    Default Vectrauma, someone parked into me :(

    The one time I let the missus drive my car just so I could borrow her larger car to pick up the Vec facelift front end from n_hudson, I get a call on my way to say that my GSi had been pranged. It was a relief when she said that firstly it was the other driver that reversed into my car and that she had witnesses, but secondly that they hit the prefacelift front end.

    Did I care?
    Not really, as I was going to change the front end anyway and thought the bodyshop could use the time & money to fit my new parts. However, I now have to wait for an insurance assessor to see my car and I'm working away for the next 3 weeks, so I can't do the conversion as soon as I had hoped for until he has seen the car and I now have to drive my car damaged to Scotland, then to Berkshire and back home to Lincolnshire again before I can get it looked at.

    This has all happened after lending my car to the most unluckiest driver around, my missus, who a couple of years ago reversed into a car cracking her bumper, got reversed into in a Tesco car park where the driver lied to his insurance company about the fact that she was parked, was shunted through a red traffic light from behind by a Tesco HGV late last year, now this.

    Thats harsh mate. Just be glad there is nothing structural and it can be sorted with the new Facelifted front end! Still a killer though mate! Hope you get it sorted soon!


    Bye bye Vec B

    I know m8 it' just goes on & on but as we always say these things can & do get fixed but it's a flippin pain to get it sorted. You have the pics & as long the other party have insurance things will sort them selves out, could be in your favour to get the work done.

    M8, That is bad luck! They may not all been her fault but she defiantly attracts bad luck so it would be a big no no for me

    Cheers for the tyres

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    There was plenty of interest on Ebay, but no solid leads, so I've decided to give the GSi 1 more year by facelifting it.

    lol, no worries.
    Again, it's not all bad as I'm looking forward to having the car look even newer now.

    No point really as I reckon their car will cost around £1500 to do through an insurance approved garage. I opted to have my car rapaired at a garage I use quite often who quoted around £800, so hopefully I can get the facelift conversion done for the cost of the repair and claim for it against the 3rd party insurers.

    Edit: Now our cars look different Rich
