Anyone any idea if this ll be a write off?
Due to some bloke thinking that indicating right means he can drive his van and trailer into the right hand lane without looking, I had an interesting incident with a trailer trying to mount my bonnet yesterday. Basically it side swiped my nearside wing, jumping a metre into the air in the process!
Doesnt look that bad but car is undriveable-well it drives but you wouldnt want to drive it far, it feels like its skidding when driving straight and you cant turn the wheel very far before the nearside wheel rubs on the wing. Plus the steering wheel looks like youre turning right when youre going straight ahead. Oh and you cant open the front passenger door more than a couple of inches.
Reckon I need a new door, wing, lower wishbone, wheel and maybe steering rack. Doesnt look like theres much damage under the bonnet-maybe the strut brace helped there.
Anyway, its got 121,000 on it so worth about 3 grand I think. Accident repair centres arent cheap.
