  1. Sadly not! She received a text message from him this morning simply saying did she get his message which we didn't so I'm not sure what his stance is right now but he's obviously going to pursue it. I'll have to ring him over the weekend and sort it out one way or another. She did give him our home address but didn't take his unfortunately. I've had a rough estimate from an Audi dealership which is a ridiculous price but it's obviously worse case. If he won't negotiate and I end up giving him the whole lot then so be it, life's too short to dick about with these kind of people and the Mrs
  2. I take you're point, I really do, which is why I don't want to start reporting all this to the police. I think their behaviour was disgraceful, there are ways to deal with this kind of thing and bully boy scare mongering isn't it! I don't know who was at fault, I wasn't there, and maybe she should have stopped so I'm happy to pay half their cost as long as it's not some trumped up ludicrous cost. I'm struggling to forgive how terrified they made her feel but I will not be unreasonable if he's not now he's had time to calm down. What I do know is that a while ago a fella caused thousands
  3. I'm willing to give him half towards it, as you say purely for her peace of mind and as long as he doesn't take the p**s with a ridiculous quote. Our mirror on the Volvo isn't really worth bothering with, the indicator lens part built into it is cracked and that's about it, all motors work fine and the glass is all intact.
  4. No, no dashcams or witnesses. I am very tempted to tell him where to get off but he sounded like a nasty piece of work so I'm willing to be the bigger man and offer 50/50 as long as it's reasonable even if it's just to let my better half sleep soundly.
  5. My good lady has had an altercation with another driver on the way home tonight, what should the best course of action be? Here's what happened: She was driving on a narrow back road when an oncoming car, apparently driving very quickly, (2009 Audi A4 TDi) clipped mirrors. She didn't stop as there wasn't anywhere particularly safe to do so and as her mirror glass hadn't even broken she didn't think it was necessary. A few miles down the road while stopped at the front of the queue at a set of lights the Audi shot down the line of traffic, screeched to a halt in front of her car and 2 fell
  6. The advice I was given and acted upon at the time was to let the third party handle everything as they had admitted liability and I was 100% no fault. The chap who gave me this advice said they would bend over backwards to help as it's in their interest to keep the costs reasonable and the best way to do that is to keep you happy so you don't get an accident management company involved. For me that advice turned out to be spot on and I'm so glad I took it. It is a minefield but what from I understand the insurance is obliged to put you back in the same position you were in before the acci
  7. I'm so sorry to hear this mate, having just gone through a similar thing. I know exactly how you're feeling and words probably can't describe it. Remember that as the injured party if you or they can't find an almost identical car you can insist that yours is repaired to the standard it was before the accident as long as it's safe to do so. Also be careful if they've put you in some posh hire car that they say will be claimed off the third party, it can be a minefield. Good luck and hope it turns out good for you.
  8. What??? Admiral have just quoted me on a multicar policy:- '15 Boxster GTS, 15K annual miles - £335 '15 Mazda CX3, 12K annual miles - £220 It's almost as if they give a really competitive quote to win business then jack it through the roof for renewals - they wouldn't do that would they?!!
  9. Insurance time again so the hunt started! Renewal from Privilege was £664. Confused.com gave me a best price of £396.44 with a £950 excess on the policy which was also from Privilege!! Cheeky beggers methinks! I rung Steve at A-Plan who was doubtful he could match that quote on 2011 Boxster but he'd have a good look into it and call me back. He actually did call me back (something that rarely seems to happen these days) and said someone would get back to me from a different branch that specialise in the higher value market and guess what, I got a call back! Upshot is I've got a fully comp, NCB
  10. Hi, For the last two years I've used Nowell & Richards. They have been slightly cheaper than anyone else but give the added bonus of offering track day insurance for up to three events per year at £63 a pop. Hope this helps. Cheers
