I got out to look at the damage and call the police. She absolutely didnt want the police involved. Her damage was both headlights broken, radiator fluid all over the road, grill broken, basically the whole front end deformed. My damage (when I looked at it in the dark last night so not conclusive until I reinspect), was my bumper scratched and the finish scraped off, thats it. Now thats what I call good bumpers:banana: .
Tomorow Im taking the car to the dealer for inspection to see if anything is out of allignment and to get a quote for the repair.
After a 20 min wait, the police finally came, did alcohol tests and filled out the paper work. And guess what, the other driver had to get a blood test done, so was over the limit.
Anyway, my question is, do the seat belts need replacing after an accident?
What should I look out for, what kind of "invisible damage" could there be?

DITTO, DITTO, DITTO!!!
Glad you weren't seriously hurt. Do yourself a favor, check in with a doctor and have your back and neck checked out. I was rear ended last year and it took 6 months of therapy to get my neck back to normal.
My wife got backed over by a delivery truck. She was stopped, as was the truck before it backed up in rush hour traffic. My wife got "hit" at 2-4 MPH.
This was Halloween a year ago, and she is still having significant back problems. Her main "mistake" was being tensed (pressing hard on clutch and leaning into the steering wheel/horn).
If you didn't see it coming, if you were relaxed, and if you were sitting straight upright and looking forward, then you may have escaped significant injury. And soft-tissue damage often takes 24-48 hours to manifest.

Her insurance better give me fair compensation for the damage to my Legacy (its worth more to me than book price and it was in very good shape and accident free before this), for my injuries and for my time. Good thing I have Legal insurance, they should be able help me on this.
