    Still in the garage, we have the quote for the new door, wing and sill. Yikes. Glad I'm not paying for it. It's going to be about 3 more weeks :eek:

    On the upside, the BMW hire car got sold from under me (RUDE!) and I now have a '17 E220 AMG Line :D

    Cor that's a tough result (enjoy!) - and remember, while you're using the hire car you're not sticking miles on yours!

    Indeed, we've already had a day out in Wales and possibly going to South Shields to visit the mother-in-law :cool:

    And don't forget they are also specially built for the hire market so that
    • They don't need any boring things thing like oil/water etc to be checked and
    • Any unexpected noises can easily be eliminated by increasing the volume on the stereo.
    • Tyres are made from a special compound that allows all bends and curves to be taken at high speed to enjoy the screeching
    • Engine and oil warning lights can all be ignored because they're the responsibility of the hirer.

    I'm very good these days, don't want another speed awareness course.
    Already put air in the tyres in the BMW. Luckily the E Class seems to be pretty good, only just over 1000 miles. :)

    I got my car back on Friday :D I'm pretty pleased, there is something not quite right with the door/rubber seal/glass. It's not opening and closing properly so it needs to go back and get looked at on Thursday. The guy reckoned yesterday it should only take a couple of hours. It's looking pretty again anyway :)

    When I had a prang last year the AA put me in touch with a firm called Claimfast and said they would deal with my claim as it wasn't my fault and I would not have to make a claim against my insurance.
    Basically they just got the driver who hit me's insurance co to pay for everything, including a nice cut for themselves I imagine.
    I had a brand new Jag XF for the week, but didn't like it.
    If this happens to anyone else it may be worth giving them a call. Everything was taken care of, including picking up and dropping off the car. I couldn't seee the join.
