Hi guys thanks for all the positive comments, you are all absolutely correct the main thing was no one was seriously hurt, by the way she was driving a beetle cabriolet and that wasn't even a write off,they are going to put it back on the road,may be it was the angle that I hit her as I did try to swerve to the left thats why the right corner took most of the impact. I have been really lucky and fount a replacement, another R with almost the identical spec-2019 and only 900 miles on the clock. Insurance company were really great,paid out more than I was expecting and our local jaguar dealer gave me a really good deal, so every cloud has a silver lining......thanks again guys will post some pics a little later on

Good to hear a positive and rapid resolution for you.

So is that her Beetle behind your car in the photo? If so it does look remarkably straight, especially for a convertible in such a coming together.

Nice one Rob.

So you've now got an almost brand new car with presumably some warranty... it's a later MY so hopefully very few Jaguar gremlins too.

Hopefully you'll look after this one! 😜

That’s a good result after what must have been a nasty experience. Can I ask who the insurance company is?

We feel very lucky with the way things have turned out,and yes that is her beetle in the back ground and I was amazed that it is being put back on the road,they reckoned that there is about £12000 worth of damage.With regards to the insurance we used a local broker but the company itself is NFU Mutual,they were really great to deal with,I was expecting real problems and weeks of negotiating to get a fair pay out but nothing could be further from the truth. We will definitely look after her,spent 2 days detailing her and she looks stunning,but then again the old car was also immaculate until that fateful day. Will post some pics soon, Thanks again guys!!!!!!!

+1 for NFU Mutual, its who I use, lots of questions before getting my quote because of Mods to the Evoque, but you know if they insure you they will cover you properly.

Ouch that is a lot of damage, glad all were ok!
