Well after owning my Lex for close to 16 yrs someone decided not to stop behind me.😣

So it's a cat N write off.....The question I have to ask myself is do I keep her and get it fixed? (Rear bumper and a little rear panel work required). If anyone has any experience of this please let me know.

I have no idea what I'd replace it with TBH...

The same happened to me a few years ago, I just carried on driving it and have done since. Upload a photo, it may need a rear bumper if it's cracked. My wheel well was pushed in a bit but I don't use it anyway.

If you don't know what you'd replace it with, and you like the car - probably worth keeping it to be honest.

Find a good used bumper and get a decent local body shop to do the rest.

Thanks for replies all.

 

Dinho.....that's pretty much where I'm at. The spare is a little squashed so needs a little work there.

 

I've been told I need to have another MOT done to its roadworthy.

The back panel that gets pushed in on to the spare is very easy to push back out. It can be tricky trying to get the spare out itself but once its out, just hit it with a rubber mallet from the inside and they easily bend back out.
