    Angry My vectra written off!!!!!

    I Posted a thread on here a few weeks about hitting my vectra and setting all the airbags off. Well, after 2 weeks of scratching their heads, the insurers approved repairer has written it off!!! And they,ve taken their curtosey car back too so i'm stumped!!! Just go's to show hot technology is spoiling things really! Now i'm just waiting for the rediculously low offer from them!

    Could you buy the car back and pay for the repairs?

    Brocks beat me to it. gonna suggest the same thing. If its not that too bad a repair should be a nice job for a local garage to do if not yourself. Give us a shout with the buy-back offer they give you.

    will do plasma. Damage was, bearing in mind it was a 15-20 mph crash into the rear (tow hitch) of a **** old mondeo;

    New front bumper
    new bonnet
    new dash
    airbag kit
    crumple zone (guess they cut it out and re weld it?)
    seat belt tensioners
    airbag computer thingy
    cross member (behind bumper)
    headlight
    plus paint and labour. Guess the car just wasn't worth it!! ( in their opinion)

    So i guess its alot of work.

    bumpers a nothings job, bonnet it a nothing job. new dash bit of work... airbag kits are expensive.... crumple zones aint got a clue... seat belt tensioners, not too sure on.. airbag computer thingy - probably jsut a module. cross member is a bolt off- bolt on job. Had a run-in on mine the other week too, no damage at all to the cross member... headlight is fairly nothing job unless its an AFL unit then its expensive...

    paint and labour will round it all off nicely in their eyes.
