So this happened to the old girl today could be looking at a write off not sure insurances write thing off for the fun of it. Not sure if it does to buy it back or let her go. Currently just over 100k on the clock and not sure what shes worth :blownose:

some old bird in a lexus rx 4x4 jumped a red light didnt hear me honk and decided to carry on driving into the side of me.

Door dead window smashed wing scuffed and dented oh and mirror unit

That's a real shame, I would be really ****** if that was my car, hope you are ok and no one injured.
I have encountered many 4x4 drivers with big cars, but cant even park them or reverse or even drive them correctly.
I guess they will write it off, but if the car is good by it back, get a used door and front wing should be easy to find if its black.
Not sure if bumper it damaged, can't see from the picture.

that's not good chap, really bad luck.
So many planks driving around not paying attention or just trying their luck , it war out on roads today.
That will most likely be written off Andy, it's a real shame but not much you can do about it .
Hope you get some kind of settlement which goes a bit towards things.
best of luck.

Fsh, 88k, fully loaded and mint. As I just said on Ricky's thread you need to push and push for a decent sum of money for what you have lost through no fault o your own, I held out and it paid off.

Good that you're going to stick around Scott.
Low numbers on the other group shows their rarity value.

Following the neglect for the past year, I gave the car some much needed TLC...
Snowfoamed, washed, clayed, waxed then sealed!
All wheels were off, washed, waxed, sealed and tyres dressed!
Apologies no photos, poxy phone camera (Galaxy S9) won't focus! That's another headache - handset is only a month old:rage:
Spent the best part of 2 days (9 hours) on the car but for some reason Her Royal Highness isn't too pleased !!
Back to work tomorrow after 4 rest days:sob:

Sold the A4 2 days ago.. Now degredaded to a 2001 Seat Leon 1.9tdi for the next coming months untill I find a suitable replacement.
Owned her for 10 years, and she never let me down(maybe once, when the dreaded front suspension bolt kept her from driving for a day getting it loose to replace the suspension parts)

I used to have a '01 SEAT Toledo 1.9tdi.
Owned it for a year, great car and very quick. Sold it in the end as a MOT failure after the ABS module packed up.

I'll talk until I'm blue in the face about what terrible cars SEATs are, but if one has made it to this age them you've probably got a good'un.

The transporter used to unload them at the door and we (the dealer) would commence the warranty work before they went on sale. Brand new cars pishing water through seals and dripping oil before driving a mile on the road.

Just had a fresh MOT done, only 1 steeringaxle boot had to be replaced.. It's an ugly car, but boy is she quick(as she should as she is build for the track): fully polybushed suspension(front and back), GTB2260 turbokit, WMI, strenghtened gearbox with longer 5th gear, etc etc etc...

There was nothing wrong with my '51 plate Toledo, really sound, even at 15 yes old.
I put mk 4 Golf sports seats and she was great.

Cool!

Hopefully it gets the cosmetic TLC it needs, he seemed to appreciate what he was taking on and got it for a good price. He bought it unseen and I've not had any abuse from him so that's a good sign.

Nice to see it go to a new home rather than off to a breakers yard.

Doing my timing belt and cam chain + tensioner on my Dtm. Also cleaned the intake valve from carbon and waiting for my RFD kit to arrive so i can install them while the manifold is removed. Also ordered both new cams and vvt adjuster wheel.

Got my car back after replacing the gearbox, was very disappointed when they informed that I would be needing a new transmission mount, only 2 years since I installed the 034 mount which claimed a longer life time than the OEM...

Did you just replace with another Auto box in the meantime?
How is it otherwise, driving ok?

Yeah did a full replacement with another CVT, to be honest im still frightened to pressure it, but regular driving is ok I guess.
