    Waderider got a reaction from Flat4 in Car insurance - Auxillis Limited   
    A late update.
    I had the car repaired via the at fault drivers cost, At a Volvo approved bodyshop.
    I changed insurance to a more moral company - NFU.
    Car still with me with spangly fresh paintwork down one flank.
    Only issue is the odd trim noise from the door trim at the impact zone - turns out the trim clips aren't even available direct from the Volvo dealer - I tried - bad form Volvo.
    Moral - avoid ambulance chasing bastards

    99% sure that's the Ballahulish ferry, near Glencoe, which ran until I think 1973. Just down the road from where I live.

    Waderider got a reaction from Stevebrookman in What is the best car you have ever been lent?   
    Don't know if it counts but I've currently got a 18 plate Merc E class 220D courtesy of the insurer of the fellow who rammed my V70. I prefer the Volvo. Better seats, better headlamps, better waftage. Mind you, I'm impressed by 190 odd horsepower and 7.1 seconds 0-60 from a 2 litre diesel. Which reminds me, the Volvo five pot sounds better. Moral - save money, buy an old Volvo, not a current Merc.

    A small update, I guess for those who search for this topic in the future as much as anything else.
     
    So Auxillis were wanting to punt my car into a distant repair shop which seems to repair posh motors from a relatively modest address, but not specifically Volvos. The at fault parties insurer the AA seems to be using a company that is part of Innovation Group, and liability has been admitted on that side. They are offering me a repair at a Volvo bodyshop of my choice, a courtesy car, and recompense for the time and fuel to drive to the bodyshop for an initial estimate.
     
    So far so good with the at fault parties insurance then.

    I don't know if anyone has pointed this out before, but autoshite used to have some 'magazine' pages that pretty much defined the ethos of the forum. These pages are still accessible via archive.org,  a website that archives historic internet pages. Autoshite has had a look in, see here:
