    Default Need some advice

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to the forum, need some advice from you guys.

    I got a 2006 1.9 cdti sri vectra, i just got hit from behind by a cyclist, now I have got a smashed near side rear light and scratched bumper.

    Does anyone know how much a rear light cost for a Sri and how much to repair the bumper?

    Worst of all, that ****** ran off!!

    photo to follow if needed

    Cheers everyone,

    Rear light is about £70 from a dealer, although Fleabay often has them on, seen a couple go for £5 !!

    As for the bumper some pics would be of use, as no-one will be able to guess at the damage its recieved.

    chips away will be able to sort out the bumper, also halford's do smart repair's, just contact your local dealer for a price on the rear light, very few and far between from the breaker's

    here are the pictures, light smashed and scratch to bumper.

    The paints had been taken off and the bumper is actually chipped, where the metal bits of his bike hit the bumper

    When you say "ran off" did he leave his bike behind???, if he did sell the F'ing thing to pay for repairs!!

    I'd say the bumper could easily be repaired, ebay for the light fitting as above

    chips away quoted me £95.00 for some relatavley small damage to my front bumper, and halford's charge about £50.00 per inch.......

    getting mine done for £65.00 from a local indipendant bloke and also having my front splitter re-painted and bumper touched up then machine polished for an extra £55.00, guess i am saying shop around mate as it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg

    Thanks guys. he didn't exactly ran off on his legs, he was still on his bike. He went off a pederstrian bridge that cross over the railway, i would have got my car up there if it would fit.

    I ran after him, but me on my legs against an idoit on a bike, I was always going to lose out.
