    why not to take the car to work:(

    at work someone decided to have a bad driving day and took it out on my coupe
    damage aint to bad but its expensive £3-400 for a new bumper and then painting might have to have the rear quaters blended
    heres the pics of the van that hit me




    and then my car




    now i could have got a lorrry down the road he got his van down
    cant complain as they are sorting out the cost of repairs but its a pain as now i have to sort it out but on the bright side i am getting a new bumper and rid of the horrible mark on the old ond

    Hardest part will be to match the silver.

    Atleast he didnt just drive off and leave you to pay for it out of your pocket.

    fair play to the van driver for being honest. Its increasingly apparant that today, most ppl will just scupper and leave it to the owner to deal with.

    On the bright side, at least there is no metal damage. Not surprised about the cost of a new bumper from Vaux, but if its thru insurance, wont they replace with genuine factory parts anyway, and on the van drivers insurance of course?

    By the way I like your wheels
