A Lime edition has blind spot monitoring & rear cross traffic alert fitted, it really needs an approved body shop repair.

Any damage to the radar sensor brackets from the impact can throw the safety system calibrations out.

Same thing happened to me a few years back in my Astra. Insurance company classed it as no fault (on my part) so was very straight forward to sort out. Worst thing was the next 6 months getting hounded by personal injury phone calls - literally dozens a day sometimes.

Car went into body shop today for estimating. Clips on main bumper assembly have broken which necessitates a new bumper and paint job, plus a replacement black bumper insert, plus the labour, plus a courtesy car. Must be getting close to a couple of grand. Hopefully the other driver has not retracted his liability.

Still ongoing. The body shop has booked me in for 1st August. They reckon it will take them 17 days to replace and respray a bumper. That's 17 days someone's paying top rates for a courtesy car. At this point that's still my insurer who will aim to reclaim the whole cost from the other guy's insurer. No wonder insurance is so expensive. I bet Enterprise will be charging at least £150 a day for a CHR comparable car or am I being too cynical and the Insurance company have negotiated best possible price?
As the claim is still ongoing and my insurance renewal is due, the figures are depressing. The new figure is £476 as this claim is counted as me being blameworthy until and if the other insurer coughs up. I asked what the figure would be if the claim was no-fault, £234.

It's the black insert that is dented on mine but there are a couple of clips on the back of the bumper that have snapped. Therefore a new bumper and respray. So with the cost of the hire car this tiny bump is going to cost thousands.
Someone reversed into my Mercedes SLK rear wing a few years ago and drove off. That was £6000.

Still dragging on. Original bump mid May. Due to drop car off today but got call parts are on back order. Rebooked for mid October.
Oh wow. That's not great. Sorry to hear. You think you've done the right thing and it's not even your fault, and you'd hope this would be fixed promptly but circumstances outside your control are dragging this on. I wonder if this is all spare parts then?
