A couple of young lads across the road from me seen me trying to get out from behind the bank of snow thanks to the plough, so they kindly offered assistance which i was onl;y to happy to accept as i had been trying for 15 min's already, Anyway io jumps into car puts in first an trie to get rolling the 2 young lads go to push the car and i hear a bang so i go to see what the problem was to my horror they had ripped the rear spoiler clean of the car! i didnt go nuts i mean how could i they were only trying to help
