    At least you know all your road tax is going to pay for repairs to the roads. Oh, wait.

    I'm suspecting a broken coil spring as I'm getting a squeak over tough road and sipped bumps from off side front that's the side I hit the pot hole with so looks like new H&R's have to be ordered I'm just going to have to wait and see what my mate says on Saturday

    Sorry about the damage, hope it's minor. I had a buckled wheel myself recently from a bad pothole. Wish they'd spend some of the money they take off the motorists on the roads.

    I suffered £1100 of suspension and wheel damage after a misplaced road sign directing you down a 90deg service road at 70mph and haven't seen a penny back :-/ but seems they've moved the sign after I sent them a letter.

    It infuriates me to think I might not get a penny but in honesty I don't think I will what makes me mad is 6 months ago I spent over a £1000 on my new suspension set up just hope its big knackered now

    You need to take a dated photo of the pothole as evidence, also measure the depth and possibly use a matchbox as reference of the size?

    my snowflake looks like a 50p piece from the roads around here.. last time I hit a big one in my 306 I broke a headlight mount, buckled wheel and bulged the tyre. I contacted the council and they filled it in, I asked for some compensation, they told me to **** off as there was no evidence that it was caused by the pothole..
