So much easier and less trouble to just walk away with your insurance payout. You'll save a large piece of your life by making that one smart choice.
What will your next Holden be??
Holden Astra 03 already got that **** haha, I own a HK Brougham and not sure if I don’t repair this I’m gonna look at an R8 or even try find another VZ Calais 6.0
Let it go mate they'll never be able to fix that properly did you get hurt?
needs more ride thread......
I wasn’t driving my partner lent it to someone
So it was insured but not covered due to dui or no license or similar?
Still, ‘fixing’ this isn’t an option.
Insurance paid out
You could have a chat to Hounslow crash at Aldinga and see what he says. He has chassis aligners there which you will need.
You might come in at 10k if you remove and refit the interior yourself there would be two days work in doing that.
So it is a repairable write off then rather than a statutory write off ?
Yea repairable if it was a stat I would part it straight out
Keep in mind you can’t insure them comprehensively again once it’s fixed. Also bear in mind that it’ll be worth less than market value too.
So did you buy it back from insurance company?
Go and test drive an R8 then ask yourself if it's worth the trouble of fixing your wreck.
Yeah, bought it back.. and I’m looking into an R8 being my next car if this repair doesn’t go ahead
I always believe that something that has sustained that amount of damage will never be the same no matter how good the panel shop is . I would put the money imto a new(er) car. Also as EYY said you can't insure it comprehensively so if you have an accident it going to be costly .
Yeah I believe the same I wouldn’t buy it off someone if I new it had the damage mine has had..
Anything can be done, as you suggest when you ask how much he is willing to spend.
But can you ever look at your car the same way again (after it has been wrecked and repaired?)
He needs the car repairer from John Wick 2
Please don't let ANYBODY but yourself drive you car.
Thats your answer then.
Too hard a basket and too expensive.
Unfortunately good cars get damaged and some beyond any reasonable repair. Yours is extreme.
Part it, parts transfer to another car or sell off the parts that are good.
