    Unhappy What a day! Great start followed by an absolute disaster!!

    Started off fine, met a guy off here to go swap alloys Got 3 of my new GSI Snowflakes on Then disaster struck... I was lowering the car after we fitted the final wheel and I popped the bloody thing!

    So we had to jack it up, take the snowflake off and put my spare on.

    Job done, driving home on the motorway...and one of my lovely Reiger Sideskirts came off!!! Bloody thing just ripped right off

    So, From the passenger side, it looks great But from the drivers side, not so good.... Ill let the pics do the explaining from here on out.

    They say things happen in three's, well my g/f is about to take a pregnancy test because we think she might be pregnant, and she just had an implant put in less than a month ago!!!

    Does that count as a third thing?



    Yum yum yum



    Bad times

    Soo, does anyone have some coupse/GSI skirts they wana let me take off their hands?

    Had to drive the wheel up onto a jack to get enough clearence to get the trolly jack under the car, lowered the car back down so the tyre was resting on the jack and it popped it on a sharp edge, lesson learned, always use a brick.

    What color, condition, and how much. You're only 2 hours from me which isnt so bad, or I could send you the cash on top to post them.
