156 V6 New Driver's Door Needed?
So there I am, popping out on the first sunny day we've had for (what seems like) years, to take the Alfa for a wash and what happens?
As I'm turning into a rather sharp right hand turning, a gentleman of a certain age driving a vintage 1993 Astra decides to turn right out of the turning at precisely the same time, resulting in me looking sideways out of my window in horror, shortly followed by the Vauxhall trying to enter the sanctity of my Alfa's cabin.
Result: Astra-sized dent in the door, a 2 inch hole near the bottom of the door, possibly a bent frame, and steam coming out of my ears...
So where next? Do I phone the insurance company and bear the brunt of my £350 excess and the joys of higher premiums in the future? Or do I buy a nice-looking replacement door from eBay for £40 and get me mate to do it?
