    some stupid **** cut me up

    Some clever ****** decided he was in the wrong lane this morning on my way to work and tried changing lanes right in front of me then slowed down.
    Tried to brake but still hit him slightly, caused a little bit of damage to front nearside.
    Looks like its just the headlight and top part of bumper.
    As for him getting my details, he said he'll just leave it.
    I still reported it to the police, altho he denies its his fault.
    I dont have the time for messing about with insurance and since it was the rear of his car hit i'd prob get the blame.
    Checked to see if there was any witnesses but was very early
    So took day off in hope of gettin the bits sorted.



    All i need to know is, is the bumper in two sections, if so i only need to replace the top half. and how much should i expect to pay at a scrappy or breakers
    How much should i be expecting to pay for a replacement headlight, temporary until i get my hennas
    My brakes felt a little light afterwards so am i better off getting them checked over.

    A headlight is about Ł40 new (trade I think) and afaik the bumper is in one piece - if you are doing it on a budget it should bend back (might be brackets underneath need straightening?)

    i believe that this is one of the few occasions that a collision into the back of someone else will be there fault...

    the problem is proving that he cut into your lane...have you got his details?

    If you decide to go outside of insurance i have a mint set of headlights that you can have for Ł30

    dint bother gettin his details.

    agreed to just leave it.

    I had no proof that he cut me up, i did stand there and think about it for like 10 minutes. his idea to leave it. It was very early this morning so the roads were very quiet aswell

    I also looked for cameras and unable to find any.

    Came to the conclusion, if i reported it to my insurance it would swing round and become my fault, as i did hit the rear end of his car

    he also had a lot of damage to the car previous of me hitting him so, not really sure, i took note of his license plate and informed the police.

    and my excess is Ł250 prob cheaper to repair my car myself.

    Probably better as you say to repair it on the cheap yourself, its just annoying when you've got to fork out your hard earned cos someone else was driving like a dickhead.

    Bumper just looks like it has popped off the holders. Smack it back in with the palm of your hand.

    If I were you Id still go through the insurane. Just for the principle of it. To me it sounds like hes slightly dodgey, or just really cheeky.
