Bad luck mate. If they do scrap it you could always buy it back from the insurance company or maybe an excuse to upgrade to a GTA. Depends how attached to her you are which I no is daft because she is a part of you isnt she:lol: Trouble is these type of accidents are all too common people getting too close we all do it and I am no exception. Any pickies!!???

P.s as a second thought how are you any whip lash?

if it's not a big damage, you'll be all right. I had the same problem, was fixed by an alfa dealer, but they had my car for about 2 months...

Sorry to hear that, doesn't take much to get classed as a write off though I'm sorry to say. This is a £3k plus repair :rolleyes:

That dont surprise me. What did you hit? The corners are very vunerable and even though some dont look bad the car is buggered. I caught the corner of a clio in my van and cracked the indicator but needed new wing, bumper and headlight cus all the mounting had bent and snapped :rant:

Rear ended a Vectra :rolleyes: My fault but in my defense it was snowing, my stopping distance was large but obviously not enough! :lol: Not much damage to him, cracked light and small damage to bumper. Oh well. I love the 156 but I do miss the V6 sound.

Ah that takes me back to my first accident having just passed my test and being 17 I did the same to a Pug 405 in the snow. I had a 903cc Fiat Uno:eek: :eek: . I didnt leave much of a gap then there was no gap at all. The bloke I crashed into was called Mr Grief hahahahahaha!

Thank you for your support, I am still waiting for the insurance assessor to have a look at it...........was hit whilst stationary by a Laguna the front end of which was totaled.........I want it repaired as the mileage of 68k for and X reg i recon is good.......it is a Super Lusso3.0

Sorry to hear about your car, If the Laguna was a mk2 model & its front is bad that’s some impact as the Laguna is a 5 * euro rated car. It does not take much damage to write off a 166. That’s how I acquired mine, could not believe that a car with so little damage was written off, no structural damage at all just a broken xenon headlight, & two very small dints in the panel work. You may be able to buy the car back from the insurance & repair it yourself.

My Super got repaired after rear end shunt last year - New rear panel, bumper, boot lid, trim and paint. Was 4 years old at the time with around 90k miles on the clock.

Good Luck.

Gosh Mitch I must have missed this. My sympathies too and I would have taken a blow torch to that bit of snow in your photograph.;)
