Bumped my GT

Had a bit of a todo this morning going to work. Car coming towards me skidded on ice pushing a 4x4 which was in front of me into the front of my GT. I wasn't even in it at the time because the traffic had stopped as the road was so icy and my car went sliding across the road on its own!

Its only the wing thats damaged and a slight scrape on the door, but the steerings bent so its now off the road and in the hands of the insurance co. (god help me!) who tell me there's no courtesy cars available due to the recent weather!

I'm just a little bit pi**ed off at the moment and can only hope they don't write it off

Sorry to hear that it would be a huge shame, if they did write it off, keep us updated!

Really Sorry for your GT, if the steering damage isn't to bad then fingers crossed they won't write her off.

Got my car back from the repairers today, been using a new Mondeo hire car which was surprisingly good !!

They've replaced the complete steering rack, top & bottom wishbones and upright which must be good news. However, they've left off the engine undertray, and managed to break the electric mirror switch in the door so I'll be back onto them first thing tomorrow.

First impression is they've done a reasonable, but rushed job. Its good to be back in an Alfa though!
