What to do....

Long story short - my 30km 2004 Alfa Gt had a bit of an incident with another car. Luckily no one was hurt! However the car looks like it will cost about 4-5k without airbags and about 7-9k with airbags to fix. Engine and chasis etc are fine. Its mainly front right suspension,brakes, hub, interior torn apart by airbags.

So here's my conundrum!! What should I do with it? Who would buy it in this state. If anyone knows anyone or can help me to get rid of it and get a bit of money from it - then i'd sure appreciate it!

Based in Dublin, Ireland.

Why don't you just claim on your insurance?

If it's a V6 then you won't get more than the values your quoting there mate - just take it as a write-off from the insurer and go get yourself another!

I'd be amazed if the engine and gearbox have survived with no damage! Get it on a jig and see how far out the body is. My 156 had a fairly minor bump on the drivers side A pillar, it was enough to cause a huge rain water leak through the top of the passenger side door!
