    Gate post Vs Astra

    I was pulling up into my mams driveway this eve and I forgot to turn my lights off full beam and kind of blinded myself off the whitewash walls,, anyways I ended up taking the corner a little bit too tight and funnily enough hit the side of my poor Astra off the gate post,, no damage to the post but my car had the black strip on the side ripped off in one piece (thank god I can put it back on) and a few scratches on the bottom section of the rear passenger panel and a dent in the wheel arch,, the only things that broke were the little blue clips that hold the strip on anyone know the part numbers for them?? would be great if yeas did,,

    damn, sorry to hear that Braenard (unlike the second poster apparently?? :P)

    Im not sure on the part numbers for those.I find if you just go into an Opel garage and go to the "parts" section and explain to them they can usually bring them up on the computer.

    Any pics!?

    Clips arent too expensive. As mentioned go into the dealer and they should be able to sort them for you.

    it doesnt look the worst, just the strip to replace really. The scuff you might be able to touch up.

    Looks like it was a low post.

    Similar happened my dad on a building site in his Passat one mornin, it was dark out and he backed into a really low bollard that was next to impossble to see :P

    Hope it gets sorted anyway
