    You work for Audi andrew?

    I've had this situation in the past where other people are at fault and say they'd rather pay cash than use insurance, my advice is don't even consider it, although its the decent thing to do giving them the opertunity I've seen it turn to sh*t sooooo many times. people asking for 2-3 differant estimates so they can pick the cheapest, telling you there "mate" will sort it out etc etc etc, in the long run why the hell should you be put out when it wasn't your fault. If this situation occured in a customers car or in any way through the company I worked for I'm afraid it would be insurance all the way for me.

    Also if it was my R8 it would be getting repaired by a fully qualified Audi approved bodyshop, a real audi bodyshop aswell not just the guy who does there sales work on the cheap!

    you can bumble round in a fiesta all your life and not get touched... then you step into an r8 and bang, some ladys smashed your rear. Thats is so typical.

    Really nice car though.

    Im going to estimate 4200 for the repair, just because its such an expensive motor. Do we win a spin if we are right?

    Whoa!!

    Great, bet she will be in for a surprise, i think you should call a doctor or have an ambulance at the ready when you tell her actual repair costs!!

    Although saying that she probably has a mattress lined with 20 notes, so she maybe able to make the payment, even if the notes have a slight wiff of pee!!! LOL

    report the incodent to the police immediatley, did you get whitness statements?

    trust me, YOU can get f****d over here if the woman says you reversed into her, you can not trust anybody when things like this happen

    a woman REVERSED into my mate and damaged her car more than his, infact, there was hardly any damage to his, he ignored it........ 2 months later his insurance company said someone had made a claim for whiplash against him!! he lost his NCB and his insurance went right up when it was due for renewal.

    because he never reported it or get any whitnesses he had no chance. so regardless what happens, have a police officer come out and take statements.

    when this woman sees the bill for 3,500 she's going to raise her back and start fighting
