    Default We think Vectras can be expensive.....

    .... Chatting to my neighbour this afternoon, whilst washing the VXRD, yes it was blowing a gail, but needs must...

    ... anyway, he was telling me how someone had scratched his BMW all down the side, and across the bonnet, and slashed a 9 inch gash in his convertible hood....

    .... and then went on to say.... "Guess how much I've been quoted for a repair"....


    .....Dunno, I said.......

    My neighbour had his ML 430 done back in 2000 when he was seeing a girl he maybe shouldn't have been... every panel & the big AMG wheels had paint stripper of some kind thrown on it. £8k's worth of damage. Our new Astra was parked right next to it, but luckily escaped unscathed.

    The "guilty party" was tracked down by the owner (dodgy guy anyhow) and paid up, in cash. Then the owner put the car through on his own insurance... and funded some of his habits on the £8k he pocketed.

    We moved after that.

    I'm naive, what would those habits be, nail restoration because he used to bite them
