That's the mighty Megane, that particular one is £26,000 which converts to $40,000! One hell of a performer though, they got the chassis setup spot on which is why it beats plenty of cars double or tripple the price on the racetrack. Sadly way out of my price range, as would the general running costs, I'd struggle to get 30 MPG in something like that.
I'm kind of p!ssed off, going for afternoon drive yesterday, hadn't even got out of town when a car pulling from a junction on my left forget to check right and pulled out straight in front of me. Done a fair bit damage, will need new bumper, wing, headlight and bonnet but luckily airbags didn't deploy. Still haven't settled my last claim from 3.5 years ago and now this. Luckily my dashcam recorded it, I'll post pics and the footage once the claim has ben settled.
Very annoyed, looked after this car, washed and polished regularly, just been serviced too. Hope I still feel the same about the car when it comes back from the bodyshop...
I'm fine, I guess that's important. But the car might be more screwed than I first thought. Looking at the crash beams, they look straight, but the structural bodywork behind looks slightly twisted. It's probably fixable, but if it's costly, they'll just write it off sadly.
I know that feel. I got rear ended while waiting for the light to turn green in the travel lane by a white van driver who thought the light turned green, but it was the left turn arrow. It's like he floored it into my trunk. I used to be anal about how my car looked slightly different after the repair (like slight paint overspray, taillight alignment which I got them to correct), but I got over it after a while. It's like after you give your car a good wash, you start to admire it and worry about its future and wish for it to stay safe from other people, no matter how careful you are
