    Angry Broke New Car on Day 1

    My first post ever, so a total virgin and what a start!


    Picked up my new 2.2 SRI and managed to hit an un-marked highway kerb at about 50m.p.h. less than 12 hours later smashing 2 wheels and tyres, bent a strut and wishbone! Just a tiny bit gutted. Anyone know where I can get a used o/s strut and wishbone?

    Already replaced the wheels with a quick purchase off Ebay which managed to get me mobile, just need the bits above to make to car better!

    My sympathies - hit a kerb in a car park at a much lower speed 2 weeks after buying the car, blowing a tyre and marking the alloy..... really annoying given its self inflicted....!

    All the best !

    Thanks Steve, the self inflicted damage really hurts. Forgot to mention the broken mirror and scratches down the side which I managed to sort quickly. Not my best of driving days!

    Gutted though put into prospective as a family of 4 lost thier lives on the day of my prange, just a bit of tin really.....
