Things that go bump in the morning
Been to the garage for an estimate. New bumper, trims, number plate, etc only required. About £700. See what the insurance says. Mind you, a mate of mums reckons it will be about £3000 just for the bonnet damage on the Merc coupe! It appears the problem for him was a steel beam that protects the back of a 307. The guy at the garage seemed to expect the amount of damage to the other car.

Current Mood: relieved relieved

Update

Rather than a new entry, I thought I'd just add this here.

Extract from an e-mail sent to mum :-

Just printed out the pictures and having looked carefully at the other guys car the damage I can see is :-

Bonnet out of line and part between grill and lights folded back.
Grill damaged on left hand side.
Left hand lights no longer flush with end of wing. ( See other side for comparison. )
Bumper no longer attached to car on left hand side.

( LHS when viewed from drivers seat in above comments )


( I got a shot of the other guys car using the XDA camera when I walked past his firms car park on my way between our two sites. It was parked nose out with only a low hedge between the car park and pavement. )

Oh and the family want to know why I don't have a Volvo like them. When my 307 does that much damage why do I need one? :-)

Glad you are OK, that sort of thing really can shake you up.
Hopefully it will make MercMan (TM) a little more careful in future.
