Can you upload a couple of pics of the devices themselves?

Does it look like the bonnet hasn't been opened for quite some time? You might see a habitual wipe across the dirty surfaces if it was opened. Were you waiting while Kwikfit did your tyres?

What about the roof damage if you do this? And you still have to pay a 60 excess for the windscreen.

And how do you know your premium won't still go up? You have to inform your insurer of the incident whether you claim or not and they will take this into consideration.
