    they didnt write off my punto >:-(

    someone whacked me in my crappy old N reg punto about 4 months ago. I was just about to part ex it when i got my astra. I obviously couldnt due to the damage.

    Here i am , several months later, finally sorted it and the other guys insurer said go ahead with a repair quote i had of 500 quid...... The thing is only worth about 400, tops.

    It also need tax and MOT, so i would come out of it with about 200-250, as opposed to the significant extra the dealer would have given me for it.
    Plus i have to go through the hassle of repair, tax, test, then sell. what if it fails the MOT?!?!?

    should i try change the insurers mind and get em to write it off?
    surely they should have in the first place.

    just want rid.

    Shame you didn't get someone with a Land-Rover to finish it off before getting quotes to get it fixed.
