    Bad news mate - but to make you feel better it could have been worse

    whatever hit the screen could have impacted into the bodywork and caused some significant damage -insurance excess and increase in premium...

    or gone through the radiator/intercooler - which would have been a mechanical failure - not covered by insurance = more expense -

    probably the best/cheapest place it could have hit -

    It's them ****** dump trucks, they come out of quarries or building sites with stones, rocks and even house bricks(!!!!!!) stuck between the rear wheels and then some unlucky sod gets a face full as soon as they work loose!

    The worst thing is, there's no way at all you can claim off them for the damage to your car. My previous car was hit by a stone the size of my fist from one of these things, I took a photo of the truck and gave the details to my insurance company and they did nothing at all

    Right on!

    Something quite scary about following a truck and noticing a brick jammed between the twin wheels just waiting to shoot out at you.
