Damn those HID headlights making things look white!
That "carrier bag" in the road wasn't a carrier bag. It was a large rock which has torn a massive hole in the sump :(

I've just waved bye bye to my Civ on the back of a recovery truck.

Sad times :(

This was my first thought.
mns, taking into account the size of your excess, then the increased premium at renewal(whether you have protected NCD or not), you might be better off paying for it out of your own pocket.
Assuming of course there is no engine damage caused by continuing to drive after the incident.

Hope you get it sorted quickly though mate, i can appreciate how you must have felt when it happened.
A similar thing happened to my dad 16 years ago in his new Escort Si - was driving along an unfinished road in a new residential building site where he was buying a house, and a rock ripped a hole in the sump. He paid for that himself.

Cheers Ron,
I've already pre-warned the repair centre to let me know the cost before repair if it is just a case of replacing the sump pan, gasket and oil!!
My excess is £300, but luckily, I have a 10 years protected NCD! Phew! :)
Every cloud and all that!
