    Well looks like im going to have to sell the s3 due to wankers who cant drive.

    Because im TPFT ive not got a leg to stand on when it comes to claiming even though i pay more insurance probaly round here £3000, yes £3k to insurance a car thats **** anyway. As it stands im stuck with a trashed s3 and no claims discount and im going to have to foot the bill.

    God help me if i find the stupid bitch that ran into me, i will literaly burn the bitch alive.

    As you can tell am not exactly happy

    Or no she tried to but stopped, then had the cheek to blame me, no witness's so my word v her's, looks like its going tobe a right long drawn out case, because im not fully comp ive got to claim my damages from her insurance through my legal cover.

    I feel for you mate. There's nothing worse than something trashing your pride and joy. It makes my blood bil when I see how bad a lot of drivers are on the road.

    This all happened on the 28/10/09. Yeah i took pics etc but without witness's its worthless.
    Nope, she was driving a 58 plate mondeo, company car, she was just a stupid dizzy middle age bitch, who like most women was **** at driving.

    Sorry to hear this. If you have pics and can explain both car positions at time of accident you might be ok if indeed she was in the wrong. It could take about a year to sort out though. Had a similar incident in my M3 with a motorbike, who hit my drivers side while it was next to the opposite curb. Hard to get your head around it buthe was trying to overtake me while i'd stopped ready to reverse into a drive way, plonker. Anyway, i took pics immediately at the scene (while he lay unconscious...with a paramedic) and won the case. Total bill including a replacement M3 for a month was £21k! Thank god for full insurance!

    Lesson learned, never insure a car like this ONLY TPFT!

    Sorry to hear about this mate. Really are some arse wipes on the road. 2 weeks ago my friend's Ibiza Cupra was written off by a lady too who also tried blaming him! Good luck dude.

    yup id approach one of those legal firms and see if they will take it on, dont mention that you have had your insurance involved....these people will take it on free of charge upon assessing it...i always do things via this method as your insurance have no incentive to get to the bottom of it, especially if your TPFT

    You need someone to give you a hand Dan,have you got photo's of the accident straight after it happened ? Solicitors are w**k and they aren't very good with cars but are extremely good at charging the earth,you need someone to help sort it.

    I used Autoclaims, no win no fee insurance claims company, and unless you have evidence or the 3rd party admit wrong doing, they are **** also. I had to get the police involved and take the other guy to court to get my claim to go through with my Passat earlier in the year, it was a long process, but I got a payout and managed to keep my car at the same time.

    Gutted for you,

    As above though - your best off getting proper legal advice and it might even be worth making a detailed post of the incident on pistonheads.com as they have a specific forum (speed, plod & the law).

    I'm sure your not the first person this has happened to and the members there (often police officers, sollicitors etc) may be able to offer good advice.

    Good luck & I hope it works out
