Repair M or buy a new camera

I have now established that my M240 will need to be refurbished after me dropping it onto a concrete pavement!!!!

So do I go ahead and sent it in for refurbishment or buy another used Leica?

I am covered for insurance but I will need to get a quote for repair to repair the damage I would need the following:

1. Re-alignment of RF focus

2. Replacement of rear screen (scratched)

3. Replacement of the top plate.

4. Replacement of bottom plate.

Assuming nothing else is found that would put it back to its original condition, having only had it for 2 days before I dropped it and having to pay an excess of £350 on my policy is it possible the insurance company may feels its beyond economical repair?

If so then an M10 could be an option.

I paid £2400 for the camera 2 weeks ago.

Would this need to go back to Germany of can it be done at a Leica dealer?

Cheers

Leica M10
