Hi Iambrera, thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I've already been on the phone to the insurers and they say that the car will have to be looked at by an expert first, before starting the repairs. They're very big on paperwork and procedure here in France. It's a country of bureaucrats :-( Still, despite that slight inconvenience, it shouldn't cost me anything, as I'm not at fault.
I have a local Alfa garage who know this car, they prepared it for me when I bought it, so I'll drop it there to wait for the expert. With a bit of luck, it'll be the Alfa guys that supply the temporary replacement car, too :-)
