Bumper, boot, light, exhaust.
They might even right it off depending on part prices, and how old/value.

That's a real bug*er. Perhaps there's a deal to be done to your advantage, but either way I hope you get it sorted. That's a nice looking QP.

Parts prices and paint along with the labour will seal it's fate sadly.
Opportunity to buy it back and repair with used parts maybe if the car is as nice as it looks that's what I would be doing.
Good Luck.
Me too

Really sorry to hear this Alan, I know how much you wanted one of these cars - this is terrible luck.

Hope you get it sorted, and that the ensuing process isn't too painful nor arduous.

I had a small knock earlier in year (see Bump thread) it was rear bumper only and insurance came out at more or less £1000. This was for bumper damage and one bracket and anti bump material inside bumper

What is this fixation with X or H pipes? Why not keep it original?

Ah, that’s gutting. So sorry to see this.

No doubt you will have her fit again just need to lean on the assessor not to write her off. Take a cash settlement and no Cat and it can be fixed economically.
Having been through this twice in the last year, my understanding is that superficial damage that doesn’t affect the integrity of the car (but in the eyes of insurance remains ‘uneconomical to repair’, the car is written off, bought back by the owner) is then classified as Cat N?
