    Default Too good to be true!

    I dropped my side skirts, front & rear bumper spoilers off to be sprayed today at the garage that's doing the repairs to my Signum.
    I tried to get a price out of the manager for spraying them for cash, but all he would say is "Don't worry mate, we've got the paint from the insurance company and we'll offset most of the cost of spraying it to them"

    Sounds too good to be true doesn't it!!

    Come on then, small pool of guesstimates.

    Should be done by Weds/Thurs, how much?

    Nearest gets a 2.2Dti badge FOC if they want it!!

    I think £75, but if it's correct I won't need your badge.

    i'll say it will be free too. Knowing what garages stick on bills to insurance companies i wouldnt be suprised if youve actually got more new parts than you thought.

    examples i know about include, a mates front end minor ding, even replaced the fabric bonnet lining and a full set of headlight washer pipes, both of which were undamaged, and the most recent example is my brother Astra Coupe that came back with a front irmscher splitter that he never had before lol

    I've just had a phone call from my insurance companies assessor (AXA).
    "Hello Mr Hopkins, I'm pleased to tell you that I've authorised the repairs to be carried out on your car"
    "Erm, it's nearly finished"
    "Oh, OK then, just thought I'd let you know."

    Also received a letter in todays post from NIG (His insurance), offering me a cash settlement for the damage, or take the car to one of their authorised repairers and admitting liability!!!

    I am pleasantly surprised by it all so far. I refer you all to the title of this thread though, and am not getting my hopes up too high!
