    might aswell add mine to the pile

    last thursday some woman decided to take my car away from me

    i was coming along the road and seen 3 cars up ahead turning right across my half of the road - the 1st 2 made it by a few seconds and the 3rd person turned as i was right in front of her! straight into her car at 50mph (almost head on).

    front end is fecked - 1/4 of the front end has disappeared - no bodywork or what have you left. what was crushed in has destroyed the suspension and moving ability of the car as it had to be dragged (glass an all scraping along under the tyre) across the road to let traffic by. Headlights shattered n thrown about 10feet from car. sideskirt and front panel gone - blah blah blah

    good thing is all mods are covered and it wasnt my fault so my insurance wont sky rocket for future cover.

    car got taken away today to the approved garage used by the insurance company to be assessed next monday, by what the receptionist was saying - only got a courtesy car at 6:30 tonight - an 04 clio - do not feel safe in it at all

    just all about the waiting now to see what the assessors say

    Hey Ian

    Glad to hear your mods were insured. I was told you had went into the back of someone and i couldn't understand how the Astra could be written off for that, now it makes sense.

    Oh well, you are okay and that's the main thing. Think of the fun you will have with a new Astra project

    p.s. Check your hotmail
