Some of you may not know this but I had a prang last week. Basically I took my eyes off the road for a second, and when I looked back at the road the car in front had stopped as another car was pulling out across traffic and I didnt have time to stop. I hit the C3 infront of me at about 15-20 mph.
Anyways, the Lag suffered front end damage to the bumper, bonnet, grille and the bonnet slam panel no doubt. The Bonnet had also moved backwards by an inch or so and the bonnet cannot be opened.
The car drives fine, apart from an odd tapping noise.
Heard back from the insurance company today and they've written it off.
I think the problem is they cant tell what extent the damage is as they couldnt get the bonnet up to see.
So Im in the market for another car when I get the pay out. I've seen a MkIII Modeo 2.0 Zetec that I like, but I got to wait for the cash.
Luckily I have hire car cover on my insurance policy, so I have the use of a hire car for three weeks FOC.
But TBH I dont care about the lag anymore, I have a new baby boy !
