Got attacked by a Red Beetle...driven by a "man"

As I was exiting a roundabout, a Beetle failed to yield, I tried to avoid the collision, but couldn't completely. Bummer. The rear wheel is toed in, rear arms are bent, powder coat on wheels ruined, rear door is getting completely replaced (the inner structure was damaged) along with a respray of the front door.
Sounds worse than it looks.

Probably laws against this, but I'd be inclined to locate a heavy object and "enhance" the battle scars on the beetle.

Re: Got attacked by a Red Beetle...driven by a "man"

Wait a minute. The Beetle suffers cosmetic damage only and the Jeep has bent A arms and trailing arms on the rear end?...and the "inner" structure damaged on the rear door? Heck the fit on the fender and front fascia of the Beetle looks unharmed. The Beetle kicked that Jeeps Arse.

the bumper on the beetle worked, the jeep took it in a very weak spot, if it was the other way around, the beetle driver would have had something to cry about, sorry about the damage, it always hurts more when its not your fault
