    Hi there,

    I have a 316i 2009 model and have hit my drivers side door on a bollard. I have been told I will most probably need a new door, can anyone tell me of anywhere I can get one in Glasgow or even Scotland?

    Thanks

    Have you not tried claiming on your insurance? It may be cheaper to pay the excess than paying the cost of having a new door fitted. There could also be warranty issues involved if not done correctly.

    Yes sorry it is a 116, and my no claims is not protected so my husband would like to get it done without the insurance. We have been quoted £250 for the work plus the price of a new door which I understand can range but if bought straight from BMW it would be around £350.

    Thank you for your help

    Regards
