Probably under a grand from a good, honest repairers.
Re the darklines, they're a modification, so most insurers won't pay for that, you'll get a standard one unless you argue the toss (provided you declared it
I did indeed declare the Darklines to my insurer, and it was a ballache to do so because I may as well have tried explaining what they were to a Labrador puppy.
I hope you're right re. cosmetic damage, to be honest I do worry about that, and I'm struggling to think of this car, when repaired, being anywhere like the same vehicle. I'm hugely p1ssed off that this time last week I had a perfect car and now I will have a rear-ender.
