    Default Veccy write-off

    Just spotted a very badly damaged Veccy slammed against the crash barrier on the on-slip for the M74 heading from Motherwell.

    It has 2 lanes, one heading for Carlisle and the other for Glasgow, and the Carlisle lane is completely covered in a lake sized puddle and you can feel the force of the water when driving through it.

    I'm no expert but i'm guessing the car was going through this at some speed and has spun out smashing against the barrier and ended up facing in the wrong direction. No other cars were there apart from a traffic car but the front end was totally mangled. There's no way it isn't a write-off

    Driving down the motorway at 55 i could feel the force of the wind against the car.......

    Does it come with the brakelight or would i have to remove the existing one from my tailgate?

    It fits over the brakelight, the brakelight isn't included on any VXR spoiler.

    Shame you didn't get a pic Tam, they generally hold up really well in a smash.
