    Gutted.........

    On the way home from work call of nature grabbed me by the bollocks and demanded I stopped the car, stopped on th A1 services about ten miles from home, parked in the fourcourt of the petrol station and ran for a piss, got back to the car fired it up and there was a deep kerb at the side of me, reversed straight and thought i was clear but caught it at the last minute when i started to turn, Its put a deep scuff into irmy splitter and cracked the paint alway down where it joins to the main bumper, def a respray job.

    Just had a complete re-spray as well, could strangle myself.

    I feel you pain my friend.

    I caught my irmy splitter whilst reversing out of a parking bay last night and now my front bumper has popped off on the passenger side.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Update on this...

    car is booked in thursday to have it sorted, unfortuantely i've split one of my arch linings when i clipped the kerb.. also passenger side one is a little worn so i'm going to replace them both.

    One of lads at work has a mk4 hatch and they look totally different, on the coupe there is a black lip which pertrudes onto the edge of the arch.

    Question is, do mk4 hatch fit coupe and does anyone have any idea for cost for the pair?

    Thanks
