    My Coupe in accident on way home from PVS :(

    GUTTED! Was parked in the services (between the whie bay marking lines as you would) whilst ian went in to get us some munchies and a 4 day old '10' plate Honda Civic pulled into the space next to me and took out my rear bumper that i only has freshly resprayed 2 weeks aho I was sat in the car and watched in my wing mirror thinking he wasnt gonna make it but i couldnt get out the car in time to stop him and he hit me . He was a gentlemen though and said hes been driving for 10 years and no accidents, he was genuinely gutted about the damage he caused to mine and is paying for it to be fixed as we decided it isnt worth his excess to go through his insurance. So the coupe is gonna be treated to ANOTHER spray job...going into vauxhall for an estimate wednesday morning...
    Unbelievable!

I spoke to him tonight and ive gota email a scan of the quote to him and he's gonna bank transfer the money to me. well i dont have to, he aint worried about it as long as its fixed but i dont want him to think i may rip him off! yeh it could have been worse but that car in my baby

    would he not? we both thought he would but then neither of us have ever needed to do an insurance claim due to having accident free driving since we have both been driving...15 years between us..

    the policy excess is for own damage/accidental damage or fire or theft, there is no excess for the third party section of the claim. he would just loose 2 years of his NCB which probably wouldnt be as much as hes paying out to fix your car
