    Well on my way to work this morning some tossa half a sleep hit me up the arse and pushed me forward.

    After getting the details and phoning their boss later for Insurance detail he had the cheek to say they caused no damage /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif and that I already had another cars paint on my bumper. He coughed up the insurance details and I explained that they had removed the paint and in fact revealed the gel-coat of the bumper.

    The Damage don’t look to bad but it crazed the Fiberglas and pushed the bumper back

    The Damage isn’t to bad but I think I have a right to ask for new parts rather than a repair when its not my thought so yep I'm hopping I can swing a S4 bumper out of it which is cheaper than the bumper on the car (S4=£358 seidl=£470.

    What a farce.

    Can you not get that bumper fixed? If so you should fill the side vents.

    Or you just fancy a S4 rear?

    Went to the body shop to get a quote and we agreed to go S4 as the lower piller is cracked through and I cant be arsed dealing with getting it fixed only for it to crack.
