    Angry Partner had a smash in her Tigra

    Got the Tigra back from the body shop the day before PVS, it had the irmy front splitter fitted, rear Lumma splitter, rear lock and badge smothed over, bonnet fully resprayed with badge holes welded over, bumpers fully colour coded, gave it a good polish and then some daft cow whent and drove into the side of her 2 days ago! She was in the out side of the 2 lane carrage way and the other driver who was lost just pulled out from the inside lane into her Tigra without looking! She tried to blame it on Mandy my partner as she said she was undertaking..... howdo you undertake on the out side lane!!?? Anyway she has 2 witnesses on her side and the car is being repaired, i thought it was a right off with the amount of damage, all the near side is bashed in, alloys are recked so it needs a rear quarter, new door, 2 new alloys, possably a new wing, new n/s mirror, new side skirts and the steering needs to be re-checked, it was just repairable!
    Main thing is that Mandy was fine appart from a sore back and head where it bounced of the side window!

    At PVS





    And now

    She has now changed her story, she said she was moving very slowly to pull out of the inside lane and Mandy hit her and spun her round in the road Like you said Craig, its amazing what people try and do to get out of it! Apparently she is a reverend or something to do with the church, so you would expect them to br honest woundn`t you!

    Thats a damn shame, looks like it was a decent looking motor

    The marks on the car travel towards the front.. This indicated that "it was hit" an not the one that did the hitting if both vehicled were travelling in the same direction.....

    the marks go to the back

    which means his mrs was going faster that the car pulling into her lane

    which proves the third party werent paying attention and pulled into her lane

    if it had started at the back and went forward the door would have been pushed forward

    Well looks to me that the marks on the rear arch travel towards the front same with most of em on the door...

    Either way, if 2 other peeps saw it then she will be OK..

    Just found out we now only have one witness which was the lorry driver behind the accident, the other turned out to be an old work mate from a previous job and cannot be used, but the insurance company said one witness is more than enough! Just to clear things up, the Tigra was hit near the wing first as she pulled out, by the time it got to the rear quarter it was almost pushing the Tigra on an angle.

    Damnit, lucky they are repairing that really.

    I'm a believer in everyone makes mistakes and if someone owns up to what they have done then fine no problem, but when they try to get out of it and claim it wasn't their fault - that just makes my blood boil.
