    Lucky, looks not too bad. Insurance will quote it. Need the hire car. Wife is 30 weeks pregnant and her 4 year old cousin is critical in hospital. Had to go down that route.

    Have to agree with that. Appreciate using the insurance may be the least hassle route to getting it fixed, but by the time you fork out an excess, and they then bump up your premium next year, I can see it costing dear in the long run.

    Oh, and:
