      Hope the damage to the car wasn't to bad. Must have been a big impact for to airbags to deploy?

        Yeah pretty big hit..
        Even the front frame took a hit, someone is going to see if they can straighten it out.
        Mechanical seems ok, front is all gone ofc, radiator and all the plastics.
        But overal its pretty ok, except for the airbag and dash, even the window is broken from the airbag... Dont know if that is supposed to happen..

        Ill add some pictures

                Wow it looked great before. I've had a car written off with less damage than that (apparently if two or more airbags go off the insurance companies aren't interested in repairing, even on a car 12m old).

                Good luck with getting it roadworthy again

                  Hi, really sorry for what happend! Don't know where you're from but i see your also from belgium. If you need an extra pair of hand i'm happy to help. I'm a bit of a ds3 wizard in my area.
                  I do have some spare parts laying around if you need some. Also I just boughed a pair of xenon headlights in poland (there so good over there) and will recieve them in the next 2 weeks. If you need a pair of lights for example!
