    Yeah I'm really pissed! Never know it may be salvageable? I don't hold out much hope though.

    Post some pics and let us know how much damage was done, too bad. Was reading up on this. Scroll down to 'brace construction'.

    Well I've managed to save it I think!. I've straightened it out as best I can, there is a little crack on one of the mounting points which is quite close to the weld but we'll see how we go. Sorry I forgot to take any photos.

    Good to hear.

    What's the brace material? Steel or aluminium?

    It's alloy good thing actually because it absorbed the impact well. If it was steel it might of damaged the subframe and floor a little bit.
