Re: Sad news

Oh Bu55er.

Going to be close so be prepared to negotiate with insurance.
I assume the 1600 is Euros so in our language around 1250 pounds.
Against a UK value of around 2K to 3K (pounds) looking at autotrader.

Remember, it is a negotiation, your opinion of what may be uneconomical to repair may be different to theirs.
You don't have to accept their valuations without discussion..... so haggle.

Re: Sad news

If any structural part of passenger cage is bent, e.g. door pillar, then it's screwed.

If just needs replacement door, OK doable.

Also consider rear left suspension may be bent, sounds like wheel was shoved into kerb sideways.

Re: Sad news

Eeeewe nasty
If there is no damage to floor pan behind that bent sill and the door pillars not distorted (don't seem to be), should be okay.
Just depends on price and what insurance want to pay
