    Hey all,

    I stupidly crashed my A3 damaging the near side bumper and smashing the bumper bar etc.

    I had it repaired through the insurance and just picked it up, i just took it for its MOT (when it rains it pours) and on a side note the guy told me there was a knocking in the steering rack.

    What i want to know is could the crash have caused this damage (i dont remember any problems before the crash) and if so should the bodyshop have picked this up and repaired it? If this is the case who should i complain to the insurance company or the body shop.

    Am going after the bodyshop as the have damaged the car whilst it was in their care anyway so am not best impressed with them.

    Cheers all!
