    Don't black cars just totally pishhhh you off at times??

    Just forked out cash to have a few scratches sprayed over by chipsaway and i can't fault the guys work, its excellent!

    ...so i decided to give it a good wash a few days ago, almost felt like keeping it and continuing to mod it, when i swore i'd change it when i hit 21...

    ...thing is, its proppa ghey! everytime i look at the car, i see a scratch/ding that i never saw before...! black just shows it up so badly...i really hate it!! argggg...anybody else feel like this??

    haha...you are so right dude. they show up scratches and dents like crazy !! Try this one for size



    Its repaired now though


    Plus they never stay clean do they !....for that 10 minutes after you've washed it though, it is clearly the best colour out there, especially in pearlescent form

    funny you should say that, Ive just turned 21, and I had this dillema. I was so borderline, but i decided to get my vandalism repaired and I've sunk so much money into mine now, I felt I might as well keep modding it & looking smart

    my car got vandalised not long ago, that dent was huge all along the rear quarter looked worse in real life than that picture, plus the drivers door was done in by the handle......

    got the car back last friday £780 lighter.

    Not cheap, but they practically resprayed the right side of the car, I was very impressed with their work, and now i appreciate my car so much its looks all smart again with no dings

    haha. you sound exactly like me !! haha must be a 21 year old thing.

    I always look at it like this chap, Unless you've got a decent bit saved up to move onto that 200bhp+ level. Its not worth a swap! I love the cheap insurance and it doesnt cost a bomb to run. I would miss the cruise control steering wheel controls etc or anything completely different, aircon and little comforts, as i would have to go old school to get something quick I can afford ! maybe change if you can afford the extra cost.

    poor student you see

    I just use my old mans chipped Volvo S60 once in a while to keep my boredom at bay! get a volvo you would love it !! million times better than the astra

    well last week i hadw my front bumper and mirror caps resprayed, washed the car today and found no end of stone chips on the front, and a bloody scuff on the wing mirror.

    I dont know why i bother, things like that put me off trying to keep it a1 condition
