  3. Potential Costs?

    well insurance been on and advised offer of over £3000+ shall be accepting
  4. Potential Costs?

    Will do thanks.
  5. Potential Costs?

    Yeah insurance company confirmed earlier total loss due to costs.... Gonna wait for report and then for 3rd party to dispute my value... Should be fun
  6. Potential Costs?

    I take it they will include car hire charges in their figures... Think my charges are about 47£ a day through my insurance that they will be getting billed. So if it's a couple of weeks before job can be done then suppose that will contribute to writing off? Have I mentioned that I hope it is? Lol
  7. Potential Costs?

    just as a rough guestimate...can anyone work out likely costs for bumper,supporting beam,rear panel,rear light cluster,tailgate, -suppose there would also be labour and paint/filling/prep to go ontop of that ?
  8. Potential Costs?

    Yeah my main worry was the gap... You can force the door to open but it's definitely moved.. Also concerned about the panel creased under the car as in the 2 pics first. I don't want them repaired... Would have to be straight replacement incase any further accidents
  9. Potential Costs?

    Well it won't be my insurers paying.. Will be 3rd party insurers.
  10. Potential Costs?

    30mph collision too... Car approx worth 2.5k at most, hoping to get written if possible. Do the assessors have to quote with new oem parts?
  11. Potential Costs?

    Couple pics if underneath showing panels rippled etc Rear quarter panel dented in couple places, bumper written off with trim, supporting beam behind bumper bent and twisted, tailgate all bent with slight twist, rear lights smashed, inside the spare wheel space is not crumpled but where quarter panel is there is gap in boot where you can see outside. Also rear doors don't open now as gap in panels is now nonexistent. Front door also seems to not be aligned now? Anyone take a guess on costs?

    So at least 3yrs away
  15. P0428 Dtc After Dpf Removal

    Good job mines a euro 4...apparently only tailpipe inspections will show missing filters, which the UK are trying to do away with. Obd will be used to read fault codes... No talk of forced regens etc.
