I love my Nissan. I mean OK, it’s brown. But inside it’s also leathery brown and fake-wooden brown and is comfy and I can see all edges of this Nissan X-Trail. Yeah, OK, I burn a hole into the Ozone layer with my 2000cc (2WD) and a guy with a 3000cc Cefiro (2WD) or a 300 hp BMW doesn’t… OK, I know that.
But now some old fa… I mean an elder gentleman in Taiwan, dressed in a way that would make a clochard (guy sleeping on the streets) in Paris feel some real social pressure by his comrades and with a bike that had its last service when Chiang Kai Shek was still in the spring of his love life, has smashed into my car at high velocity. A big bang, guy lying on the ground, talking a bit fuzzy afterwards. But I honestly think that was because his teeth never fitted right. So my car has a big dent in the tailgate and below some scratches. Would say the damage is 1000 Euro back home, maybe 20 000 NT here, not sure.
Then the guy offers us 1000NT, and as my wife told him No, 1000NT plus his motor cycle. Finally he agrees to pay 10.000 NT and we bring him home.
Well, in the end we left with 9000NT. OK, the people seemed poor and so wife said via police and court we might spend 1-3 years and finally get nothing.
As this may happen again, any suggestions what to do next time? Experience in similar situations?
