Well I have bad news for my Micra and I'm not sure what to do
When my mum reverse crashed my car into next doors caravan attachment on their car, I thought it had just cracked the bumper, and all that would need doing is that replacing.
Turns out the damage is far worse, even though she wasn't going all that fast.
The boot doesn't close properly because she has actually jutted in the back end completley, the metal and everything.
When I took it to get looked at, he couldn't even remove the spare wheel without a lot of force because the metal is crumpled in so much, so that explains why the boot wouldn't open/shut properly! The damage was below where I could see from the main boot compartment.
Damages? Were talking £550 (if the back/floor panel is knocked back into place) -£750 (if I get a new back/floor panel)
I don't know what to do now
My dad says he'll go halves with the £550 because she caused it, but it'd be coming out of his pension money, and I don't honestly know if I can do that.
I only paid £1200 for the car 2 years ago almost, in the first place, but the engine has only done 12500 miles. Its a good runner.
But with that, and the service it needs doing on the gear stick/gears, etc, its going to cost a lot more than I initially thought.
Thanks about the induction kit information. I just really like that sound it made when I took off the filter and gave it a bit of gas. I could essentially buy a cone filter and put it in the back box and gain the same kind of sound without the price though.
Plus I guess it depends where the filter is getting its air from/where its placed.
But forget about the mods for the minute... I just don't know what to do to get my car good, stock
