ooo000oo they'll more than likely write that off sadly. The cost of repair will be 2/3rds the value of the car so they'll just call it a day on it. Just take the money and repair it yourself. You'll end up with a cat D car but if you plan on keeping it it won't make much difference.

56K beware indeed! :lol:

like the way your leaving the 1.6 90ps inlet pipe on! Sleeper style!

I would say now that dints been pulled out it should just filler up and should cost loads! At least thats what i hope! :)

@matt:- yeah i liked the idea of the sticker, sleeper indeed :devil: . it not the right one but it will do for now, yeah my friend did suggest that, but i am still going to fight to get some money from this guy, considering he was the blind fcuk who went into me :cry:, but i want her look tip top for FITP next year so hopefully my friend can weave his magic like he did for my arches 8-)
