It's only mud and it can be cleaned, if you had missed the puddle and ended up in the wall? Count your blessings....

I do not want to clean it though

Great picture!
Had to be inside turn 6 - it is a Lake when it's been raining a lot. Cars have rolled there before in the muck.

Did you drive out? Your floorboards look like you didn't have to walk in the mud to hook up a tow strap.

Much worse to do that on two wheels rather than 4

Wow, agree with Martin, better than a wall or tire. Happy you are okay and that your car is only cosmetically damaged. I bet that Martin has a product that will help you get it back to normal

Good luck.
