    Default Gutted. Lost Front Grill.

    Was on the a14... And thought my. Front splitter had come off and somehow hit windscreen...

    Turns out it was my chrome v..

    ABSOLUTELY raging... Mustn't have put it back on properly... But have travelled over 150miles since weekend when I cleaned it and wrapped.... Oh well black / colour code time.

    Thats nasty and bad luck. Were you able to recover it, I'm guessing not. Is your windscreen ok?

    I literally was like swearing out loud thinking it was a bird/seagull at first... Because of the grill shape haha

    Windscreen is fine..

    But just absolutely gutted... And yes im glad it wasn't the splitter. Way more expensive lol
