Hurray! I crashed too...



  RenaultSport clio Trophy
Luckly he crashed into the back of me at a t-junction so im fully covered any which way.

Anyone know how much is a new rear bumper and boot lid (worst case senario)
How much for resprays?

Under the boot liner, there is a bulge and creases in the weld points, can these be mashed out or is this more serious?


Cheers for any help.

Ooooh dear at the bulge and creases comment...

Hope it works out ok fella, but doesnt sound good.

He's paying though, so i wouldnt worry! lol

good luck pal, real sh*tter ennit

Yes m8 it sucks.
Sorry about yours aswell :(


Where should i go to get this checked out? if i go to renault it will be all doom and gloom.
I dont want my car written off, i like it.

Not a massive impact, its bent the rear bumber out of shape. Boot lid wont shut unless slammed. Boot lid creased / dented. Light cluster knocked. A small ish bulge on the boot floor and creases up the sides under the light cluster.

:(:(:(:(:(
 
Bad news lad, my dads friends buys and sells crash damaged cars, ive seen boot floors how you say yours is and they have been pulled out no problem, worst case is a new boot floor, wouldnt be a right off for that.

IF its a write off its not all bad, cos gap insurance covers it and ill get its retail value back.
As in the amount i paid for it.

Im sure they wouldnt write it off (i hope)
 
  1.6 focus zetec....
Its NOT a write off.... well mine wasnt anyway!! Was in the middle of a shunt.... bumper went, boot damaged, lights broke, echasut snapped, boot floor creased (to the point i couldnt get the spare wheel out), front bumper broke, grill snapped, bonnet bent up, fan broken.... and they repaired it at cost of £3000!!

I didnt even claim whiplash which im proud of 'cos i know most people would....:D

Why is that bad news?
 
  car? need a license 1st!
a crease in the boot floor? twisted chassis/shell? bad news :(

Unlucky fella, hope u get it sorted.
 
cant see how your NOT pissed off??

even if it isnt written off your going to lose s**t loads of value once its been recorded as suffering accidental damage/claims on a HPI check...

id be praying its a write off then get another fresh straight car!

^^ Guy accidental damage doesnt show on HPi check mate. Common misunderstanding.

HPi checks will only show total loss claims. Not any claim on insurance.

Doesnt sound like a right off.

Mates just had/havings his trophy repaired, new door/wing/sill and associated trim, front suspension, steering rack. roof skin, subframe, drive shaft.... they repaired that.

1, Hope your alright
2, Find the best bodyshop in YOUR area & TELL your insurance thats where it's going. Do not let it go to the 'approved repairer' ala cheap bodge specialist.
3, Sounds fine to me nothing that won't pull out.
4,Will not show on HPI, thats utter shitte..........
5, Good luck.

Pics dont seem to show the damage tbh

The clio did more damage to him than it did to me...hoho, and i thought clios were meant to be weak.
