    Default Little accident

    Hi there not been on in ages but what a change........

    Had 2 accidents on my car as a result I need a new drivers wingmirror 3.2v6 signum design.

    And a complete front bumper.........

    The wing mirror Im sure u can guess what happened but the bumper Oh dear.
    I wished I had taken some pics because looking back at it now it was funny not for the said third party.....

    Giving it some stick over taking another car at 6am in the morning I pulled back into my lane along a country road to hear a bang and a puff of feathers in my head lights thinking that will be a respray or a cracked bumper......

    Nothing prepared me for what I found the pheasant had punched a whole the size of a football through my bumper right above my passanger foglight as there is no support bar there it just broke it..... The bird was still impaled in the front of the car.......

    So if you fancy pheasant soup all you will need is a 3.2V6 a country road and a new bumper to replace the old one

    The passanger foglight is loose and the casing is cracked but not sure if when i get new bumper it will be okay. I have tried scrap yards but not had any joy yet.....

    I tried my local vauxhall but they were not any use said that my mirror was 110 quid alone as it was anti-dazzle but i havnt noticed that it is, my rear view is but dont think my mirrors are...........

    Blimey bud. Most people go out with a Shotgun!

    A mate of mine had a pheasant hit the windscreen. it went right throught the car and through the back window. Quite a mess!.

    There was an anti dazle mirror on Ebay over the weekend.

    The bumpers turn up on ebay quite often too.

    I was driving at around 70 on a country road over Notts way somewhere when a pheasant jumped out of the hedge in front of me ! It went straight up in the air, fortunately there was no damage just some feathers in the lower grill. I was looking in my mirror to see where it landed but I never saw it ! It probably got roasted on re-entry

    Reminds me of that Rambo p**s take film where the guy fires a chicken with a bow (Anyone know ? I think Emilio Estafez was in it ).
