Who Got Hailed?


Recommended Posts

just got back from the 'just car' assement place in the city

my gtr has been writen off - the whole process tool less than 10 minutes, even got a cabcharge for the ride back to work.

They had a 'Pickles auction' sticker on that car before I could say a word, and by the time I got into the taxi the car was already gone.

yeah me too. If you don't want to claim you don't have to, that's why it's called an assessment, you are still entitled to not go ahead with a claim if you don't want to. I'd have fought that one and not given them the keys. You still own the car man, you are not leasing it from Insurance company. Sounds a bit suss to me.

Oh yeah, I wanna see damage pics too! 10 pages now and all we've seen is text and a few ice balls.... hehehehehe balls

i was thinkn of swapping the rims over for cheap ones, taking out the dvd player and exhaust then putting the original back on before an inspection. They aren't keeping my good stuff!

no no nothing doggy, maybe i worded that a bit wrong.

The choice was I go ahead and claim the insurance or not.

If I went ahead with the claim - it would be a write off

from then I had 2 choices:

a. settle everything now, leave the car, sign the paperwork and money would be in the bank in aprox 48 hrs

b. return the car within 48hrs and settle everything then

I had already ripped everything out, so I didn't see any point in hanging on the car any longer.

Since I had agreed value I got a good deal out of it.

I was just surprised at how quickly the process went.

This is so sad, it's like a war. People losing their loved ones to the storm - I want to claim on insurance and I fear my car would be writable offable but I think I like it too much to do that. Not only, but I don't think I'll find another one for the same price in the condition that I got this one in.

I got quotes of around $5K so mine wont get written off or repaired as my excess is $3K :D

Can you claim and get the cash instead of repairing it with Just Car?

Nope, I don't think so. Not unless you're good friends with a panelbeater and plan on avoiding Just Car seeing your unrepaired vehicle for the rest of it's insured life. If it's a write off you can buy back the wreck with the money they pay you out and keep the difference.

So I got my car assessed at Just Cars this morning and they are willing to repair it.

They want the roof and boot lid repaired by The Dent Maestro Paintless Dent Removal. (Recommended by Just Cars)

Roof has 3 dents and the boot has 1.

They say it would take about 5 days but they have been pretty quick with all the cars and they said 3 days should do it.

Bonnet and 2 front guards would have to goto the panel beater.

But panel beater won't touch my car until The Dent Maestro Paintless Dent Removal have removed the dents 1st and that is booked in earliest on the 28th April 2010.

So just goto wait.

Saw about a total of about 4 to 5 Skyline R33's today at the assessment.

    • Thank you for sharing your experiences. I believe your post means nothing to anyone or any of the businesses you mentioned. It’s probably better we all thank these businesses for providing us with products and solutions that you see nowhere else in the world. They work hard to provide us with those solutions, don’t shit on it. A business like xanavi probably has the right to charge 1100 USD for an SD card upgrade for CarPlay on the GTR, better than going to Nissan to be charged 4000+ to just get done local maps update right? Considering the car is 200-700k, I think it’s all due.  How did you save someone 1000 dollars by linking the SD card upgrade and then linking an irrelevant product that they got the idea from? You’re misleading people. You’re then making someone think that the box does the job? You idiot.   About the lesser knowns, what makes you so sure that those businesses people aren’t appealing to customers in their location/market? (AUmark) You seem to not only have a problem with miscommunication but also not being able to read. I just jumped on nifty city’s website and it’s in your local currency, where did you get 1100 USD from? It says 699 USD, or 1000 AU (your currency). They also run discounts? Your peripherals need improvement.   Grom v line has been on the game for longer than you’ve had interest in the so called “Japanese market” that you know so much of.    This post is not really helpful to anyone in the market looking to buy a unit. Let people run their business and customers to decide for themselves.   Regards, An interested customer.   
    • Small addition to my post above. This morning I noticed my door ajar light was turning on occasionally when it shouldn't. I had a stray 8vdc being fed back from ground side with key out. After taking a closer look at the original cluster, I noticed nissan was actually aware of this as they added a diode. I tossed in a 1N4007 and it's resolved. 
    • New coolant overflow for the r32.the good old boys in blue that let me rip around with a 4” exhaust no issues at all. We got it good over here like that. 
    • Hey Ben those are some extremely wicked numbers for 22psi and the kill tune on e85 at 800 probably feels great. What are running for a gearbox? nice work mate glad to see the blue is working proper. Send me your base timing map when you get a chance I want to see how cranked up you got it over 16 psi, cheers
    • The little 10mm bolts are holding for dear life. 30 psi on ethanol/meth injection and things are feeling fricken spicy now! I hope the boost gods are with me at this power level feels like my face is going to the back of my head now.
