Re: People who drive into my car

I got his details. A ruddy great artic with a container on the back (you can see it reflected off my once beautiful paintwork).

I was lucky that I heard the commotion and came out to see what was happening.

He was in no hurry to admit liability. I had to show him where the paint had come off his bumper.

It doesn't matter what the car is - it's always someone's car and it probably means a lot to them.

But yeah - I am gutted. All the panels were still factory paint finish and I wanted to keep it that way as long as possible. It didn't even reach its first birthday. Resprays are never as tough (although this factory job was done with some seriously soft paint to begin with).

The insurer wants to use Bristol & London to repair the damage - are they any good? Does anyone know?

Re: People who drive into my car

Thanks all!

Hopes for getting it fixed fast are fading.

The (prestigious) company charged with organising the repair and providing a hire car has so far been unable to find a body-shop in the area (Twickenham) since Wednesday...

And I need it fixed by next Friday cos we're going on holiday.



Can anyone recommend a good body-shop?
