Good bodyshops in the Nottingham area?

I had some bad luck last night, some idiot woman cut me up on a roundabout and has all but destroyed my front bumper and passenger front wing! Does anybody know of a decent bodyshop or Alfa specialist in the Notts area who can give me a quote or do the work?

is it bad? because if you are handy with a spanner you could get the bits from eBay and save yourself lots o cash!

failing that i think Alfa Technico is near you!

It's bad enough! Passenger side wing is ruined, and bumper is also buggered! Woman I hit has offered to pay cash for the repairs, even though I've been quoted 1154 by one bodyshop and another said its beyond economical repair.
I could probably buy another 147 in better condition for under a grand.....

Not going to bother now, bought a 2001 147 2.0 Lusso yesterday instead ;-)

Does mean that I'll be selling my accident damaged 2002 147 1.6 TS as spares or repair!
Any interested parties.....

I can highly recommend K A Collins & Sons on Holly Lane in Beeston.

They don't do full resprays but for repairs their prices are really competitive and the quality of work is excellent. I have used them twice now, once to repair the arches and stone chips on my 159.
