Pads at front are newish, ebc yellow stuff. Discs were maybe a bit cheap from probestore. They didn't feel perfect since I got the driveshafts changed

I would say the front cross member is FUBA as it,s bent back and upwards,you would need
a scrap car to cut one out and weld in then a bonnet to align for the bonnet catch and
wing alignment or use bonnet clips to hold down the bonnet, if you go the bonnet clips way
you may get away with pulling the cross member out are the wings scrapping the
doors :?:

You may need an A/C Rad if leaking,did my mates one when he hit a deer was,nt leaking so bent
back in shape ;) get a bonnet first and align, bonnet clips or pins will do to hold the bonnet ;)

To he honest, it wasn't a bad hit. His car has a very minor scratch on the bumper. We were both braking hard so I think I went underneath and then weight of his sat on the bumper/crossmember
