Hi mjh93a,

A quick question, I have a 330d the same as yours only LMB. The wife managed to reverse it into a merc yesterday and the rear bumper is quite badly scuffed with a little dent just below the drivers side parking sensor. I reckon it needs a new bumper due to the dent and the deepness of the scuffing. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost to repair the damage to yours, this will give me a guide when getting quotes.

Thanks v much
Ian

I'm afraid that I have absolutely no idea what the reapair cost was. It was all handled through the bodyshop and I didn't have to do more than turn up with the car for them to repair.

I'm (still) just waiting for final confirmation that the insurers are all settled and that the whole thing has been put to bed. It's no wonder insurance costs so much when they take so long to handle a claim this simple.

All being well they should be finished by the end of tomorrow so I can get it back on Wednesday as I'm not about to try inspecting the work in the dark.
I'd be interested to know if / how they found this rattle in the boot. I have something I suspect is very similar. Getting the boot side panel off seems nigh on impossible..

Any hints?

Thanks

It's heaps better, but still not perfect.

They took out all the rear trim and refitted with anti-rattle tape, replaced the rear boot handle and the load cover (according to the paperwork).

I plan to have a bit of a poke around myslef to try and determine the remaining source.

Actually Carlos, she left a note for the Merc owner letting them know what had happened. I know how I would feel if someone did this to my car and didn't own up as does she. We may live in Essex but that doesn't make us scum!
