    Unhappy Accident damage

    Right, I hit a dog @ around 50mph on a country lane near where I live, it ran out of a hedge chasing a pheasant and the poor thing did not stand a chance. The damage to the car is the front bumper, n/s fog light housing and poss fog light. I have a clean record for the past 15 or so years and have been told by my insurer today that I will loose 2 years NCB. I have no issue with this but my excess is £400.00 so, I am wondering how much it may cost for a new bumper, fog light surround fitting and colour matching to my facelift Silver Vec?
    Any idea's chaps.

    Get the dogs owners to pay for it as they are responsible as it wasn't under contol imo.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default

    Less than that !

    There's primed bumpers going for £165 buy it now on e-bay, and spraying mine was £120.

    You should be able to get a tidy second hand one for much less.

I have seen the ones on fleabay and asked about a facelift bumper, he said they are only available through the dealers? but would get back to me with a price. Failing that, any good recommended bodyshops in the Wakefield area?

    Certainly wouldn't be an easy repair, the bumper is split in 3 different places, they are a solid beast to hit @ 50. It felt like hitting a tree stump, and I'm sure if it was a larger dog the airbag would have deployed. No pics, will take some tomorrow. Is there a re-enforcing ali bar behind them? also I thought there may have been an oil cooler somewhere there (right in the biddle seems to have been the impact)
