    Default 2500 miles, lapped the ring, gets back to England

    And then this happened getting a letter from the post office as there wasnt enough postage on it!!!!!








    Gutted isnt the word TBH. Was at a small junction and the guy came around in his Cmax straight into me FFS. He came over and asked if i was ok. After kicking my door open as it was jammed i told him to check his kids where fine

    Sill seems ok but the rear door wont open and is bent. Water can get in so got a cover over the car now. Hes admitted fault and ive a witness to say that aswell so all good. Courtesy car arrives monday (BMW 118d :smug: ) but ill be gutted if its wrote off - no idea what to replace it with either

    Such a shame after a great trip aswell

    ive found the sill is bent a little so think it might get written off personally. So considering another vec c diesel or something smaller not sure yet see what is about when i get the money

    As yours is a 55, might be economically repairable, although any damage to the B-pillar could swing it the other way.

    I'd be surprised if there is no pillar damage looking at that. I hope you get is sorted quickly.

    Take all your possessions out just in case. If the engineer sees it at the bodyshop and declares it a write off, it'll go from there to a salvage yard...and that's when your stuff "disappears".
