VPN's (legitimate business ones) are the other thing thats not always stable from what ive heard....but dont think that applies to you....and he is launching more all the time so may improve yet.

I know of one or 2 in rurul locations...been underwhelmed, however neither over technical.

I have heard it works better for general net access than constant streams like streaming etc,  So review your needs.

Yes understand...If its important, it will be done right.
Crash isnt 'really' the word for this, think hitting a reasonable kerb at 40 head on.
Wheels are dented, will obvs write the tyres off after that too, rears seem fine.
Rad damage is just cos the bottom of the bumper has been bent up and into it.  doubt the aircon has survived, but this only goes 2 miles at a time...and about 20 miles a week.
lights have 2 points i need to repair, be it glue, and some reinforcement, should be fine.
Cleared codes, topped it up, doesnt leak much, so road tested it and it drives fine, codes appear to be unfeasible differing wheel speeds for a stationary car.
Will get a rad, bumper, the 2 bits of arch liner that are below the real arch liner (wheelhouse protector maybe?)
Will get someone else to check over the suspension too when i get the alingnment checked.

Headlights can be had for 30ish if needed, but am trying to keep the costs down as much as possible.
Expensive lesson for him as it is.
Crashbar not needed, not been touched.  its kerb / low bush damage.

Had a look, not tooooo bad.

Bumper as obviously known.
New rad needed, bumper smashed into it.
Wheel arch liners, I think, got some bits look like they should fit there
Exhaust grazed through, think one of those repair kits will work here for the moment.
Heatshields bent a bit, roughly straighted them.
Both headlights need bottom clip gluing on.
Drivers wheel a little buckled, will swap with the spare for now.
Started it on stands with no bumper to have a look, drivers side wheel was sluggish to start moving, just jerked slowly initially. Next start it worked fine, so hope that ok.  ABS light on, not read the codes yet.

So, Shall get a rad and fit that, clamp the exhast, swap the wheel with the spare and give it a road test, assuming all ok will sort an alignment check after i pick up the liners and bumper and glue the lights.

And get them to set the geometry to WIM settings rather than standard Vauxhall settings.

Used to get Tony at WIM to do the settings. Is he still there?

Tony passed away about 18 months ago, WIM taken over by protyre and no longer has a reputation that makes you want to visit.  I beleive one of those he trained is bookable not far away from there, can find the details easily enough if you want.
