    Crashed Rob's old astra!!

    Right now i've already apologised to Rob for so please don't hate me people.

    Was driving down the country lanes by me on Sunday night and came round a blind bend, someone else was coming the same way and was too far over onto my side of the road. So to try and avoid them i moved over, in doing this i mounted the muddy bank to the side of me and sent the astra into a slide. To try and stop it i put the brakes on and turned the other way (Stupid thing to do i know but i paniked!) this sent the car sideways the other direction and i bounced of the trees on the other side if the road. The car spun round twice and i ended up in a ditch nose first!

    Please don't hate me as it'll be repaired soon and back to what it looked like before if not better!

    No more Astra..........Now another German!

    The main point is that your ok and its a bonus that the car is repairable!

    I actually can't believe there is so little damage after hitting a tree, spinning twice and ending up in a ditch!

    How long do you think it will be before the car is back to it's former glory?

    I've had the body shop out who did my last car to have a look and as long as i can get the kit and stuff it'll prob only take a few weeks to get everything sorted. BUT....the steering rack is bent, the brakes have stopped working, the front tyre has come off the rim so not sure if i'll need a new alloy and one of the shocks on the back has gone.

    ahhh I see, so its quite all cosmetic! but in the end steering racks, brakes, alloys and shocks can all be replaced. You can't be.

    Where you actually hurt at all?

    Are you going to be footing the bill for this?

    I've got a bit of whiplash and was in agony on Monday and Tuesday but feeling much better now thanks.

    I've also decided to pay the bill as the insurace will rape me and i know they won't insure me next year on the same car!

    I'm sooooo gutted! i honestly nearly

    I dread to think how Rob feels for me doing this to his baby!

    it's fixable. I'm surprised at how little damage there is after hitting a tree :|

    Atleast you're OK, it's fixable but will take time and effort to get it done.
