  • The police replied as follows:
    As they were not involved in any action, they cannot assist us in this case. We should contact our insurance company and provide them with the ladies details.
    So, in the whole, they were no help to us.
    Okay, the damage is thankfully settled by our own insurance company, but the elderly ladie's behaviour wasn't fair. I will certainly return to Scotland one day!
    Kind regards

  • Thanks to everyone answering.
    We called our insurance company, they first said "Wait for the answer from this lady". Few days later they called back and told us we had concluded a foreign claim insurance, which means they'd regulate the damage the same way as if the other party was insured at them.
    What the hell! Next day they sent a few forms to fill in. We described the accident and added some photos. After another call they sent a consultant, he estimated the damage around 3600€. In the afternoon the same day the company mailed and asked about outpayment or repair. We decided to let the money pay out as the coachbuilder can do the repair around 1000€ (that's legal in Germany).
    At one of the calls I asked the agent about the procedure against the elderly lady. He meant after finishing the complete case including the consultant's cost they'd give these informations to their partner insurance in Norwich which would try to make a claim against her. But he also said, there's not much hope to get the money back from her.
    Therefore I wrote another letter to the Police Scotland in Perth and described the accident, the behaviour of the lady, added some photos and asked them what to do now. I hope she'll get into trouble. She had told us to pay any bill "honestly".
    AND: I swore against my beloved wife to get back to Scotland sometime and knock on her door, if she was'nt honestly. I guess I'll do that. Sometime. She chose the wrong one for this game, as I'm friendly to honest people but unforgiving if not.
    Thank you all once more.
    Christof

    Hi friends,
    my wife and me went to Scotland at the end of May until June. We didn't use our MG but a Volkswagen campervan.
    On June the 2nd we were in Perth at Tesco for shopping. After leaving the superstore, an elderly lady backed with her Nissan Quashquai and bumped into the side of our campervan. We talked to her and asked for her insurance card, she had it at home (she said). We were uncertain to call the police, as no one was hurt and took photos of the situation and damage. She gave us her address and asked for sending the bill, she would pay it honestly without insurance.
    Few days later I went to a coachbuilder near our home here in Germany, he estimated the damage around 5000€ as the complete side panel has to be replaced.
    I wrote a letter to the lady, told her about that, asked her to contact her insurance company and sent it by registered mail. Also I contacted my own insurance company.
    The letter arrived more than two weeks ago without any response. I tried to call her a few times, but there's only the answerphone.
    The lady lives in Kinross-Shire. Anybody near this area? Is this behaviour common in the UK? Any advices or tips what to do next were appreciated very much.
    Thank you in advance
    Kind regards
    Christof

    The other day our MG was parked outside in the rain. After entering the carport I saw lots of water dropping out of the sills.
    How can this happen? Is there a specially designed connection leading the water down to the sills to create corrosion?
    Thank you in advance for any thoughts
    Regards
    Christof
