    Need some advice ASAP!

    well i found out my car was a write off... grrr really has annoyed me. only had the car 4 months! The garage that my insurance company said that the repairs would cost £1900, and that my car is worth £1800 so they will not be repairing it.

    I just wondered what to do.. is it worth just scrapping the car, or is it worth getting it repaired through another garage or what.....

    i dont know what to do!

    what exactly was wrong with it? get a second opinion as well, remember its your choice of garage your car goes to not the insurance company's

    Get yourself some second hand parts from a scrappy and have it repaired. If you can find them in the right colour then even better. Is it just cosmetic or is there a lot of damage underneath?

    doesnt seem to bad to be honest, new front bumper, new wing and a new wheel, unless its majorly bent the a pillar or structural, buy it back and fix it

    if the damage is alot more, just take the cash, £1900 will buy you alot of car

    even with your excess being £400, you can still get a good astra for £1400

    did you admit liability?
