    Thumbs down Reckon it's a write off!!!

    I had a non fault rtc yesterday in my 04 gsi.
    It has only done 42000 miles, I have had it for just over 13 months.
    I have just taxed it.
    The passenger door wont open, the rear door doesnt like opening.
    The only panel not damaged is the front wing.
    You can get your fingers in the gap at the top of the door.
    Does anyone know how the insurers value the car?
    I'm gutted the Mrs says i've got to get a diesel know.
    I'm thinking insignia, i'm gonna miss the gsi tho!

    Aye no one was hurt.
    I was on the way to collect my youngest daughter from her second day at high school.
    It would have been where she would have been sitting, I smacked my head on drivers window, just like Jeremy Clarkson!
    Although the woman in her 4x4 was an arse, police dealing with it.
    I do have an independant witness who stopped, hes my new best friend!

    Glad you have a witness mate, always a plus! On the car front, I wouldn't be sonsure about it being a write off, i gor smacked into in 2006 in my X reg astra G SXi, similar looking damage to yours and also by a woman driving a 4x4, she was doing a turn in a junction as I was goin up the road, only she didn't atop once she finished the manouvre, she carried on out the junction without looking and smacked straight into the side of me!
    She had the nerve to say I was going to fast (which I wasn't, I'd just left a friends house and had bearly crept up to 30) I said "even if I was how would you know? You hit me in the side, my speed has nothing to do with this.
    Needless to say it was settled in my favour and my car was repaired.
    You never know

    might be worth buying it back from insurance you could strip it and double the money you buy it back off insurance for.

    Get best possible pay off from insurance company then buy car back off them at much lower price,they have to offer it to you first by law. hten scrappy some doors £200 should do it and fit yourself.

    That was what I wondered. If it isn't, then there is at least a fighting chance that it may be worth repairing. I know there could potentially still be damage to the pillars etc. though.
