    need some help, had a accident today.

    had a bit of a bump today, my fault wasn't concentrating for 2 secs and the car in front slammed her brakes on. only hit her at 10-15mph

    only need a new headlight (good time to upgrade to facelight lights), new bonnet (has 2 small dents on the front) and i need one of these:
    [IMG]file:///C:/Users/jay/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]
    does anyone know whats its called or how much it would be from audi

    also has anyone got a cheap pre-facelight bonnet they don't want anymore ?

    thanks for any help

    Jay

    When I go to Audi to get prices for parts if I'm unsure what to 'call' the part I just desrcibe it and then they look for it on the system with me there.

    If need be I'm sure one of the lads on here will have that information and price.

    Sorry to hear about that dude hopefully not an expensive fix. Another poor Audi driver for the Insurance to screw over, was there much damage to the other car.

    I have one of those bits that you've circled above. I removed it when I fitted my FMIC. PM me and make me an offer and I'll get it sent over to you.

    so you've told your insurance company......and you're looking at buying the things yourself ??? Do you only have 3rd party insurance ?

    I would be knocking at Audi's door and just asking them to do everything regardless of cost or blame. Once you get approval from your ins. co.
    original parts.

    This is correct but £20 posted is not bad considering the postage will probably be about £10 then £10 for beer. That part from the steals would be in the region of £50 easy.

    i suggest you do the following straight away if you have not done so already.

    contact the police and report the accident, failing to do so may haunt you at a later date, both in costs and insurance

    As long as you both have each others details, and you've told your insurance company, then there is no need to contact the police.

    original parts.

    I'd say this is a pretty awful idea!

    the cost of such a repair AT an audi dealer will be substantially more than the £1500 the car is worth.

    utter madness to let it go through insurance for the repair of Jays car, even if he were fully comp. He may get his car fixed, but he'll be paying for it for years through increased premiums, especially as it's an 'at fault' incident. if the car were fully comp, the ins co would almost certainly see it as a write off! In which case he'd be far better stripping the car for parts (engine alone will go for £800 complete).

    As Jay is doing, it can be fixed for just a few hundred quid to a perfectly good standard. best move all round I'd say.

    total cost is £165 so far.

    only thing i need now is a bonnet, but i can live with a small dent for now (about the size of a fist)

    A matching painted bonnet would be hard to find, even the same paint code will look odd as there are slight variations in colour. How bad is the dent? Considering it'll cost for a new bonnet and possibly paint, could a bodyshop repair it? Might be cheaper than you'd think.
