That still looks quite nasty MAC. I bet your glad you were in such a well constructed vehicle.

I had an accident a fair few years ago, got T-boned by a 40 ton artic, if it wasn't for the size of the vehicle... well, you can judge for yourselves.

Jeez!!
Now that looks nasty.

There was £30k of damage to my car, it was repairable without being a write off but the way I looked at it was when I was going to sell it......'have you had it from new sir?'.....has it ever been involved in a serious accident?'

You cannot lie......value then drops by a third!

Sadly it may get repaired and re-sold on as a Cat-D repaired vehicle. I'm surprised they didn't offer a new like for like given you've not had it that long.

Yep!

That was mine, looks in better shape now than the last time I saw it.

Done approx 1000 miles since I bumped it.

Does look good though.

States in the listing that it has 'Power Tailgate'......must have been added when it was repaired....or an error...mind you it also states 'Metallic Alpine White'....derr!

£50k for a possible cat D, how does that compare price wise with one without this history?
