    WTF!?! OTT to say the least

    Had a crash last night, Some young Kid pulled out infront of me. This is the damage to my car:



    (fixed it for you, nry)

    Other half complained of back ache so the paramedic's were called.

    This is the local newspaper report on the accident:

    http://www.edp24.co.uk/content/edp24...A06%3A18%3A270

    Now don't get wrong the emergancy services do a good job, but the firefighters turned up nearly an hour after the crash and were gone in less than 20mins. Police were there for over 2hours. The paper makes it sound like they were life savers in desperate situation, that was in fact a small shunt!

    bit of a nasty scrap if i say so myself, lucky that there was no major hurt... other than a stiff neck. It could have been alot worse. Glad your and the missus is ok and that the car's repairable. Are you going through insurance? and was the little scrote done for dangerous driving?

    Got to love the press for blowing a minor bump up to make it sound like someone had to be rescued from their car by the fire service. Oh well, thats the papers for you.

    Glad you are both ok.
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    yes going though his insurance. I think they'll right it off what with neading wing,bonnet,headlight,bumper and fog light. Missus is moaning like hell at the mo cause her neck hurts yet i'm fine. CPS might do him for careless driving.

    If you can, buy it back from the insurance, if they wright it off, I recon you could repair that yourself for next to nothing, with spare parts from a scrap yard. Since mk4's are common parts will be easy to come by and usually pretty cheap
