Got it back on Friday with all jobs completed. The hub has been replaced along with the other parts needed.

It still had a bit of vibration in the steering but this has been sorted with getting the wheels balanced. It was at this point that it was also noted that the fns wheel was buckled. Got one on order from ebay so that should be the end of the teething problems. From the wheel buckle I'm pretty sure we can put the issues down to a very large pothole or similar and not a collision accident.

The car is currently in my local garage getting a full service and tracking done so by the end of the week it should all be sorted and how it should have been in the first place. They're going to let me know if all the jobs had been done.

That must be a relief!
I suspect the caliper mounting lug is more likely to have been damaged from something sticking up rather than a pothole. Straddling a kerb could get the geometry right to impact the lug - good reason to avoid parking half on, half off pavements.
