    Old people!

    I had just left for the yarmouth meet earlier today, been on the road all of 2 ****ing mins when some old bloke hit my back end! Bloody ****, need a new rear bumper and taillight on drivers side, also some slight panel damage behind the bumper! Best bit was he tried to say it was my fault! I was at a junction and i had right of way but the tit pulled out into the back of me. got his details and a whitness.Never made it to the meet, was to p1ssed off! Good thing happen yesterday though, got a complete vectra sri with 2.5v6 52'000 miles on clock. will this fit in my mk3? i have air-con which i wanna keep, looks like a tight fit though?

    thanks people, all not bad though, the bloke had left a message on my answer phone today, hes got me a second hand replacement rear bumper in the correct colour! been round and looked at it, better nick than mine was before the hit. he reckons he'll have TWO secondhand tailights by thursday! Iv also had a mate in the acc/repair trade look at the panel damage, he reckons that its not worth doing anything with it, really hardly any damage at all and the boot shuts fine and everything.So i'll talk to the bloke who hit me and let him off if he agrees to pay the costs of having the bumper fitted and the panel treated incase of any cracked paint.Should be able to have my motor sorted by end of week, do you guys think this would be better than insurance claim etc?
