  1. Someone drove into my precious Ka last week, leaving the rear bumper broken and scratched, but more importantly, the side panel of the car has a nasty tear and a dent in it. Am I right in thinking that replacing that panel would involve replacing the whole chassis? Anyone had an experience of what insurance companies do in this situation? IE, would the repairers patch up the side or would they just write it off? I'm dreading it being written off but I want a proper, decent job done on it so patching up wouldn't be ideal. Your help is much appreciated.
