That one
Didn't know about that Bob, that's a lot more easier for the general populace to understand and stops people advertising Cat D's as only having "light" damage.

Well I suspect that car has slipped through and is a cat c.as the car is twisted,could it be repaired economically ,no,but many cat d cars can be repaired easily and make fine cheap vehicles,more importantly they nearly all have low mileage ,but it is a personal choice.

I didn't think it was about the amount of damage, it was the cost of the damage relative to the value of the car. - So a more expensive car requires more extensive damage to write it off.

You would have to be brave to fill that up with juice after being repaired !

No, but cars like this, once repaired, often end up being advertised as "stolen/recovered hence Cat D".
Stolen is stolen & Cat D is a car that has been damaged.

I got a funny feeling that it will be advertised later on in the year once it has been repaired as "Cat D, only needed a rear bumper".
