Haven't posted here in a while but would be interested in hearing opinions on this:
Last week someone in work backed into my 146.. his (156) escaped almost unharmed but I have a (slightly) bent & scratched front wing, broken indicator, and cracked & skinned bumper. The front crossmember (?) has been pushed back slightly too, screwing up the headlamp alignment.
Needless to say I was horrified... but fair play to the guy responsible - he left his number and has agreed to pay for repairs. He would prefer to pay in cash without involving insurance company, this suits me too!
So far I've got one quote from a crash repairer recommended by a main alfa dealer. He does all their repairs and seems to know his Alfas. He's quoted €1,200 (€1,000 cash) for repairs to the panels and a replacement bumper, indicator & sprayed up etc. (body-coloured bumper) This includes 12 hours labour which seems a lot but maybe not...
I'm worried that this amount may be above his ability to pay in cash and we may have to go the insurance route
Anyway question is 1) does this seem reasonable and 2) if not, can anyone recommend someone in Dublin?
Thanks in advance for any replies,
