    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Difficult to say. It looks as though the radiator is bent, what about the slam panel??

    I personally would not go on their own description of the damage - it looks far more severe than they say - 'just bumper and lights' the bonnet has more than a slightly dent in the front lip. What is the 'loose' bit infront of the bonnet catch ?

    A personal inspection would be required.

    What are all the lights on the dash?

    So difficult to even guess without knowing the exact damage - at least the airbags haven't gone off.

    What I'm thinking though is that for an 08 to be written off rather than repaired, there must be a fair bit of damage - maybe hidden?

    Exactly, why is it being sold so cheaply, if all it needs is a bumper, lights and a bonnet repair? And why was it assesed as not economical to repair by insurer???

    Could it have been stolen (with keys),damaged and then it was found after the insurance had paid out for the theft?,hence the easy repair.

    Well the place selling it is a body shop (click on "me") and seem to have good feedback. If I were I would give them a call and ask for a proper description while they are by the car.

    It does look smart though and as D says, the bags aint gone off so thats a bonus but it may have some hidden or even lower down damage (look at where the bumper is damaged)!

    as what the above had said, phone to see what else is wrong or go and have alook

    if you get the parts second hand for about £300 plus paint

    if you get them new, about £700 mark plus paint

    I agree, if it had been worth the repair the seller would have done it. I would avoid this unless I could get it on a jig and check out the chassis

    I know which garage that is....I have drived past that a few times and do know that they are an insurance approved garage and do turn out some quality car's.....have seen damaged ferrari's coming in and out of their, obviously coming out repaired.

    Doubt they would shaft anyone as they have been there for years!!
