    Scratches........

    Car went in thursday to have squib and rear lights changed under warranty, thought nothing of it when car came back. ive been off work a few days ill so car hasnt been driven anywhere, come to wash it sunday and i find this

    pic from the day before



    hmmmm









    So to say i went balistic is an understatement called guy who took the car and we've known him for years and he assured me that no one else had access to my keys while it was at vauxhalls, and that if he would have known he had done it he would have informed me and not tried to hide it, i explained that car was spot less when he took it ( even have pics from the day before ) and there wasnt a mark on it. He has said that he belives that i have not done it and he really cant remember catching anything but he will take it to vauxhalls and get it all sorted for me and appologies if he did

    If i had done it, it would have been my own stupidity and then the sprayer i know would fix/spray it for nothing, but its the fact i know it wasnt me and therefore i should not be the one to have to sort it. So it goes in tomorrow to be sorted.

    looks like a fair knock Tom especially as the splitter is out of line and popped off. However it is easy to do and not notice on these things I did it to the Mk4 golf cleaned it a couple of days before hand drove and noticed the paint missing.

    At least he is sorting it out for you, but its added hassle and your first war wound on the T8

    Problem is the splitters move so you can catch something and not even feel it when manouvering round the workshop etc.
