    Glad you are OK AtW, that looks an awful crash.

    Don't accept the first quote or two, most cars can be repaired... it happened to us some years ago we were told the car was a write off, but we kept getting other opinions from other garages, at the end we found someone who repaired it at a reasonable price.

    Unless your insurance pays off a good deal that would enable you to buy a new one that is !!

    Since the Brexit vote, the Home Office has really started to escalate fast.

    At least you aren't hurt. Cars are just metal boxes after all and can always be repaired/replaced.

    I hope no squirrels were injured.

    Never mind that car, glad you are okay.

    A friend got in a crash a few days ago and is on life support right now. If he is lucky he will spend the rest of his life paralysed. Things can go wrong suddenly and severely on the roads.

    It never rains but it pours.

    I think we need an emergency CUK mates and beer meetup in Brum.

    (You can come if you like AtW...)

    I have some experience with write offs In all cases, the insurance payout has been generous, so you may be pleasantly surprised (albeit my cars were at the lower end of the market)

    Glad you're OK.

    Sorry to hear this but the important thing is that no one was hurt.

    After a shock like that, the best approach is to go out and buy that 911 Turbo S you've been wanting for years now.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Yay new car shopping time

    Any accident you walk away from is a good one <- Manly
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
