Not quite as flash as a Veloster then, but a nice car nonetheless. All we got from the hire company was a 1.4 Corsa :(

We got picked up in a brand spanking new i40 tourer though, which was lovely.

They stopped assessing ours when it crept over the £2,000 mark and the damage didn't even look that bad!

Must be something in the air - I got shunted in the rear on Saturday afternoon :evil: ....although other driver has admitted responsibility :D
Damage mainly confined to rear bumper, valance, spare wheel carrier behind rear axle. However given age of vehicle I suspect it going to be "beyond economical repair" so will see what happens. I'm already being swamped with offers of courtesy cars (being brought up from Glasgow, 100 miles away) but I'll see how long repair/resolution is gonna take first.
Trouble is its aToyota Previa which are few and far between round these parts so whatever happens I know a) replacement parts will be expensive and b) replacement car, if a Previa, will likely entail travelling the country :|

Will see what transpires :xmas-big-grin:

We have been presented with an interesting dilemma. The chap who damaged our motor is an owner operator who does not want a claim on his insurance. He has asked us to get quotes for repair and he will pay them directly. Interesting. Last time I agreed to that it was a VW Kombi an uninsured driver penetrated side on. We had two quotes, the chap paid us cash and we got the whole van tidied and resprayed well within the money.
