In a test of Pigeon versus the Taycan air intake then I can confirm that the pigeon wins!

I managed to hit a wood pigeon at around 70mph, if it had hit the bumper, bonnet, number plate then all would have been good.

Unfortunately the pigeon hit the air intake, it pushed the blade back which snapped the holder and cracked the panel behind the blade.

just got the car back after waiting 6 weeks for parts and £604 lighter.

They did keep the car an extra day to apply WLG2 Recall (control unit updates) and WHL5 Recall (check plug connector for drain hose)

stay safe and keep an eye of for those pigeons!

I hit an owl once upon a time. Dented the hood of my 8-hour-old Z3, and then it face planted into the windshield. Poor thing was grabbing a late night snack of road carrion.
