So i've got a 1997 Z3 which has been my main (and only!) car for the last 4 years.

Owch! I feel your pain.

Although I think it's a little unfair to the Clio to say the damage on the Clio is alot worse than the Z because the back-end of cars is generally stronger than the front. The front does crumple as it takes the impact. Sucks to be the Clio owner though :D
