If you go down the route of insurance then hopefully ALL your modifications are listed with the insurer including anything that you just had done at otherwise they can turn around and back out.
 
As keith has said get it out of storage becuase if the insurance dont pay for it, you will.
 
TBH, 99 spec or not insurance will write it off. New parts will soon add up. I can see an easy £6k on new parts there without labour, paint etc.


I can see a easy 6k too if i brought back the parts am using but am going to go the cheap way and by back standard parts.

I feel terrible for you :(

Was everything still running ok post accident?

Looking at that I would expect suspension and cross member damage - anything can be repaired :)


Everything was running fine, until i hit the bad slush which sent me to the barrier...

Got to the Recovery place today and found my car left there like a piece of scarp along with the other, there was no other option then to pay the realise fee of 430 and used there trailer which came to 190 to trailer it back home...









All home sweat home now and covered over with car cover until one of my friends who work in the garage comes to see whats needing done.

Just seen this gutted for you mate....had a similar incident in an evo on ice a few years back...was pretty much finished and smashed 2 brand new ultralite alloys and all the suspension...i nearly cried...as i was walking home wife rang to say shed broke down as well...headgasket gone on her mgf...was a bad week!!!.......can laugh about it now....main thing is your allright and not bang up in a hospital bed!

Lets hope the insurance kicks in but my experience of insurance company\'s is that there awful. hope i\'m wrong. There not gonna want to repair prob write off so make sure you have the right to buy back...may be an earner for you car and some cash.

Yo Leggy,

Yeah, Andy will pop down sometime when he\'s free to check it out as it will save my trailering it to his place and he\'s really busy now so not really good idea but really nice of him to help me out. Will wait for him to access the car and then i will see what i need, thanks all so far offering help.

Bad times, i was actually close to tears sitting in a my friends car driving away from scene leaving the car behind.
Insurance will be unless i think but i called and told them that day as i was in a panic that someone is going to hit into my 7 so called to say i need the car picked up asap but halfway thru the police came and and i said the poilce is here so its ok and hanged up, not sure if that claim went thru....:confused:

Really horrid to see this, after the work gone into it!

Hope you can get it mended soon - glad nobody was hurt.
