The Dwarf got rear-ended by a Volvo

Other than a slightly dislocated bumper, and a damaged plastic underbody part, you can see bugger all on it from the outside ...

Yet ...

There's 4000+ in repair costs, on a rather generous 6300 remaining value
(actually, the asking price of the single second-hand CNG VW up! available online in Belgium , but with only 2/3rds my kilometers)

So for the insurance, it's an economical write-off ...
