastic result if ever it can be described as that. Good to see and everyone is ok so that’s great also.
