    Angry Grrrrrrrrr

    Had the Veccy a year now, first VX for me and a real revelation. I chose a nearly new Sri cdti estate for various reasons mostly because of a new addition to the family and intially I saw it as a compromise choice. Anyhow over the last 12 months the car has really grown on me. How gutted was I when almost a year to the day after picking her up I notice this has happened while parked on a "quiet" residential street.....


    Some ar3e40l3 has wiped out the rear door, stoved in the rear arch by a good 3 inches - the photo doesn't really show how 'inverted' it is, and dinged the front door and back bumber into the bargain. It's looks like a van or 4x4 has turned into and through me. There is no way anyone has done that and not noticed is there? Now I'm faced with fixing an otherwise pristine car or driving around with a hideous scar. If I claim on the insurance I'm looking at £125 excess and loss of 2 yrs no claims but I still think thats a lot cheaper than paying to sort out myself. Grrrr if I got hold of the tw4t that did it...........

    Anyhow I've actually calmed down a hell of a lot or I wouldn't be able to post about it on here & I know in the big scheme of things its just some bent metal.

    Still chaffs though

    That would have made a hell of bang when they did that, someone must have seen or heard it.

    have you knocked around the houses close by someone may have seen something but not coming forward , long shot but worth a try.

    I knocked on a few doors each side of where I was parked, one old lady answered and she seemed pretty frightened/confused about what I was on about so I didn't push it. I've taken a couple of detours round the area to have a look for any corresponding damage on other vehicles, and my friends who walk dogs in the area are keeping their eyes peeled. Had one false positive, a damaged bumper on a Nissan Primastar but on closer inspection the bumper wouldn't have cleared the wheel/tyre without leaving some kind of mark.
