    Default NOT Happy

    Well thats the vec not so mint now
    Coming home from work, got into my street and one side of the road is full with parked cars. so i was driving up the correct side of the road when this old dear came towards me, i thought she was going to pull into a gap to let me past.
    No the daft old bat decides to carry on as though she haddnt seen me, had to give it a bit of throttle to try and get into a gap before she hit me head on, trouble was she was that close to my front end i had to try and pull into half a cars gap so she could go past, she didnt leave me enough room and i had to hit a corsa which dragged all down the side of my car.
    Then she just drove off quick as poss, it all happened that quick i didnt even know what type of car she was driving never mind getting her reg plate and she was out of sight in seconds.
    Lucky ive not damaged the corsa but it screwed one side of my car up
    It left a mark all the way down my car but that has polished off but where the bump strips are on the doors below that has now all become rippled with dents, no scratch though and it has pushed my rear arch in as well.
    ....im hoping it can be pushed out or something otherwise its going to be an expensive fix.
    Pictures as promised, last picture shows the damage at worse glance, sorry about quality not the best person to take pictures.

    Good question, it wasn't that much and I never got the full cash off the woman who drove down the side of it around £150-£200 but I don't think they were a very good bodyshop lol as I'm still on the look out for a good one

    Cheers dude, a dent place has just said he can get it straight for £100 plus vat seems fair price to me. Would rather have it straightened than filled and sprayed.

    I know what you mean, price seems fair to me too, as long as they do a good job
