Alfa Accident!

Hi all, unfortunately, a drive thought it would be good to drive into the side of me last night and I have a number of scratches on the drivers door and the win mirror was completely broken off.

The car is a 2001 Spider TS.

Any ideas how much it will cost to have a new m irror fitted and the door resprayed. Can the y respray part of a door or does it have to be the whole door?

Thank you all in advance for any help given.

Oh jeez, that sucks big time. You'll get it back on the insurance right? I will not do an estimated price since it's more expensive in Norway than over there. Just had to state that I'm sorry for the crash :\

Unlucky buddy.

With regards to a respray, they'll probably want to spray the whole door.

With regards to the mirror, if the casing isn't broken and the aluminium casting is the only thing to have snapped then it's entirely fixable with Araldite.

However, if someone's driven into you it'll go through insurance surely, unless they drove off, the gits.

Re: Alfa Accident!

pretty much what they said. if your not doing the insurance thing. you can get mirrors on ebay or from breakers such as justalfa or alfacity. they go from £45 - £95. as for the spraying. at least a whole panel but depending on condition of colour, my local chap normally matches surrounding panels too.
