Matt (and SerJames) really sorry to hear this news. Good to hear that you have things in motion to get it fixed asap though. As has been mentioned, just watch out for yourself in terms of whiplash, delayed effects etc.

Matt, sorry to hear of this & hope you are ok. Please get checked out for whiplash. Definatley looks like your car is better built. Comforting about BMW insurance, glad I'm with them now.

For James, that is bloody awful!! So sorry about your car. Glad to hear you appear to be ok though. I won't rant about foreign lorry drivers, it would take too long.

She loved her little 16v fiesta, it was pride and joy. we Searched high and low for a low owner low mileage example which she only had 2 months.. She has another one now. After looking at another 10 to find the right one.. She was scared of going on the M-way for a year. She is a good driver tho, and she got paid out a few months later!

Fiesta Si... reminds me of my first car.

Yeah I'm fine, it was much more of an audible hit, I'd didn't feel a thing. If I'd had the stereo up loud enough I might not even have noticed. Got a family full of nurses and ex-medical staff so they're making sure I behave and am okay.

I've had a poke around under the back this evening with the old torch (maglite not glovebox) and it all looks surprisingly normal. Even the crash bar with the deformable mounting pillars (see below) looks to be in good nick. All of the exhaust mountings I can see look fine as well. But we'll see what they find when they take it apart.

Cool was your MK4 a 1.4? or 1.6 16v? They didnt do 3 door MK4 Si's so and after i had a succession of mk3 fiestas, (Xr2i, RS Turbo and many others) we decided it was to be a in my opinion better looking mk3!

She wants a BMW now

It was a '96 (not sure what mark that is) and had a full 75hp from the 1.25litre lump!

You gotta start somewhere!

MK4 that is mate!

Miswah one is a 1.6 16v with 90bhp. Not much more than yours had.

Sorry to hear your bad news.

The good news is the back ends are designed to be strong to take impacts while the fronts are designed to crumple to absorb the impact and protect the occupants, hence the apparently more damaged e46.

Hope you get it sorted soon and to your satisfaction.

Regards

Chris

Cheltenham. No bodyshop in Gloucester. Though the bodyshop is moving to Tewkesbury and a new 2million facility.

Unlucky mate. I am sure it will be repaired quickly and get back on the road soon.

Looks like you have dealt with it the right way and I am sure you will put it all behind you.

Well it's in the bodyshop now, and I'm driving a 330d SE in black.

All I'll say for now (after driving 1 mile) is I'm glad I went for the MSport.

If they're swapping the rear bumper, and you can nab the old one, I'd be interested....






...oh, and "bad luck, hope you're alright" and all that

I don't think I'll get the chance to do that. The pictures don't actually do justice to the diffuser mounting section. It's pretty distorted and the mounting points are well out of shape. The trim bit in the centre section above the diffuser is also severly knackered

Cheers Viv.

The 3rd parties insurers have accepted full liability, so things should hopefully proceed as they should. The job card rasied by the bodyshop suggested it would be four days work, so there's a slim chance of getting it back for the dyno day, but I've told them I want it right, not quick.

I'll still be there, don't worry.

They can take as long as they need to get it right. Thanks to the people that the dealership work with I've got an E91 330d for however long it takes, rather than a Mini if it had been me at fault.
