    accidents happen..........

    After posting on TSN earlier, I thought I'd post here to get even more sympathy...... I need some support now guys.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Heres the story.....:

    Well after driving w/o damages to my car for some time now, it happened again...... some useless twat ( ) crashed into my car.....
    he tried to overtake me when i was driving on the right side of the road and when i drove back to the middle of the road (i was doing 20kms/h in a pedestrian area) he crashed with his right front into my left door and wing....... (at a speed of approx 40/50 kms/h.....).
    he said that he thought i was making a u-turn...... Apparently when another car was supposedly making a u-turn one shoud overtake and crash into the side of the other car......
    Anyway I am well pi$$ed off because he had a withness and the driver and the policeofficer knew eachother from playing football.......
    Will be a nice legal battle and time consuming repair.
    The damage what I can see sofar:

    Left door
    Left rear wing
    The door doesnt close anymore and the wing is bent quite deep and high (the rear window doesnt close properly anymore....

    Luckily, the wheels are not hit so it looks like the bottomplate and stuff is not bent (also still drives in a straight line).

    Re: accidents happen..........

    Latest update:

    Estimated repair cost: EUR 5.000 - 6.000........

    Estimated time until ready: about two weeks.

    Parts needed:
    Door
    Rear wing
    B-pillar (inside and out)
    Thing at the bottom under the wing and the door (dunno the name).
    Some other small bits and pieces
    Total geometry check and wheel alignment

    Currently driving a black VW Boring 1.6 and still negotiating to get an Audi (apparently the mobility warranty doesnt apply to accident damages)

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    PS does anybody know the amount of horsepower in a 1.6 Boring?........... it feels like a whopping 75....... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/snore.gif[/img]

    Been in the workshop today and looked at my car....

    the skirts were removed
    the B-pillar was removed (inside and outside)
    front bumper was removed (no damage but they will paint the whole bumper because of stonechips).

    well the insurance will pay, no doubt about that. The question is, whos insurance? mine or from the guy who drove against me. ..... If my insurance ultimately pays for the damage (and cannot recover from other guys insurance), then my insurance will raise the premium i pay by about 50%.....

    jaybeeS3, huh. Awful bonus system, and looking at the prices I've seen here, insurances sure aren't cheap in UK.
