    You mean Cat C.

    I did warn you of this in your last thread...or was it the last but one thread on this topic.

    Is there a reason for separate threads on this?

    How far down the track are you with this? and what marker is against the Cat C is it beyond economical repair or damaged but repairable. Depends on how you did the deal with the insurance company to buy the car back as not all Cat C write offs need a VIC check after repair, I've now done 3 but the devil is in the detail of the deal with the insurance company :thumb:

    Anyway if you are too far down the track a VIC check is a simple procedure and if the car is repaired correctly you have no worries

    Have you started the repairs yet?

    Did you get that new wheel you ordered from MB? Was this to replace one that got damaged in your little mishap?

    All cat Cs need a vic check, they're not bothered about the repairs, it's just an identity check, does have to be roadworthy though.
