Just been run into!
I've been whacked up the rear in my Fn2 this afto whilst coming home, hasn't done that much "visible" damage that I can see, but it's what you can't see isn't it!
Anyway, my question to you guys is have any of you been punted recently and claimed, as I'm curious how likely it is that the insurance company will consider the car a write off!??
Reason I ask this is because I know one of my previous cars (a MKII MGZS 180), they were getting written off left right & centre for even minor damage simply because certain exterior trim parts were no longer available (for obvious reasons), and I know that there are some parts listed for the FN2's that you can't get any more already (interior parts granted!), but I just wondered if any of you have been unfortunate to have been in a similar situation recently, but with only fairly light external damage, but your insurers have chosen to write the car off (for one reason or another), or are they still coughing up readily enough and repairing them?
FYI the damage that I could see (it was soaking wet and snowing!!) was that it looks like the rear bumper has been pushed in as its now touching the towing eye, the osr wheel arch trim has partly been popped out of place (don't know if it's broken any clips!?), and it's scuffed the back bumper too - just above where it fits over the lower splitter assy (has GP pack fitted!) couldn't really see any more than that and obviously I don't know if it's impacted the boot floor or whether there are any crumple zone jobbies that the bumpers fitted too, and it's just squashed them a bit!??
Already called the insurance company and started the claim process, but I'd hate to loose the car over seemingly minor'ish damage (if it came to it!)
