stupid i know.
I dont want to claim my insurance as my premiums for the following year will be too high.
Had a quote to replace the front bumper, front side panel and the door panel and other bits and bobs for £1000 and its costing another £1000 for paint and labour.
I think the garage is goin to get the parts from Mazda.
I am wondering does any one know where to get cheaper parts?
Not to be a dick, but you didn't wreck because you had traction control off- you wrecked because you don't know how to properly drive a RWD car. Don't blame the technology... we've been driving RWD cars for a looong time without traction and stability control systems. It really makes me worry these technologies are breeding a generation of kids that can't drive...
