    Hi, I have a 2007 Honda Accord I-VTEC EX Tourer auto and I love it. Just spent £500 on 75k service and MOT, and on the 29th December (it's 8th birthday - someone ran into the side whilst it was parked and ripped the nearside front, back doors and rear door panel and damaged the back bumper.

    Repair quote is about 3.5K. Chances are it'll be written off by my insurers.

    I would really like to keep it on the road as it seems impossible to replace. Looking for ideas.

    Welcome to Honda Karma Andrew :Hey:

    By the sounds of that quote it does sound like it will be written off.
    You will be likely to be to buy the car back off the insurance and then get it repaired yourself. It will then of course be categorised as CAT C or CAT D.

    Welcome to HondaKarma @Silly Moustache

    Hope you get your Accord sorted. Sounds like if the insurance make a reasonable offer you'll be looking for a replacement I'm afraid...
