Idiot tried to squeeze through a non existant gap rather than wait a minute for a delivery van to move and hit my rear driver arch while I was stationary.
Had to report to police as he failed to stop etc but have on board front and rear cctv so have all his details etc and they are dealing with that side of things including investigating if he did it deliberately after a "verbal discussion" in which he was venting at me after driving head on towards, then right up next to me, that I should let him through , on my side of the road, as he is a taxi ...I told him to calm down, he had an elderly passenger and if he carried on id have to report to his taxi company, He said "do it then ", and drove on when the van blocking him moved, hitting me and near hitting the van behind.
Id post the video but its going to be used as evidence if needed so cant at the moment... maybe after all sorted. Its certainly paid for itself with this incident alone - hd res of his licence plate and taxi details.
My insurance company legal team are gonna make a claim direct against his, so my insurance isnt affected but asked me to get 2 quotes myself to put forward as part of claim for losses.
From the pics below, what should the companies be saying needs done - filler/ respray, replacement etc ?
I think new clips needed for bumper if underside ones still intact and I guess the bumper insert can be replaced for same cost as respraying...
Gonna take it round a few places tomorrow inc bmw dealer, but just thought id get some advice from peeps here.
