Very interesting. As you say, why has it been written off? That can't be more than £10k worth of repairs surely? Nice summer project for someone possibly?

A friend told me that if the airbags are triggered in a crash the car will always get written off and recorded by the insurance co. No idea if it’s true but it sounds plausible.

So it must be true then Grin

A wheel is £2-2.5k from OPC so easily written off Dont know

There must be a thing with red unrecorded cars Floor
