Default The discocab has been hit!

Some fecker has just drove straight across a give way and into me on the street next to my house. I went a bit mad at the poor bloke due to the possible fear of being off the road and not earning with three kids but soon calmed down and got three witnesses that all said it was his fault.

The damage isnt too bad but annoying all the same with a smashed bumper, bonnet, pushed back headlight and whatever underneath. I know even daft little prangs can right cars off these days so hope that isnt the case with this as i really like this car and have covered 20k miles in eight months without many issues.

Some pics

It actually happened yesterday and hes admitted it was his fault to the insurance companies. Im getting a hire car tomorrow due to mine having a damaged headlight so in theory not useable.

Wowzers, glad you're ok though. Hopefully they'll rebuild it, but stuff like a new aluminium bonnet aint gorna be cheap. It's a bit worrying that the twot couldn't spot a car that size trundling along.

Glad to see the Corsa couldn't that up to the might of the anti-matter from which the 407 is constructed!

He had to wait five hours for a tow truck too which was like a little poetic justice!

I expect it'll be in the order of 2-2.5k to repair, knowing how insurers estimate things.... so hopefully, the car is still worth more than that

BTW, just what happened to you is what wrote my 306 off, only it was a German on holiday and didn't look before pulling out into me as I was doing 40-45mph.... that wasn't quite such a lucky escape unfortunately.

oh dear this isnt good, but as has been said as long as no-ones hurt the rest is just metal and money.
hope its gets sorted out quickly and in your favour, will you be able to claim loss of earnings and stuff from his insurance??
