Had my first real accident today... car is damaged by kinda drivable with a slight vibration from the front wheel that took most of the impact. Door, mirror, sill are all scraped but repairable, wing is toast, bumper is a little loose and the wheel is going to need a refurb (luckily not one of the two I refurbished last month)... what damage is done underneath is at present unknown, but it ripped the undertray in half and left it dragging and there's other stuff on the underside that could have been damaged. That said, I was able to drive it the 6 miles home albeit a lot slower that usual. Kept it to no more than 45mph even on 60-70mph roads... thankfully there's a few villages and some dual carriageways, so I wasn't holding up traffic. Thankfully no visible injuries at the time, although I am currently suffering from some pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back.. my head was thrown side to side in the impact... the damage looks minimal to mine, the BMW that hit me came off far, far worse... I took some pics of that if you want to see them. Fault wise is unclear for certain... poor road markings and a design layout that's different to every normal dual carriageway roundabout that I've ever drive round before... and I come from Milton Keynes so that's hundreds of the feckers driven around tens of thousands of times over 26yrs of driving. Normally, every other roundabout I've been on that has 3 lanes going onto the roundabout from a dual carriageway onto other dual carriageways is as follows. Left lane, Left turn or straight on Middle lane, straight on Right lane, Right turn. I was in the left lane going straight on... the BMW was behind me and accelerated to go past me 'On the roundabout' and turn left... in MK that would have been clearly his fault and dangerous driving... but this is some new road layout with new roads being built and inadequate signage... the left and middle lanes are apparently for turning left only. But the only markings that appear to show this are the ones 3ft from entering the roundabout itself and a drivers eyes should be looking out for oncoming traffic not staring at the road... and it's one of those junctions where 2 lanes go into three without warning 10ft from where you stop. It's a terrible junction... So to me it's 50/50, me for not knowing the layout of a new road I've never driven before and him for driving like a twonk and trying to overtake around the outside of another car on a roundabout... I can say for certain that I wasn't indicating to turn left and he was behind in the same lane (at least 10-15 meters back according to my mirrors) as we came up to the roundabout... So to get alongside me means he floored it. My dash cam shows everything, but only in front, and he was behind and hit me from the side... But you can see how close I can to hitting a sign post on the central res of the dual carriageway. In fact it appears to have scraped the mirror as there's a big scrape on the outside edge/ It's all down to the insurance now... car is valued at around 1800-2000, so providing the repair bill isn't going to be more than around a grand I'm hoping it can be repaired. I'm not likely to find another one of these for the money I paid, or will get from the insurance. If they write it off... after excess I'll be lucky to come out with between £1600-1800. Where am I going to find a 10yr old CTDI Tourer EX for that money... I know mine is currently now 12yrs old, but it was 10 when I bought it and I don't see the point in trying to get another PFL model that's only going to last a year or two. Might as well get one that will see me through at least 3 or 4yrs like this one would do (if repaired). Buy back may also be possible providing I can get it cheap enough... door, sill, mirror can be fettled and repainted... new wing and bumper if lucky can be found second hand for a sensible price... it all depends on damage behind the wing and underneath the car. If suspension or steering needs repairing... probably not worth it... and the hunt starts for a replacement. In that case hoping I can find a 2006 or 2007 facelift tourer EX for the same as I paid for this one.... and this one was almost mint for £1650... albeit with 156k on the clock. Not worried about high miles if single owner and full service history like this one had. Call the insurance in the morning, find out about a courtesy car and get it assessed for repair or write off... Also need to see the doctor as this eveing I'm feeling pain in my neck, upper back and shoulders from my head being thrown side to side.
