Re: SNOW & ICE!

Ouch!

I feel your pain. Its been Baltic around my way for weeks now, but about 3 weeks ago the grip let go whilst tip toeing down a steep hill going around a tight bend. The back end came round hit stone wall and then the front hit as well.

Total damage done; 1 front bumper, 1 side light, 1 front wing, 1 indicator, rear lights, rear bumper, and 1 rear quarter panel.

I was convinced it was a write off but luckily after speaking to a tame body guy, hes convinced he can straighten it.

Re: SNOW & ICE!

When the weather clears a bit see if u can get a quote from a garage to pay for it urself,
900 excess and ur NCB may go up.
