there's a small metal bar that run's around the side of the space. I started turning to early and hit the :censor: thing.

It's just made it's mark HARD.

:o S :censor: t dude, and a new one at that!

I've done a few body repairs before and i have to say that aint gonna be cheap.

Is your insurance gonna pay for it?

If not your looking at a panel beater (never be the same) or changing the door and side wing.

Im really sorry for you dude :(

Full sympathy from me mate!!! :eek:

I had a similar experiance with my first 5th gen Celica...I let my cousin use it for a couple of weeks first as he needed a motor at that point more than me.. (+ i used to borrow his MR2 Turbo before he mashed it)

i got the car abck off him on a Friday... and on the following Monday morning takin it to work for the first time 50 yards from my house...Some cow in a old clio smashed into the side of me and i was only doing about 3 mph as well...

Was absolutely GUTTED!

Hope you get it sorted mate... good luck..

i can't claim off the insurance i'm only 20... they will :censor: me.

It's hard to see from the photo but it's worse than it's look there. The panel is bent back 2 inch's.

I'm hoping it won't be much more than a grand but i'm not getting any crap job done. I need it to look as good as possible (like it did hopefully)

Well the more i think about it i would say its ok without new body panels.

I had a some twit smack the rear of my previous car and it was worse than that! Coast me £100 cash to get fixed!

I would say dont have the panels replaced and get a body shop to beat it and treat it. Shouldn't be more than a couple of hundred and you'll never know it was there.

I dont know any places near you but i know of a place that'll do it cash here in Reading. Probably no help to you :lol:

But honestly i would have said your gonna be ok with it.

Im in exactly the same situation as you mate. Im 21 and got 2 yrs ncb unprotected. Smacked me car last month and am keeping the insurance companies WELL out of it. :lol:

It seems that those bars were not quite visible, so claim to the parking place. Also for not having those bars protected to possible car damages and scratches!! :ffs:

I feel awfull when these kind of things happen to us... We are so carefull all the time....

Anyway, I think that it is a minor damage compared to a blown engine or a broken drivetrain. Can you change the whole door? may be buying a second hand door, same colour, same model... That's what we do here, is cheaper.

Cheers mate

Tell us how it goes

I would 2nd that!!! Although i'm only 18 my bro crashed his Punto (nasty) in2 the back of an off duty cop (none 2 pleased) and he just got a new light unit and had a very major dent in his bonnet!!!

Anyway, he took it 2 several garages and he wos gettin quoted £200, £300 and then went 2 a garage in Glasgow and the guyin there sed he would do it 4 £60, cash in hand!!!

My advice 2 u is shop around!!!

A lot of people have said to try and claim from Merry Hill (Where it happened) For the cost of a stamp and a letter i think it's well worth it.

I'm just thinking if i want it to look like new i will have to pay. I've had a few cheap spray jobs done before and they where OK for a 10 year old car but not a 3 week one.

If Macca.17 or Surinder can help please find me out some details. I want to get this sorted ASAP.

Thanks for the support lads. :thumbsup:

I'm sorry to hear of your dent (i did get your txt).. If this snow sticks today there might be a few more people with the same problem.

Man do i feel for you!

you both live near me - by wordsley hospital - so hears a bit of advise, dunno if its any good, Down by the dell hletics stadium there's an old petrol forecourt with second hand cars on the front and a shed building place next to it, well round the back through the old pumps there's this little body shop, looks sh*te, but we've had work done down there and he was really good - both work and price. ALSO, the b*****s of Merry Hell have got insurance for this kind of sh*t, was it on the new multistorey - cause if it was, then you're onto sumat cause its still bein built, and you can say it was due the builders on the first level - they've got sum crackin insurance you can claim off!

Head into B'Hill by the swimming baths and ASDA, and speak to the Citizen Advice Bureu.

Hope I'm of sum help, Dave
