I just cant F***ing believe it.
Ive been driving for years and I never had a crash, but I buy a clio two weeks a go and I trash it...! ! !
the off side lights have gone & the blue front bumper and I didnt know the front panel was plastic..????
I feel like sh*t.
I could repair it, but it would cost quite a bit.
its a K-reg 16v in dark ( ish ) blue.
the thing is I spent all me money buying it two weeks ago so funds are limited, I might go through my insurance..????
Sorry to hear about your car too.
i dont get it, i drove sh*ty cars for a couple of years, had a few little incident nothing bad, get my clio and people seem to home in on it especially when im not there so they drive off, i have had the mirror smashed rear bumper and lights. its not fair is it.
i did a similar repair on a 16v, basiclay a slight pull and a new crossmember and rad, i managed to repair the bumper, andything plastic is suprisinly easy to repair when your creative with fibreglass and a few liters of filler,
i priced a new 16v bumper a year ago and it was £200+VAT but people have been saying that they have slashed thier prices,
i dont want to be a downer but these things are always worse then they look,
try and take a photo of the damage with the bumper off
what ever you do dont go through the insurance it will proably be written off, the repair i did cost me £400-£500 and the quotes for the insurance for the repair were £3000-£3500 so it will be written off
well, Ive rang around and there a plastic repair place just down the road that has a new Clio 16v bumper and hell let me have it painted up for £150. then its £50 for the lights.
I also need a new front grill.
So it isnt as bad as I 1st thought.
im in HK running renault performance parts sales. creating a ltd edition clio 190!!!
um, trying to setup a cliocup series in asia, goin to see the director tomorrow. sellin cars, drivin cars, workin engines etc etc....so not much!
