    Only just seen the thread about the day, glad your other half and kids are ok! Thats the important thing.

    As for the car, if it was me with mine, I'd probably get the car back and fix it. Holds personal value to me. If I'm right in thinking, if you take the car, you effectivly pay £900 ish for it? Plus the insurance money to fix it yourself? Provided the damage is under that payout figure.

    Hope it all works out for you, let us know!

    Me too. Have driven past a couple of times over the weekend and noticed your car not there.
    I remember you in a panic a few months ago over the missus taking your car out.
    Like you say the car can be repaired / replaced. They can't.

    if they've had 40% off the payout, then you need to ask...can i repair it with the 60% i have left... or can i get another one with it?..

    The main thing thou is that they all came out of it alive...car did it's job..
