I don't know how the insurance works over there, but when I was rear-ended in 
NY, the insurace company only paid half of what the estimates were... Their 
justification was that because the car was so old (10+ years) they didn't 
need to put new parts on it... they have a whole database of junkyards with 
used parts that they will refurbish for your car...

Good Luck,
