And the rest! As it is going through insurance they will charge a small fortune. I got my arse tapped
by a lorry in my previous RX8 and all it did was crease the bumper crack one light and almost unnoticeably mark the bootlid. Went to the insurance's 'appreoved repairer' and the bill was £2,689
Thats a £40 bumper, an £80 light and a good bodyshop 2hrs for the mark ~£100 and depending on the colour and state of the bumper respray at £100.
They are all vultures and if teh insurance does write it off just get a couple of independant quotes and rear end the BMW body shop with them.
