Ok, so today i;m ill, i've got flu, so decide to give uni a miss... but then remember my parking permit is overdue.

So go out to get it, unlock car, alarm shows off as having gone off, walk round car.....

HORROR!

Someone has driven into the side of me (just) catching the passenger door (so taking a big of paint off) and then taking loads of paint (down to bodywork) and putting big dents in the rear part (where a door would be if it were 5 door)....

Basically, anyone a) know roughly how much repair is and b) recommend anywhere cheap in London I can get it done?

<img src="https://www.fiatforum.com/cardamage/damage.jpg" border=0>

the big white block where the door joins the back bit is a huge dent and pure bodywork (no paint at all!) - the flash didn't come out well.

thanks!

really? that would include knocking the dents out and repainting it?
it that's serious, that would be worth it (just got a quote for £600!), any specific place in mind?

thanks,

If someone hits your car and doesnt come forward the government will bail you out. I dont know how you do it, perhaps you talk to your insurers, but you shouldnt need fully comp insurance, and it wont affect no-claims etc, because it isnt your fault.

Good luck with this, try speaking to your local citizens advice bureau.
