    Default some pleb scraped my mirror at weekend, trying to park...

    look at the size of the gap between me and the mini...

    You'd struggle to get a noddy car in there, this fool tries reversing his Lexus 450 in!

    Luckily I was sat in the car at the time when he stripped paint if my wing mirror - because the guy didnt realise and drove off and parked somewhere else!

    Anyway, got his details, he wants to pay for the damage rather than using insurance... Been quoted £72. That'll do nicely, £10 touch up kit from Halfords and £62 towards my remap!

    That's because nothing did happen, in her head.

    Watched a similarly incompetent driver yesterday, posted and got told I have way too much time on my hands. If my car had been in the road instead of on my patio (parking very tight here) I may have been in same position - come to think of it, a new back bumper would be nice....at least you got the details.

    got two quotes from two local repairers for the work...
    Both were £72 inc VAT to prime, paint and bake etc...

    I text the guy saying its £72 but as I have to leave it with them, I'll have to get a taxi home, and a taxi back to collect it, so I want £86.

    The came back saying thats ridiculous (does seem steep I admit, but I want a proper job, not some back street garage doing it) and that he'll give me £50. I was tempted to take it, touch it up for a tenner and pocket £40 but I decided against it and reported it to his insurance company today.

    What a plonker, for the sake of £36 he's going to have a claim on his policy (if he declares it!) for the next few years which will cost him a lot more!
