    Vehicle : insignia

    Trim : irmscher

    Engine : 2.0 cdti

    Year : 2009

    Default Just been hit but am i overreacting

    I was parked in a car park at out local spar and a big old red Jag reversed and hit my car i jumped out as i felt car rock a bit and chased him down the road.
    Now when i got out and seen damage i felt mad but after closer inspection maybe ive overreacted
    However he said he never knew he hit me and there's barely any mark on my car but he agreed to to getting written quotes and getting it repaired.

    Now on closer inspection the scratches will polish out i think but the small bit where's its took paint of has actually dented in so not sure what to do.

    IMO you havnt over reacted atall, when we all look after our cars like we do and take pride in them then I dont feel you over reacted atall.

    Misses thought he had took a big bit of paint off the way i reacted lol when i showed her she just laughed but as i said to the bloke the bumper was mint before he hit it so why should i settle for a scratched and dented bumper
    Anyone know how much it will cost to repair ?

    That's what bumpers are for, rather there than on the metal!
    I'd say you are looking at £150 to £200 to have that repaired, with the bumper being repainted

    These sort of minor dings don't bother me, by the time I sell the car it has little value anyway
    Therefore I would just go for a buff and touchup
    If the bumper becomes damaged again then it could be replaced

    However, for the third party, get two quotes
    I always get a quote from a dealership, then send them this, ouch
    I then add details for a hire car, typically five days
    When you total all of that up you are nearer £1000

    Why should you be left with a damaged car?? That's why he pays insurance. This happened to my mother in law, she let it go and everytime I see her car the scratch just stares at me!!

    Don't forget if you claim it's very likely your insurance will go up too.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Is he not willing to pay for the repair? His premium is gonna go up, so is yours and someone will have to pay excess. Might be best to get it settled outside the insurance's.

    You did not over react though!!!

    Yeah, i'd say. My wife left a scrape like that on someone else's car once. Long story but they claimed 3 grand. Total pieces of scum. Claimed for new bodywork, Labour, respray and courtesy car. £3000? What did they hire a Hummer?

    They're now under investigation for insurance fraud. What's wrong with just being honest nowadays?
