    Default Panel Beater Help

    My gf's 306 just had an accident rear ending someone

    Advertisement


    her front bumper at the bottom is broken and the bonnet is bent, I managed to put the radiator back into the clips but one is still out of alignment. And closing the bonnet needs a bit of an effort.

    Does anyone know which shop is good for repairing the 306 in Melbourne ? She's only got 3rd party insurance so she has to payt everything out of her pocket and that's going to be apinful and we're trying to keep the cost down (within reasons).

    Would Alpin Affaires do the job well ?? Any other suggestions ??

    Thanks,
    Jason

    My dad wrecked the left hand side spoiler on the 306, and he took it Graeme Cuthbert in Box Hill, he did a really good job, but i cant remember whether he was pricey or not.

    Anyway heres the details if you want to give him a call

    BOX HILL 3128
    Telephone (03) 9890 7227

    Thanks Simon.

    Yeah, I go to Graeme Cuthbert too when I had my accidents and they did a fantastic job. But it will be pretty dear for my girlfriend to go as I looked at my invoices from them they are pretty expensive. Bummer

    Forgot to mention the reason of the cost, she has to pay $1000 excess on top of her repairs for the 3rd party insurance for the other car's damage...but i doubt if it'll be close to that if the other car do private repairs instead of going through insurance.

    Bad luck about the accident.

    I haven't had my Frenchy repaired there, but know a person who had some rear end work on a A6 and a fellow RSC owner got his whole front end fixed up by them and was very, very, happy with the work. It is a father and son team and even though the work was done through insurance, I don't think their prices would be incredibly high, especially for the quality of work. But , most likely too much for a 306.

    Thanks guys. We took the car to APS. Brad the owner is very nice, he helped us to put the clips back on the radiator and now it's aligned properly, and he managed to push the bonnet back out so we can open and close it as usual. The only damage we need to fix is to iron out those dents.

    On the other hand Graeme Cuthbert (which we visited before APS) quoted us $900 and just looked at the car.
