http://www.overtongarage.co.uk/ they have a few damaged clio's and r expensive usually but worth a look. My mate repaired a 99 plate clio, plastic wing, grille, head light and bumper but i dont think it was too expensive took a while to get a grille tho. He paid 1600 for it 1.5yrs ago, used it to pass test and sold it to his g/f for 2k who rolled it 2 days after passing her test and was 3rd party only

What parts are needed to repair this clio i'm looking at ?

So far i think it needs.
Bumper
wing
bonnet
grill
two headlights.

Shouldn't be that much should it ??

My mate has a clio and he bumped his. It had very similar damage and cost him 400 to repair.

how much you reckon?

Well my mates car cost 400 to be fixed at a garage. I aren't an expert but i can do simple jobs like bolting on new bumpers and replacing headlights.

if not i have a friend who can, then if not i'll take it to a garage.

All i'm asking is if it is worth buying because to me it looks like a rather simple replacement parts job, there appears to be no major damgage to the chassis etc.
