  1. @Grey One I get where you coming from. I planned to keep this car for the next 10 years. I've requested the car back from insurance, So will get it dropped home, get a few bodyshop guys to come and assess and get quotes. I spoke to one today who seems to think only the outer shell has taken the hit and thinks he can sort it, but wants to see it first. @NothernDanIt's a good day for me. Insurance did pay out, not quite what I was expecting, but I'm happy to get something.
  2. @NothernDan Still waiting to hear on insurance. They waiting from response from Police to see they taking it further. I will keep it, I need to assess the damage myself or get someone to have a proper look at it. @Linas.P So are you saying I could get the damaged panel from an IS220/IS250? The insurance have given a CAT S. That's interesting! where did you find this? well I hope it's not a cut entire body sort of job otherwise I probably wont do it. If the body easy enough to repair I will go ahead and fix it over time.
  3. @Hangie I would most likely take it to Poland if I had it done, I would be grateful if you know any good garages there? but its early days yet I dont know what insurance will say, and how they go about stamping a category on the car, I would rather take it and have it unrecorded. @dandydons I cant say exactly where but it wasnt in Fife. I will try negotiate but dont really have many options in my corner 😕 I bought the car for me. I was gonna keep it for next 10 years at least so I am gutted to let her go to salvage so easy @olliesgrandad I'm not quite sure what you mean. I dont think it folded that bad
  4. @Hangie Thats incredible! How did you find this?! have you used the same guys before?
  5. @Hangie thats amazing! Yeh I did think about that, I have contacts in the EU that would do it, its just the wheel axles that I think will be the major work because the bodywork doesnt look all that bad
  6. @Neil E any idea where I would find a shell?
  7. Hi All, I recently crashed my beloved Lexus IS-F and am in need of some advice...The insurance company has advised it's a total loss. What do I do with it? The engine has not been touched and is in good condition. 76,000 miles. It's just this one side that has taken the hit. I have considered options: - repair it privately and sell - Buy an IS250 and swap the engine - Sell as is to a salvage company (for which I will get pennies) - Take it apart and sell the parts Any advice would be much appreciated. I am totally devastated.
