lol, not a bad answer there Richard :P if I can pick one up for a few quid though, I will be happy!

 

Byron, sadly I have been crashed into! a Zafira decided my boot looked a homely parking space, £1890.59 of damage :D

When I rolled my rover when I went to collect my belongings I ripped out the stereo and they paid up with no mention of it being gone (considering it going in the crusher) I guess if they did question I would of said it must of flew out in the crash lol

I have been thinking about this thread and i wonder if you could remove "portable" items that were in the car - like headrest dvd players, windscreen mounted sat-nav etc

 

Now, if some of your accesories were "removable"/ "portable" shurely they could be removed in the event of an accident too-

 

like boost controllers, gauges mounted in pods etc etc obviously they would have to be easy to remove/ not "hard wired" etc

Portables can definitely be removed as you say hard wired though...

Hi Byron,Sadly I think I will be sidestepping the CMAX, I can get some mondy's which are going to be equivelant good family cars, but the CMAX is going to cost a few quid more than I will be paid out for mine (if it dies off!)

 

Also, I fancy a change, for a 2.0 Mondeo I can get more for my money than a CMAX of a 1.6 Diesel variant...

Just seen your other thread about accident so updated now. End of day mate your still walking albeit with a sore neck. Could be blessing in disguise as you did have the CVT CMAX, that it's self was a ticking time bomb

If they do write off then yes it possibly is a blessing in disguise but a painful and generally unwelcome one at that lol

I thought Vauxhalls came off the production line needing £1,890's worth of spend to get them roadworthy?

I'd spend about £1.50 on one.
Just enough for a litre of petrol and a box of matches.

lol, thanks guys, I was in need of a laugh, its been a painful day! had a physio assesment today, which hurt, recon I will be off work the rest of this week and next (due to an op) so I am fed up! and I am impatiently waiting for the other person to admit liability so that they can decide to write or not to write off my car so that I can actually get my new car sorted out! I have my eye on quite a few nice local toys, and I just want to go try and buy!!!

I bought my focus titanium thru a vauxhall dealer network, I even told the salesman that I hate vauxhall & wouldn't be seen dead in one:D
