ryan- after the first spin, there was steam coming out of the bonnet so i presume i split the radiator, i dunno whether it would have been a write off, didn\'t look as bad as dandans though. As it was stationary straddling the outside lane / central barrier, i left all the lights on etc and went for the hard shoulder pronto on foot. After a few minutes of folk slowing down and avoiding it, i was just half-nearly-thinking about getting back in it and attempting to drive it back to the hard shoulder when it got hit, thank heavens i didn\'t!! And thanks to the dude that stopped to help who also told me that was a bad thought!
Regarding breaking the remnants, the car was fully serviced by re:worx 900miles previously, compression tested at high 8s all round and a brand new x-treme single plate clutch was fitted. The engine bay didn\'t look too bad, but i know both axles were snapped and i reckon the whole transmission was a bit telescoped, so probably fubar. ergo, i am going to relinquish it to the insurance co. Also, i don\'t have anywhere to dismantle it. But if anyone\'s interested, let me know and i\'ll find out where its going.
Here\'s the last photos i took of her the weekend before:
