sarcastic title out the way, on my way home from work today a deer decided to do an impromptu makeout session with the mini.
Physically I am ok, mentally I am no worse than normal.
The mini still runs and drives fine other than the busted headlight. but me not in good mood so me say few words.

@aperson NOOOOOO. I hit a shredded truck tire on the expressway in my beautiful pristine mellow yellow 2008 many years ago. Damaged just about the same area; not as bad as yours.
I did a ton of night driving on back roads for years when we lived in western IL. Thoroughly amazed I never even had a close call.

@aperson damn, looks superficial though. Depending on how your insurance is it might be cheaper to not claim it and fix it yourself

Oh, that sucks man!
Will insurance cover it? New hood, new decals, new headlight, new fender...bumper looks like it may be OK...grill looks OK....is the side mirror broken?

I don't think you need me to tell you how much that sucks. The good news is you're okay and the car is seemingly mechanically okay.
The front end on these is mostly that clamshell, right? They sold a lot of red Minis, what are the odds you can get another one already painted to match secondhand to account for most of the damage?

ouch. Sorry. I'm glad it didn't come through the windshield and you're OK.

@aperson Ouch. Deer be like that. Glad it didn't go into the windshield. My sister was a magnet for them for a few years.

That looks like a LOT more than just a headlight. Maybe if you get the right Insurance people, it could be a profit turning write off. Maybe, @CarsOfFortLangley might be able to give a rundown.

Doesn't look like you hit it too bad, but bad enough where it'll require some wrenching. Sorry to see that man, but I'm glad you're okay.
