Overtook a parked car didn't see that the road in front was blocked tried to avoid the cars in front but just clipped a Honda civic, it needs a new wing, bumper is okay just need realigned maybe. don't know about the wheel, has to be checked out

That totally sucks... had a bash in mine at the end of March, my bumper went into a Transit's towbar in the snow.... Just had my insurance renewal and my NCB dropped from 70% to 55% (so not a total loss on it) but the premium jumped about £200 as well as a result...

Well here are the pics post crash

The car is in the garage awaiting the insurance engineers inspection before any work can go ahead, should be tomorrow. So far apart from the wing only other damage is to the bottom suspension arm ( the off side wheel is straight so you can see how far out its been shunted ) so hopefully will get the car back next week sometime. Its been done in a repair specialists that I requested rather than the ******* my insurance company wanted me to go to, which however meant they wouldn't let me have a courtesy car...... bastards.

All but sorted now, getting the car back on Wednesday hopefully. A part of the suspension was slightly bent but they have replaced most of it on that side just to be safe I suppose. :hehe:

Got the car back today :) , 9 days after the 'incident'. Looks perfect very pleased with the work carried out, will put some pictures up when it finally stopped chucking it down up here to allow me to get some shots. The front bumper has had a full respray as well so got rid of the stone chips ( pity about the one on the bonnet though :lol: ) I moved the horns behind the sports grille when i got it back as well........... looks much better.

Glad everything is sorted.

Interesting what you say about the courtesy car. Pure spite that. Do Lexus have an accident aftercare service? My other car is a Mazda and if they are contacted at the time they take over the whole process of getting your car back on the road. They "deal" with your insurer and recover your car to a Mazda repair specialist and provide a courtesy car, all free of charge. I would be very surprised if Lexus don't do the same or better.

I think i would have got a courtesy car if I had taken it to Lexus for them to do the repairs. But the place I took it to are well known for the quality of the work they put out they dealt with the insurers they just didn't have any spare cars for me, not a huge company. All done and dusted now, needless to say I shall be changing my insurers when its up for renewal, was not that impressed with them.
