Re: My white 156 is about to be written off - with pics....
Thanks for all the interesting responses. I was informed by the garage they would have listed it as Category C.
However.... I have just got off the phone from Liv Vic and they have said that they have authorised the repairs and are not going to write it off. Apparently the quote they have received is c.£1800 which seems like the 2117 quote less VAT. So they dont deem it necessary of writing off.
Its a strange sensation as i feel really chuffed as well as annoyed. Chuffed that old tippex will keep on truckin' but annoyed as it just doesnt seem right. Dont ask me why i feel this way, as my wife cant understand my annoyance either, but i just got built up to thinking it was going and was planning my next car......
Anyway, I have asked the valuing engineer to ring me and tell me what they value it at as i'm quite intruiged.
So there you go, now this thread is merely about the bump to my pride and joy.
Oh and finally i'm off to oz in March and will selling her, so if someone is interested in buying her then when she'll have c.105,000 miles i'll be looking for offers at around £1650.....
I dont care if she's got a face like Andrew Lloyd Webber licking ****** off a nettle. Send her my way!
