Re: Nodz's Laser Blue GTI - And it gets taken away

Well they are coming to collect the car today, due to a technical cock up it was down to be estimated today but then they realised the car cannot be left anywhere secured they are collecting it and I'm getting either a Matiz or a Corsa  :sad1:

Hopefully it will be under their cut off value and it doesn't become a total loss. If it does there might be some Mint 18" Monza's with Michelin PS3's with 8mm front and 7mm rear up for a swap + cash for 17" Monza's soon or would need 17"'s on the quick as would rather these go on a car and looked after than some breaker flog them on ebay. but thats the worse case scenario.

Have i missed something here ? What's happened to your car ?

This is what happened
http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=46073.msg532036#msg532036

Good news is that the estimate has come in under the total loss value as I spoke to the assessor today so just got to wait til the morning for the insurance to confirm this.

Got 2 ideas of what I'm gonna do. If I'm happy with it when it comes back then I'm going to send it to JKM and get the engine knocking that has developed sorted, cam follower and something else that was advised by VW that has started to perish and alignment done aswell if they do it if not to wheels in motion. And then a detail and wheel refurb at A1.

If I'm not happy part ex it for an octavia VRS,but greenlight dont insure them but I can get one out right or finance for a mk6 GTI but don't wanna do that as saving for a house. So I'm hoping I'm happy when I get her back.

Finally found out I'm getting the car back this week. Which is good as I seem to have spent more on the car since its been gone  :signLOL: Some big changes coming over June, just got to get the rest of the bits.

Reason for the hold up, so I've been told, is that I got new leather for the seat and not reparied. Just hope its all been done to a high standard.

Can't wait to get back in her a go for a good drive  :driver:

Got her back  :jumping:  :jumpmove: :jumping:  :jumpmove:

Went and collected her tonight and really impressed with the work carried. Not only have they fixed/replaced both windows the A pillar damage and new rubber seal along the top of the door, I also got new front leather seat covers and new steering wheel   :drool: :jumping:  :jumpmove: :jumping:

Only thought I was getting the leather rebuffed and was wondering why it was taking so long but found out it was due to the seat covers and wheel being on back order. Bumped into the estimator and he reckons I was lucky to get the new leather as it was only priced to be rebuffed and sealed and lucky they accepted the supplementary estimate. Highways was also very good to deal with and very helpful throughout, alot better than previous experiences with insurance companies when dealing with claims.

Really happy with to have her back at last, just got to get used to the power again after having a no litre matiz for the past month.

Just need to get the planned mods onto the car now as it is definitely staying.
