    Default Is it a write-off ?

    All,

    Is this damage repairable or will the insurance write the car off ? It is a low mile, 56 plate 2.2 SRi in immaculate condition otherwise ! hit by a 17y.o. 1 month driver

    Thanks

    Need to see the whole car as kinda hard to tell, but with suspension damage its highly possible.

    bumper, lights, inner wing, outer wing, suspension strut, lower arm, drive shaft, undertray, alloy wheel, tyre, possbile gearbox damage?, steering rack?, bonnet?, door?, sill?, mouldings, plus more... paint, labour.... my guess is write off mate

    Guys

    Thanks for your views. I attach a pic of the whole car. Been waiting nearly 2weeks for it to be assessed. Air bags etc all gone off and driver door stiff, otherwise the car is undamaged. I noted the drive shaft etc was pulled out.

    Cheers

    Airbag deployment alone is enough to write a car off. £500 to a £1000 per airbag, plus the cost of a replacement dash and headlining if the curtian airbags have been deployed.

    Lookig at the pic, it looks like there is a gap between the door and windscreen pillar which would suggest the A pillar has been shunted upwards.

    Agree with others - that'll be written off.
