    Default 3yrs without a mark then....

    Bl00dy hell, I've had my car for 3 yrs now with hardly a mark & not one scuff on an alloy.

    Until now!

    Last week I hit a piece of wood flicked up on the M6 & put a nasty mark on the bumper by the plate & above.

    Tonight I swing into my own drive (which is easily wide enough for 2 cars) & clout the s0dding kerb on the way in, scuffing the front alloy & prob knocking the tracking.

    I don't know how the hell I managed it, the drive is so wide & I've pulled in & out thousands of times.

    I live in a Cul de sac so there was no traffic about, I just pulled in & bang

    I feel like thumping myself in the b@lls as punishment!!

    ive done something like that.

    i had bought myself a vectra b 2.2sri 150 with full leather interior.

    and what do i do - i sit down in the drivers seat with a screwdriver in my back pocket..........RIIIIPPPPP

    i wanted to stab myself in the leg - I was that annoyed.........

    so my heart goes out to you m8 - as they say - at least no one was injured.

    Thanks guys, it's only cosmetic, about a 1.5" gnarly bit now on the alloy. It's annoying though.

    It drives fine with no pulling so I'm consoling myself that it could've been worse!

    I still can't believe I kerbed it pulling into my drive, I looked this morning & I was unlucky, I just about caught the angled stone where it drops, 3-4" further & it would have done nothing, but then 2" the other way would have been much worse!

    Your heart sinks when you do something dumb like that, I'm still p'd off now!

    Do you think I should get the tracking checked?
