    It wasn't buckled before, all the bikes were fine.

    something about the 20 year old bike shed though- attention to detail and all that....

    The poor phots don't show it really. Anyway- this innocent bike shed and its contents were confronted by something Pearl black without any provocation whatsoever......

    It is an S3, but the wheel is the least of his worries. Apart from damage to Crown property(the shed), his car took it from all angles by the /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gifangry /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gifbike /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gifshed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    Looking at the center caps, I'd say that those wheels are replicas! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    my dilemma is simple................

    I know him to talk to, but not that well.

    how long do i leave it before asking him if he wants to sell me his silver leather

    PS- It also has an AMD remap i think. perhaps he wished it didn't now. I reckon he's got about £5k of damage here! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    As soon as i saw that, i wondered how long it would take to ask about the silver leather, beat to it already /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I really dont get the whole silver leather thing, still its way better than the caramac leather in VW's!

    He must've been going some to do that much damage to the rear of the car as well. Did he do a 360?

    That leathers got your name written all over it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Im sure he/she will sell soon after its repaired, so move in quick and do a deal for a swap.

    How did you get the pics and where was the driver?

    any idea if they would be likely to write this off? Whats the current percentage repair to value figure that they work on? I think the engine has about 110k- how much would that sell for...any ideas?

    It varies from company to company - the 'they' is a multitude of different companies with different underwriting philosophies.
