    Ouch!

    It won't be written off, or it shouldn't be anyway.

    If it's an insurance job, it'll be a new rear quarter and a spray job.

    Simple enough for most insurance approved bodyshops.

    Just make sure you keep everything you spend when claiming and get your money back. I take it the Bora drivers taken responsibility for the accident.

    well i have phoned my insurance up they will pursue the claim for my £350 excess which is fine by me

    she accepted it was her fault then said her boyfreind would sort the repairs out,, no he wont i said

    itll be sorted no doubt but at her cost for sure

    Still log every phone call and anything else you spend (car parking fees etc) and claim them back.

    if so might buy it back and sell it
