    My father was driving my car yesterday and some numpty pulled into him and now my beautiful CLS is in pain. I've called the insurance company and hopefully everything will be sorted out. I'm going to be using WG-MB on here for the mechanical repairs and body work. I've used terry and jay numerous times in the past and I'm sure they will do an excellent job. So this thread will be a progress report from now till i receive the finished product from Terry and Jay. On top of this damage the passenger side door wont open and the parking sensors are buggered!

    Thousands upon thousands....Didnt help that It was a vinyl wrap and the WHOLE car had to be re-wrapped too....Hence it being white now.

    Thank god - it was a non fault accident. I wasnt in the car and some truck just ploughed down a really narrow road in Canary Wharf. So, I didnt pay a penny.

    the whole day has gone to sorting this out. First mobilo said they would drop the car to terry's today and now they are saying it will have to be tomorrow. Hopefully the work will get started on ASAP once the insurance have released the money. BTW Azam any difference in the feel of the car after repairs?

    It took a long time but that has something to do with the fact that the bodywork had to be sprayed, then it had to dry and the the vinyl wrap had to be put on.

    To have it fixed only took about a week, I think.

    Niketpatel71,

    So sorry to read this. Main thing is your old man is ok. A new wing and some paint and it'll be good as new.

    Hello Nik, is that headlight blacked out and, if so, have the insurance company commented at all?

    There's lots of posts on here about vehicle mods and insurance company problems.
