    Somenone crashed into me....need new gsi rear bumper

    Someone went into the back of my Gsi in Glasgow city centre yesterday.....damage aint too bad, just needs a new rear bumper as its cracked, was lucky there was no other damage and that my jewel rear lights were ok!!

    Only problem is not too sure if the other person has insurance as they wanna pay for the damage to mine out of their own pocket, but I cant see finding a GSi rear bumper an easy task??

    Any kind person wanna sell me one or point me in the direction of a breakers who has one??

    Needed asap any help appreciated!

    Have also posted this in the wanted section

    I would have thought he would be insured but dont want to lose he's no claims etc. Say to him you pay but it goes into a good body repair shop as a new bumper needs to be sprayed well! If he dont like it then sting him though your insurance company but do it quickly....

    I would be tempted to ask him what he is prepared to offer you. I would have thought £500 would have been an nice round figure that will enable you to source a rear bumper and have it properly sprayed and fitted. Would also be a good oportunity to change the rear bumper of the GSI for something a little more styled - personally always thought that was one thing the GSI lacked was a good quality rear spoiler.

    I have a really good bodyshop I know and trust, its just sourcing a Gsi bumper that I may have probs with!

    I work for an insurance company so know all the hassles involved so if she pays up Id be happy.

    Gez there was one for sale in the For Sale section. It was cracked but he only wanted £50. He was from Irvine so not to far down the road from you.
