That is nasty. I mean what sort of car do you need to have to get an even amount of tape laid down for the reg plate.

The term “light panel damage” in salvage speak is probably a lot more damage than the layman thinks.

You could roll the car and still end up with the same “light panel damage” description from some companies.

With a lot of these cases they have to provide a hire car of similar caliber, even standard hire cars cost a lot over a period of time that a car may need to be repaired.
We had a brand new 4 series gran coupe on BMWs staff scheme and it got rear ended on the M1 when it was a month old! The accident management company but us in a 520d Msport while BMW repaired the car at their Thorn workshop but as the exhaust was on back order the repair took 12 weeks. I believe the repair bill was just over £10k but hire charges for the 520d were about £31k :cry:
In the end it would have been cheaper to write the car off which is crazy for a month old £40k+ car

That's had a fair old whack!

My missus' fiesta st (before it got stolen) sustained similar damage last year. The dealer charged her insurance company £9800 to fix it. That didn't include any hire car costs, as they were going to write it off if she had taken out a hire car, due to the insane fee's they charge for them.

It's fair to assume Ferrari parts could be up to 10x the value (or more) of her Fiesta parts, so you can see how the costs sky rocket quite easily.
