  1. Just had car written off ..

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had a low speed shunt in my 3.2gt which only just cracked the bumper and dented the bonnet. The insurers have just come back to me with a quote for £4400 which will write the car off. The category is 'n' for non structural damage. God knows how they came to this figure as it just needs a...
  2. V6 Written off - For the Third Time

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Disaster. Driving into work early last Monday, and felt the front lose grip coming out of a it under control (just), but the Hyundai in front of me lost it and punched a hole in the right hand hedge. I had to brake and swerve round it's rear, made that, but went sideways...
  3. Will my 159 get written off?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Basically i changed my mind at the last minute at a junction and in all honesty didnt see a car that was probably behind my 'A' pillar resulting in my crashing head on in to it. All my fault and i held my hand up to it immediately. First own fault accident in 27 years driving but no injuries...
  4. My 159 has been written off.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have had the great pleasure of being the second owner of a very high speck metallic blue 159 for 7 years. During that time I have covered over 80k miles. It has been very reliable and wanted for nothing. Full service every year, new brakes and discs when required, new clutch, plate and duel...
  5. My gorgeous, perfect 156 written off by someone pulling out of a junction

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Thoroughly pi***d off after someone pulled out of a side road junction, t-boned my 156 and span me into the front of another car. And they are trying to claim it was my fault because the nose of their car was over the giveway line so I should have assumed they wanted to pull out. The...
  6. Gutted... Car written off!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Yesterday while going on the M11 I had an accident. I was on the inside lane when the traffic on the outside lane (there are only 2 lanes) slowed a lot. Suddenly a car on the outside lane swerved without indicating or looking into my lane when I was about to go past it. I pressed the brakes...

  8. Sad day - 156 written off

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My wife drove our 156 JTS Sele through a flood in York over xmas. The car died and wouldn't re-start and we got recovered by the AA back to my father in laws house. The insurance have since written it off (CAT C) and a payout is on the way. A sad end for the car, although i suspect it may not...
  9. Written Off Again?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A numpty in a Merc pulled out of a junction and did this to my Bella last week. The car is fully sorted (and I mean fully - from the rebuilt engine with GTA cams to the all new oe arms on the rear and the alfaholics exhaust at the back - Q2 of course). The plan is that this is my daily drive...

  12. Car written off by elderly driver - he's now trying it on

    General Motoring Discussion
    So I need some advice here.... :mad: My wife and 2 under three kids were recently rear ended at a roundabout by an elderly driver. We're a family of 5 so the family car is pretty essential - especially with a French driving holiday coming up. Initially the damage looked superficial, but upon...
  13. think i've written off my 2005 1.9 JTD lusso - what next?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, Pretty sure i've written my car off so figured i may as well get another one. What do you guys recommend? Budget probably about 2-3k. I felt the 16v 1.9 JTD was a pretty easy engine to work on so was considering going for the same - but is that the right choice? What would you say? [email protected]
  14. My 156 written off :(

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Some ****** slammed on the anchors on an empty roundabout in front of me. No brake lights. Didn't manage to stop in time. I bloody loved that car despite all the money it cost me. :cry: Clearly a write-off. Headlights, radiator, bumper, turbo, O/S wing, bonnet and more all buggered.

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all, not been around much for a while, been sooo busy with building work, health issues etc...pretty boring really! Anyways, to add to my joy, some plonker hit me up the arse yesterday and has almost certainly written off my car - I'm awaiting a call from my insurer's engineer to inspect...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well as the title suggests i purchased a 159 TI SW 2.4 a few weeks ago. Black full service history but she needed a clutch, flywheel, cambelt water pump and a full service. I had all the above done and she drove like a dream for just over a week. Freshly washed and waxed her she was: I hwas...

    So, I crashed my 2004 Alfa 147 ti in the snow two weeks ago, totally my fault! Anyway, it was my pride and joy! They have offered me £1900 which I can understand why but I cant by the same car for £1900! Its a cat C and they have offered the car to me for £500. Would it be worth more in...
