Looks more like she held a rally down the side of it.

Hope it gets sorted quickly

Well at least you have found the person who's responsible for doing the damage !!

It's a nasty looking ding though

Hope you get it sorted soon

Re: someone reversed into my girls gtv (UPDATED WITH PICS)

Really annoying but hopefully it's just a panel and a door. Unfortunately to fix and respray they have to cut the panel off at the top - it's actually the same continous piece as the roof and the panel on the other side. If they do a good job you'll be fine but it could become a rust weak spot. I had this on my GTV and there was no change in handling/scuttle shake at all, and no rust at least 2.5 years down the line.

It's not a write off. Will cost a good few hundred to fix though. Around £600 at least?

At least you can keep her and 600 seems quite good quote for the damage.

Ouch!

Same injury that I had on my last car, except mine was self inflicted. The quotes a had if I didn't go through insurance was about 600, whereas if it was through the insurance it'd be double!

Re: someone reversed into my girls gtv (UPDATED WITH PICS)

I would estimate the cost to repair £800-900

Hope it works out well for you

Re: someone reversed into my girls gtv (UPDATED WITH PICS)

i would imagine its going to be more like £1500 as
rear bumper scratched
rear quarter needs replacing
and door dented and scratched.

i got quoted £600 to just paint front bumper/bonnet and rear spoiler.

Re: someone reversed into my girls gtv (UPDATED WITH PICS)

Oh, I didn't see the bumper as well, although that looks more superficial than the other damage. Get at least 2-3 quotes. Try an independant Alfa dealer who may be able to recommend someone.

When someone dented my wing and door 2 yrs ago it only cost me £410. I did it privately as my excess was £400 so it wasn't worth it. But I should think around £800-1000 now. But not £1500 as you say unless they are ripping you off in your area. If it's that much I'd use insurance - especially as the other person has admitted responsibility.

TTFN

Godammit! That's a nice looking GTV too. Is it a twinnie or V6?

Re: someone reversed into my girls gtv (UPDATED WITH PICS)

its a twinny. my girlfriend is claiming off the old biddys insurance so as long as its done to a high quality it doesnt matter what it cost's. i dont even mind if they right it off as she wants a new car and i'll keep the gtv forever lol.
