It costed my friend 15k and the total cost was 50k... insurance paid 35k...
Good that your friend has got his car back. Not that this matters now, but footing in 15 grand for repair for a 1 year old car amounts to 30% depreciation. Isn't that too much or overcharging? I was under the impression that depreciation each year is 15%? I could be wrong though, or simply.... confused. Either way, guru's please clarify.

Using professional equipment, the car can be pulled and then the new crossmember is fitted. ensure a check is done after all chassis parts are refitted as when the car is pulled into shape and some parts might have been damaged but it may not be clear on initial estimation.

It happened on an aquaintance's car, but once repaired, it is as good as new
