Thanks for all the kind words guys.
I really don't want it written off as I've just spent £1400 on it having a Torque Converter fitted, I know it's mechanically good, and of course what they'd give me for it will only cover the cost of a similar age one that I could spend thousands getting to the same mechanical condition.
Update as of this morning.
The body shop canít see it until tomorrow morning.
Privilege Have confirmed that:
If the car is written off as a Cat C or D, I will get the opportunity to purchase it back.
The claim is already in the hands of their recovery team as it looks like the complete cost will be recovered from the other insurers.
This may take a couple of weeks to confirm though.
My renewal premium will not be affected at all if it is agreed that it was not my fault.
The cost of a hire car will not be considered as part of the repair cost when considering if the car is economical to repair.
As I have the receipt for the Torque Converter being fitted so recently I can submit it as evidence if I want to dispute the value of the car.
So, wait and see really.
