    Default My Vectra - Accident

    I have got a 2005 "55" Vectra 1.9CDTI SRI.

    Yesterday I was parked at traffic lights when a stupid women went right in the back of my car.

    The damage did not look too bad just a bit of warping, scratches and damage to my bumper so we exchanged details and I went home. My car is a licensed vehicle because I am a taxi driver in Liverpool. So before I went out to work last night I had a look under the car to check for other damage because the rules are very strict for taxis. To my horror the metal bar behind the bumper is warped and split. After speaking to licesning they have told me I cant work.

    How serious is this damage to the car? At first I just thought it needed a new bumper but the metal bar behind the car now needs replacing. The wheel balancing does not seem right anymore and possibly the tracking is a bit out.

    Could someone give me some advise regarding what I should expect.
