Hi Chris,

 

You need to use the IMG code that is supplied.

Bear in mind my 11yo was in the passenger seat. He came out of side road, I swerved to miis him an he accelerated into me!

 

 

In all it's glory (if anyone can be bothered)

A pillar touching the seat...Aaaaw, i was hoing to see it proper FUBARd.

I cant see any ££££ of mods but if your insurers pay out properly then you can buy that car back and re-use the mods on another car and may still have money to spare, but probably not. Depends if the mods are insured as like for like replacement. My 5k modded escort was insured with all mods declared but the mods themselves were not actually insured to be replaced like for like. I had to fight to get 2k after the excess on a car i'd put 5k into (not including the cost of the car)

I keep getting mixed messages now that my cars fooked. My insurer said twas like for like with the mods- they'd pay out or replace. But I'm not sure what's gonna happen cause I've checked all the small print and I can't see it in writing. Also the engineer, who viewed it yesterday, said it may well be a Cat B- I won't be able to buy it back. This is because the stub axle is goosed- the rear wheel looks like it's at a 45 degree angle. He said it would've been Cat C (buy backable) if it would've just been the bodywork.

 

 

That, to me, doesn't make sense because I could replace the rear beam for buttons but you'd never be able to straighten that B pillar (thanks for nit pick, Sid rick) the chassis, shell whatever you wanna call it, is fooked.

 

And another thing- he didn't even pop the bonnet, I could've had a Rolls Royce jet engine under there for all he knows, obviously alloys need declaring cause he couldn't miss them. He didn't even check the mileage just sed they'd be on Auto trader seeing what they're going for.

 

So if you crash your modded Escort, particularly through no fault of your own, get all your mates wiv em to advertise their's at a silly price and away you go- print all the ads off and argue the toss. The highest priced one on there at the moment is £1295 with 115k so I'm gonna expect more that that for mine on 57k

In all fairness insurance calls are recorded arnt they, so if they try to pull a fast one tell em to check the call. On the mods front, if its on your driveway then just remove all the mods before they tow it away or whatever they do. Its your car, whether they write it off or not its still your car and your entitled to remove the bits you want. As long as they dispose of the actual car/shell so it cant be put on the road again for safety reasons it shouldnt matter. Id do a supermarket sweep on it asap :thumb:
