    What is the requirements for a cat D
    It definitely makes the car worth a lot less

    Re: Someone got a bargain

    Code:
    A Category C or D write-off is one that insurers consider unecomonical to repair but one that could, given enough time in the workshop, be repaired and returned to the road.

    the problem with cat D is that insurers consider it worthless, so if you had another accident in it it would be an instant write off. Even a chip in the windscreen could write it off. Some insurers will refuse to insure a cat d or will demand a full engeneers write-up like the RAC car check thing.

    Re: Someone got a bargain

    Way back then the car must have been worth around 30k
    i am surprised the insurance didnt shell out and get it repaired
    I know now they pay on percentage around 75% of the value of car now
    But 30k in value and damage 22k to repair,
    Sounds like a scam

    Either that or it suffered some serious damage to be beyond economical repair, which makes it hard to understand why it was only a cat D

    Re: Someone got a bargain

    Cat D will drop its worth significantly, as someone said the crash happened a while back when the value was far more...it must have been quite a shunt...

    Re: Someone got a bargain

    if it was a rear side impact and the subframe, rear arms, bushes, wheel, panels (Inner / outer incl boot) etc all needed replacing you would have been looking at least £10k in parts, put against that jigging, labour paintwork etc to BMW M standards, it is quite easily a CAT D. You have to remember when they they do an insurance estimate they quote for everything possibly linked to the accident.

    I would have bought this, it has obviously been repaired correctly so no worries, and i am sure the person that got it will get his £6k back when he sells it, so no-one loses.
