Oh NO!:cry:
Can you buy it back if offered? After all the work you put in it would be a shame to scrap it.

Yours was always an immaculate TY ZS180.

Sorry to hear of the accident. Good to hear you are ok though.

Does the damage appear enough to have bent any chassis parts or is it just superficial?

But if they write it off you can always buy it back! It's still your car. I payed £225 to buy my mk1 back and they gave me 2.5k for it

:sad: - it wont be the same around here if you don't fix it!


If you think it might be repairable then do get a quote, there are not as many parts that can get damaged at the back as there are at the front so the cost is often less then you think even if there is a fair bit of metal to straighten. You would probably be happier with the one you know than a similar replacement that you don't know the history of as long as its sorted properly.

Cheers Windy.

Will need a quick replacement TBH,but if I take some pics of the damage (from side & underneath/boot) I suppose it will help(incase you guys know a way to fix her)

Glad you are keeping the faith, TY!!!

Hope you can sort it, and can buy it back, swap all the good bits you want to keep and make some cash on the other bits.

OR

Maybe just the rear suspension thats bent, keep my fingers crossed for you and its not terminal. We know the insurance Co's will write them off for a scratched bumper nowadays.

Will be a swap to a new car I reckon as the rear 1/4 is very bent (door of its line etc)

I just hope I can climb back into a ZS 180 soon (missing her/it already & it's not been 24hrs lol )
