wrote off my 1 week old williams





last night i wrote of my 1 week old williams



i went into a roundabout heard a clunk from underneath the car and it wouldnt steer or brake it just plughed through a bollard a road sign and in to a tree. the chassis is totally bent but the engine and all the interior is okay if anybody wants any of it just post it on here
 


unlucky mate! Did you buy it from a garage? car wouldnt steer or brake, sounds dodgy mate-if you got it from a garage i would be paying them a visit if i were you.
 


Bloody hell! Are you ok? Sounds quite dangerouse, I suppose your lucky you were going round a round about cos you wouldnt have been going to fast ( I hope).

Did you get the car checked out before you bought it? ie with the AA or anything?

Hope your ok

:eek:mailto:Cr@P">Cr@P news - sounds like your ok - dont know what could go to cause that - Hope you were Fully Comp insurance.
 


courseiave, my absolute deepest condolences mate...I am sooooo sorry for you.

Wait until you get a report before seling the parts :(.

Hope you were f/c insured

Thats really bad and defo sounds like something went wrong with the car.

Hopefully it was from a dealer with some kind of warranty rather than a private sale. Luckily you wrent hurt but could have been far worse.

If you have got any kind of warranty and come back against the seller I would get it looked into what went wrong as surely a dealer cant sell a car in un roadworthy condition. Was a PDI done etc ???

Unless something just broke but that would have been very unlucky. Did you get it inspected before buying?
 


Really sorry to hear that. Suppose it makes Willys that bit more exclusive now :(. Are you going to get another one when you get the insurance money?

oh my god! de ja vu or what,

im gonna check the dates.................

about this time last year i bought my williams, then smashed it up a week later, i was only third party fire and theft. ended up costing around 4k to fix, when originally believed to be 2k. was worst time of my life cos i was skint for months and months and depressed cos id just spent my life savings on me house a couple of weeks earlier.



genuinely gutted for you mate

Did u have the standard wheels, im interested i n them and poss interior. If you sell the salvageable parts you will make some of your cash back. From what you said it sounds like u are lucky to be ok. Mail me as soon as you know what you are going to sell at mailto:rajeshkripalani@hotmail.com">rajeshkripalani@hotmail.com or PM me

loadsa people want bits and pieces from my old williams but i really wanna sell the whole lot in one go.

its was only third party insured so it wont be on the total loss register or anythin like that if an hpi check is done so it could all be repaired but i just dont have the money.

Here is a list of what survived.

full interior front and rear seats absolutely mint with blue seat belts.

boot lid

boot spoiler

rear bumper

all badges

complete dasboard except for windscreen wiper control. that means all the blue dials the williams plaque the steering wheel etc is all complete.

the engine still starts first time every time and has a touch over 78000 on the clock

opening rear quater light windows

its definitely worth a look at if youve got a 16v already and wanna have all the williams touches. even the parcel shelf with the suit storage!

or even if you wanna repair it. theres quite a bit of front end damage and the chassis is bent.

if anyones interested in taking the whole lot. just post your offers ont this thread
 


Wait till you get an offer your happy with then i will make you a better offer assuming that they are genuine offers email me when you have a figure for the lot then i will give you my offer as i cant be bothered with bartering.
