Yeah hoping so. Just weighing up how to get it fixed. Do I go through insurance or take a gamble and tell the guy a cash price

Gutted to see the damage on that @caddychris2002. If you’re going to ask him for cash, I’d take the bumper off first and look for other damage. That’s had quite a knock.
The carelessness of some people genuinely drives me mad

I’d definitely remove the bumper first and check for other damage as they won’t pay for other damage at a later date. Looks like the headlight has been pushed back on your Instagram pictures. Possible broken brackets. Check to see if the bonnet opens and closes properly. As I said in my comment on Instagram I’d be obliged to get the prices of everything from VW and a quote to make a new bumper and paint it. I’m sure when he sees the price he will want to go through his insurance. And don’t cut corners pal. Replace everything with new genuine parts. Remember they would do the same to you if the shoe was on the other foot.

Shouted obscenities at my DIY unauthorized machining that the drive shaft bolt clips made in my gearbox ! Then Spent the day changing it to a mk 5 02q box to find the top gearbox bracket is different .... Double dish out of disillusionment! Ouch my pride! ImageImage

Thanks to Scooby for getting me thinking when he mentioned DiscLocks.
Decided they were too much trouble to stow and fit so got an easyfit 'n store StopLock ...

Today, I looked at my newly illuminated engine management and coil lights with a sense of doom!! Looks like a trip to the garage is in order.
Firstly, I’ve got a 15 mile journey from work to get there so I hope I make it.
Secondly, I hope it’s not too expensive. Wish me luck!!

Cheers mate. Engine was running fine when I parked it up. No misfiring or similar so I’m hoping it’s just a sensor gone down.

Made up and fitted some bulkhead covers from 4mm Perspex and some rubber edge tape. Used the spare Perspex to make clear washers for the bolts to pull on. Amazing difference to noise levels and hopefully will heat up quicker too!

Nice job @ antcaddy. Lots of SWB owners enquire about these. You could probably make and sell them as I’m not sure anyone makes them anymore
