Just after some rough costage for some corsa c parts. Someone went into the side of it at about 20mph, dented door, panel where rear door would be if it had one. And rear, drivers side corner is all dented, light and fog smashed. Is that an easy panel to replace? Plus respray on the damage. Oh and tracking is knocked out and one alloy is foobared. Got one pic of some of the damage in 'misc cars' folder in garage, on my mobile so can't link it up myself. Cheers.

And thats without the bent alloy and whatever has bent to mess the tracking up, could be on the verge of a goner...

Someone pulled out, into side of him, spinning the car across the road, where someone else coming other way hit the rear corner of him. Has never been any question of not going through insurance, he just wanted to know rough costs, especially with the value of the car. Guy who you into him admitted full responsibility etc

Most cars are written off these days tho, if it costs more than 60% of the cars damage they write it off. Know plenty of people whos cars have been written off for minor damage,dented doors etc. Easy fix and could do it cheap your self. But for a pro paint job and a mech to do al the work its not so cheap.

exactly jamie most cars do get written off, my car got written off due to a dent in the quarter panel and broken steering/ suspension n they paid out 1945 n it will take a good few hours work cutting out the quarter panel n welding a new 1 in

Like i said, about 10hours for quarter panel @ 30 an hour is 300, plus price of panel, = 200 at most, =500, plus door, light, bumper etc say another 500 = 1000, plus paint + labour, + approximatly 1500.
