    It doesn't upset me. I work in the bodyshop trade so the more smashes there are, the more business I do.

    well as you can see the more accidents there are, the more work i have, which then directly feeds the bodyshops!

    is this a joke?

    love when ppl get all worked up about a damaged Astra somewhere in the world on a website or on tv programme etc...

    not quite sad times for the mk4..... maybe an unfortunate time for the owner of that example... not really anything else


    looks a bit like a Zaf to me anyway

    Not necessarily since I assume you guys must deal with write offs as well? All they do is clog up bodyshops while they wait for them to be removed by your company and similar.

    P.S It's not irony, it's just sheer coincidence. They could have chosen any mass produced car, the Astra is probably one of the most recognised on the road due to being so common.

    Yes but thats only after the engineer has reported it as a write off. We're the first port of call for europcar rentals, eddie stobarts, Third parties etc etc.

    We still feed you guys the work

    Where do you think the engineer reports it written off from? Only those that get taken to Police holding areas dont clog up bodyshop forecourts. However unfortunately they have to be left to be assessed somewhere.

    Yeah but we cant instruct the insurance company to remove the vehicle until we have got the engineers report through. Its a vicious circle unfortunately!
