    Default Just hit the mother of all pot holes

    On the way back from the gym I hit the biggest pot hole shook the car and I absolutely crapped myself I expected the worst after pulling over and putting the hazards on I expected smashed damper broken snowflake flat tyre but no damage as if appears at the moment so fingers crossed I will just have to keep my eye on it over the next few days

    Me too I have had 2sets now one on my preface and one set on my facelift and no cracks so touch wood its ok, the road tax does make you mad though mine went up a tenner and I feel like giving them half and telling then to sort the crap roads out, I did take a pic of the pot hole and it looks like they have cut around it but have not marked it out or put any signage around it

    Go back with today's newspaper and take a picture of the hole to cover you in case of any damage!
