    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Angry It's just not my month...

    Really seriously hacked off with myself now. Two stupid incidents in two or three weeks when I've never done anything like it in 20 odd years is taking the pee.

    Picked the kids up from school this afternoon, pulled out to the main road, nothing coming as far as I could see from the left, guy on the right flashes and waves me out and...



    Gutted, luckily the damage is fairly minor and all on panels that I was going to pay to get re-sprayed anyway and hadn't yet (phew) and more importantly no one was hurt.

    Ford Focus had come through the pedestrian crossing and I completely missed it visually because of the queue of traffic to my left, she swerved to avoid me and I hit the brakes as I saw the front end of hers come past but I clipped her rear wheel arch. A lot more damage to mine, thankfully my insurance is all fully up to date and all mods declared. One call later and it's booked in on Friday for the repair work to be done. Still damn peed off with myself though.

    Yeah, the silver lining in this cloud is that it's going to cost me less in my excess than the front end respray was going to cost that I'd been looking at, just depends how much of the front they have to respray as part of the repair. I'll have a word with the garage and see how much is going to be sprayed and how much extra it will cost for me to spray the other bits (bonnet and other wing) if they're not gonna be done as part of the repair.

    That looks painful Ian, really gutted for you. Is the other party claiming off you? Just in the current climate having a claim on your insurance is surely gonna put it up a few hundred quid next year.

    Honestly? no, I've always preferred the look of the pre-face. I think it has a much "meaner" stance and look to it and have never really been a fan of the facelift look.

    Yup, all going through the insurance, thankfully I've got full protected no claims, but it will still pump my insurance up a bit next year having the claim on it.
