    Help! :(

    Last night I managed to have an accident, nobody was injured and it looks like it might be a messy insurance fight

    My car isn't too badly damged just the front bumper and a few little bits the other car though looks like it will need a couple of doors

    I'm trying to keep cost to the insurance at a minimum and plan to fix my car myself for this I need

    Standard SXi front bumper (w/foglight holes) ideally in flame red

    Standard SXi Side skirts

    If anyone has either of the above bits they are willing to sell me please let me know.

    I'm still quite shaken up and havn't been able to sleep

    Thanks

    TBH you might as well claim, I had a fault accident this year, it hardly put my insurance renewal up at all. I opted to fix my car myself and I still havent finished - cant afford to. If I had gone through insurance I would've had it back to normal 100% but now it still has war wounds!

    My renewal went up £150 but would've been the same if I had claimed for my own damage. I found insurance cheaper than last yrs (b4 the crash) elsewhere so took that.

    The 3rd party still claimed off me so I dont think it would've mnade any difference if I calimed or not.

    Only fix it yourself if no one else was involved or if the other party wants to do the same.

    Glad your ok after it though.

    PS It was a good excuse to change my bumper for a coupe one! But the bonnet is still FUBAR.
