Look at it this way, the so called "approved" body shop I mentioned earlier quoted our CEO's PA just over £400 to sort out a dent and respray the near side rear wheel arch on her 320 cab. This was when she'd mentioned that she was going to be paying cash for it. Not a bad price you might think?
She then realised that her insurance excess was only £150 so said that she'd get the insurance to cover it. Guess what? They had to do a whole new quote which came out nearer £900!!! The reasoning? Has to be BMW approved for insurance, therefore costs more.
Shame really as the car still came back with over spray all over the door and the worst colour match I've ever seen!
So yes, the whole thing is a damn rip off!
