Car crashed....Insurance question!
Alright folks... Hope you all had a lovely Xmas and New Year.
Unfortunately for me i did not...Due to the fact i had a little incident on black ice last week.
Seriously, never known black ice like it. Even with quattro there was ZERO traction whatsoever, the car just drifted with the camber of the road. :scared2:
Anyway, the result is a cracked bumper, dented wing and scratch in the door. Oh, and 4 fully curbed 19" BBS CK's (the insurance are recommending all 4 are fully replaced).
So my question : My insurance company has their own recognised accident repair place which they will be sending the car.
Can i not ask Audi to submit a quote to my insurers to do the work instead? Also, if Audi do the work, will that make a difference to the value of the car...or not?
If any of you have had experience with this in the past, your advice would be much appreciated!
