AMG A45 S + PLUS
i dont have to worry (about loosing coolant) at the min due to some clown reversing in to me
cheers but yes one of them things.Ahh I feel your pain man. **** happens just one of them things. Whats the damage looking like and are you giving it Mercedes to repair?
to be fair insurance have been great but i reckon as i had dash cam so no disputesIf the damage had been greater and involved some structural work, my advice to you would be to read the small print of your insurance policy.
Usually, it says that you can nominate your own bodyshop, usually with a small cost (say £100), you'll also not get your insurance company arranging a courtesy car for you etc.
But the advantage of going down your own bodyshop is, that you can choose an approved M-B bodyshop, at the end of the repair you would get an electronic M-B certificate of repair which stays with the car for it's lifetime, and a repair guarantee (usually longer than a 'normal' bodyshop).
PS: (Unless you object, I'll move these accident related posts into a new thread later, just to keep the coolant topic tidy for future forum readers).
I really know what you are going through. It was a hit run on my A45 where some thick inconsiderate dick dented the passenger door. I posted about it at the time and it cost me half of my no claims discount.i really think i should just give in !
went to hire car friday 1500 all good, went to car yesterday approx same time and front end caved in, no details left there some real dickheads out there.
