    Thought I'd start a new thread to keep everyone up to speed with what's happening.
    Back story, going to work and going through a roundabout heading for the second exit. Old boy decided he was going to enter the roundabout at the first junction without stopping for me to pass. Front end damage localised to the nearside. Got a courtesy car within 24hrs. Big shout out to Adrian flux insurance. Got to see the car this morning. Front end removed and work ongoing. Surprisingly big list of replacement items. Note for all the drivers out there with modified but not declared mods. Get them registered. I'd of been screwed if I hadn't declared. It's not that much more to get a modified insurance through Adrian flux. A few pics below of progress. Will be updating as soon as I know more.

    Mindless drivers, and we're the ones to suffer.

    S3 looks great in Green.

    Hoping the body shop does a good job! Can never understand those who don't declare mods, only going to hurt yourself in the event of a claim! All my mods didn't increase it at all which surprised me, only an admin fee of £25.

    Looks like a glancing blow? but like you say lots of parts affected.
    When are you getting car back?

    Estimate of the 20th Feb, but I'm not bothered if it takes longer as long as it's right. I've got dashcam footage which is now with the insurance. So goes a ways to showing in my favour. I reckon I hit him at 15mph. Once its seen in my favour I'll post the footage.

    If you have to have an accident that looks like one of the better ones..........it appears to be bolt off bolt on with new bits.

    At least the old duffer can't use the "I never saw you" line! lol

    I've said it before and I'll say it again...what a brilliant colour!

    Hope you get it all sorted soon.

    Ahhh no nothing performance wise but have still seen people's premiums go up for some of the mods I've done and I wouldn't be surprised if mine had gone up considering my age. Sorry to get your hopes up!

    Glad you are ok. Doesn’t look too bad.

    Clearly not your fault, person already in the roundabout has right of way

    Hmm...I do think you were a bit quick off the mark, but you were on the roundabout first and the duffer in the Jag should have been more aware of you. It's not as if you're in a dark, hard to see motor !!

    End of the day, Jags fault.

    Dash cam footage always appears closer than reality.

    Quick off the line or not, it’s the Jag’s fault

    Did he claim he didn’t see you because of the 4x4 & trailer?

    Dashcam paid for itself that day.

    Also the earlier part of the footage shows you coming up the roundabout sensibly with decent gap to car in front and not just diving straight in.

    Looking at the pics, are your nearside A frame and front passenger door ok as it looks as though the wing crunched into them as it deformed?

    Jags fault. you were quick off the mark but not exactly launching out the roundabout so jag should have been more aware. broad daylight, bright green car and Audi bright DRLs on the car there’s no way he could miss you.
    He was probably annoyed/impatient at the white car in front of him being a bit overly cautious.

    At 1st I thought you were lucky then but watching 2nd time around you were clearly on the roundabout in advance of the Jaaaaag

    As others have said, you were quick of the mark but far from being "dangerous driving". So there was 0 chance the Jag was going to make it, his fault all day and twice on Sunday!
    Even if you weren't quick of the mark I couldn't see the result being any different.

    I don't think the twat in the jag slowed at all never mind having a look to check it was clear .
    I hope you are getting a good car while the green demon is in the shop.

    That is a bit of understatement - I thought he had parked up there, the driver seem to wait for at least two cars where there was no need.
