    why would i want to claim on my own insurance and pay the excess and lose my no claims

    its drivable already the actual light isn't damaged, car just pulls to the left a bit

    as for harris its never cheap there i've asked about parts that they want more for than if u bought them new Laughing

    Really sorry to hear about your accident. I think there is a company who settles claims from unisured drivers, might be worth having a word with your insurers regarding this as unfortunately there are too many people on the road without insurance these days. Think its Government backed not sure how it works though. Hope you ok. Any chance of getting the driver to settle up.

    Dont know if this is of help

    "The MIB is a company which enters into agreements with the government to compensate the victims of negligent uninsured and untraced motorists. If you choose to seek compensation via the MIB, then you will have to have an accident report. The MIB seek to compensate victims fairly and promptly. However, bear in mind that any claim made will be reduced by £300 – a bit like an excess payment. So if one claims for damage to the value of £500, then they will receive £200 in compensation payment."

    surely you could do it cheaper then that.. how much would the actual panels and parts cost?
    Oh and if you want any parts from harris', i could try for you as me and my bro go there all the time, the ladies there give us the parts quite cheap.. Smile
