combination of operator error, wet and hail covered road and a nasty off camber dropping bend...
add to that speed reduction via garden wall/hedge/rockery and the rest is self explanatory!!
so I have some maths to do.
1) Accept whatever paltry offer the insurance decide to give me
2) buy it back and strip it for parts
3) keep it and my NCB and strip it for parts
4)buy another and and put all the old parts on it and rag the tits off that one as well!! (the most expensive option!)
off the top of my head the bits of interest will be:
