    My Car's Trashed

    Some ******* learner driver pulled out in front of me on a country road. The instructor stopped her when she was half way across the road. I braked but couldn't stop in time so swerved, ended up going up the embankment, smashing 4 fence posts and stopped just before a tree and lamp post. I didn't even touch the other car.

    The Police and an Ambulance turned up.

    Now I have to find out whether its repairable or a write off (probably the later).

    The Legal people at my Insurance company got me a hire car... Rover 75.

    Cannot believe my luck with cars...the last one was stolen!

    Sorry to hear that mate. You must be gutted.

    If it's a write off here's hoping it all goes through quickly.

    Rover 75 is better than no replacement car

    the Rover 75 is the kinda car you give Pete as a courtesy car

    re: My Car's Trashed

    Thanks guys

    Have photos, which I will put up when I download them from my camera.

    I don't think I want the car back now even if they do repair it...the airbags didn't go off...god only knows why...the front of the car is a wreck.

    Rover 75 has loads of gagets (which I'm not use to) it was either that or Fiesta (however I wasn't given the choise)


    So the upside to this incident (if only a small one) is what should I get next?

    Gotta be slightly sporty or just out right sporty. Not OTT on Cost. Don't care about Fuel Economy. Can be either 2 seater or more (but not a bus)

    My mate suggested Impreza WRX but not sure its really me (Gold wheels!)
