    Default Im not having a good start to the year!

    I went out to my car on new years day and found that someone has keyed the driver side from the headlamp to the tail light. I phoned the police and they said that another 4 cars have had it done on the same street. Obviously there was nothing they could do as there were no witnesses.

    Sorry to hear this Welshy.

    My neighbour stopped by yesterday to let me know that someone threw a plantpot over his bonnet causing several deep scratches.

    What goes through these peoples minds, I have no idea. !!

    The VXRD got scratched earlier this year... and my old Vectra SXi got scratched also....

    This really makes my blood boil.

    I wish there was some way (CSI territory) that the person could be linked to the crime. I hope I am never in the position where I have a nice car and someone who stays nearby can repeatedly damage it (even after it has been repaired).

    Hope you get it sorted Welshy (and Spoons)

    If only you could set this up to automatically work if someone starts to scratch the side of your car (some changes to the law would also be required).

    Identification would be easy – just look for a person with no eyebrows who is shrink-wrapped in a hoody

    P.S. Have not looked at any other info on the site (honest) but looking at the titles there may be some adult content.

    I've just received a phone call from my local bodyshop, they said that they estimate the cost to be around £600 inc vat.

    The car is getting done in a couple of weeks.
