    Angry Birds....birds....birds....

    Some kind of bloody bird ran out in front of me this morning on the A1 on the way to work.... hit it about 75mph and here's the damage...



    Might not be able to make it to Regal now, everything seems to be conspiring against us going..

    Sorry to see that mate, what's the damage for a replacement?

    Mine's in getting the turbo replaced at the moment, so it's not a good season for the 888s

    That's Shevs front bumper........

    I assume it'll be a repair, not a new bumper due to cost.

    Still not nice, with all the hastle in getting it sorted.

    If that's the only thing stopping you. Get down to regals anyway.

    I'm having a bad day too.

    £320 notes for the splitter.
    £200 (est.) for fitting/painting (inc front bumper)

    So it was your turbo on it's way out then viio?

    Yeah thought about swapping them over - Ive got my MOT due as well next week, so with this it'll be a fail I'd have thought.

    Problem is time - gotta whiz down to Notts this evening to pick up a few bits, then back (around 8ish) - change bumpers over (NOT easy), fit other bits, then clean the damn thing ...... then get up early in morning!

    i can't see why it would fail an MOT as long as the whole bumper is still sucure it should be fine.

    your fog lights are still intacked so you should be fine.

    gutted for you tho mate. you and shev don't have much luck with your front splitters do you.
