Something doesnt add up. The pot hole is 2 inches deep but your front bumper is higher than 2 inches from the floor....

It's called suspension. It compresses and rebounds you know. It's not rigid, although some have said it feels like it sometimes.

I've wrote to the council with attached bill for repair by BMW on 15th May. Today I received a email which read...

Quote:
"I write further to your letter and advise you that my file has been passed to the Council's claims adjuster, Gallagher Bassett International Ltd, PO Box 42501, London, E1 1YB.

In the event you have not heard from them within 21 days please notify us."
Anyone know what happens next?

When I hit a manhole cover, Scottish Water accepted responsibility.

Their insurers were Gallagher and Basset too but they have an office up here.

They were slow to respond to things.

It was my tyre and wheel that was damaged and they tried to argue that they were both subject to wear and tear and they weren't willing to match my invoices for a new tyre, wheel repair and tracking.

Only willing to pay part of the amount.

I argued that a wheel should last the life of a car and the tyre would be unlikely to have required changing in my ownership, so I would end up spending money I'd not have to otherwise.

I also highlighted that I had made an effort to keep the costs down by having the wheel repaired rather than asking for a new one.

They settled for my full claim of £460 or £480. Can't remember exactly.

What is the quote you have given them?

How bad did BMW deem the damage?
