Default here we go.............again

Well i suspect my latest 407 is a write off
A neighbour hammered on my door at midnight shouting that someone had hit my car and was lying on the road injured ( probably a good idea to lie down on the road after hitting my car).
Any he was trying to t-bone the house a few doors up and missed cos his mates dragged on the wheel and he hit my car on the o/s rear, moving it forward a good 8 feet and pushing it onto the kerb
Damage thats apparent
rear bumper
rear light
black plastic bits from wheel/arch/under bumper
o/s rear quarter panel is all bent/scratched
but the most important bit is im pretty certain the wheel has moved forwards, Not an accurate measurement i know but i can fit 4 fingers between wheel and arch on n/s but only 3 fingers on the offside.

waiting for it to be recovered for assessment and will keep you updated as and when

yep you did read correctly broke up with his girlfriend and swigging from a bottle of vodka !! If he had managed to hit the house he would have pushed my son's 106 into it,so either way we were getting trashed.

Good god! Surely this guy is going down for this? How did you find out what his plan was? Do you think car is repairable?

His mates in the car couldnt have been more helpful to the police, i suspect it was a very scary few seconds for them.
i think the car is a write off as i'm 99% certain the axle has been pushed forward

That wheel is definitely out of line the suspension would have took the brunt of that so its doubtful insurance will want to repair as to them 407s are now throw away cars !!

Hope you get another fresh one soon !!!

Nasty, could have a lot worse. The reason I'd never park my car on the street. I know one too many people who have had their cars twatted.
No more 407s for you though, you get them killed

What an idiot! How did he think it would have come off 'car vs house' anyway.

Sorry to hear about the motor buddy - I would be gutted as you probably are - I hope the little **** gets his

If it was me I'd be considering a civil action to recover the difference between the insurance pay-out and the actual value / cost of a like for like replacement
