    Default Vectra Vs Pigeon...

    ...and the Pigeon won , well kinda

    Driving along a country road, 60mph, and a pigeon decides to fly down and land on the road right in front of me. Stupid thing is right in my path..... BANG, a puff of feathers everywhere, then my bulb failure comes on nearside fog light

    Got home, cleared the feathers away, had a look and it has hit right on the NS fog, the plastic trim was dislodged (but intact); however the bottom bracket of the fog light is broken. I was half-expecting to see the pigeon lodged in there somewhere!

    I've put the trim back for now, I'll get the bumper off this weekend to see how bad the damage is, hopefully repairable if the light itself still works. Failing that, anyone know how much a NS front fog costs for a pre-face SRi bumper LOL.
