    the thing that would worry me is the fact that one of the engine mounts has gone , that says the engine was pushed back a fair bit
    so what else is wrong ???

    If it was easy enough to repair, why doesn't he just do the work & sell it on for abit more.

    May need abit of underlying work methinks.

    it looks like the o/s chassis is bent, that may have buckeled further down the car, if so id avoid it alot of man hours to rectify that & it wont ever be the same!

    Vehicle : insignia tourer

    Trim : elite

    Engine : 2.0 cdti 160

    Year : 2011

    its a bargain that is m8

    what your best doing is go n have a look in the flesh and inspect the
    damage and that engine mount rather than thinking if or but or what else
    cud be up with it,you just never know you may come away with a crackin
    bargain that needs very little to do.


    go n have a look and let us know

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    just wish he put the pics up of it with the smashed panels as well as they can tell you a lot more about possible damage.. If its straight as he says its a very easy fix to do can't understand why he hasn't done it if he went to the bother of removing the damaged components..
    My old Signum, the animal; she now rests in pieces in several other members cars.. https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/garag...vehicle&id=200
