someone last night has smashed into the back of my focus and drove away. Came out to go to work and was greeted by my bumper being smashed, boots got one big line of dint right across it and the wings got damage too. phoned police, and gotta go station with my details. So annoyed but i know theres pretty much nothing i can do. Sigh..

Ba****ds. It's so frustrating when this happens. Could you not keep an eye out for any cars with damage in the vacinity? Or cars you always see but seem to have disappeared? Long shot I know, but it might pay off.

Best of luck with it.

been to the station and police basicly said hard luck. Gonna get my self to the scrap yard and see how much i can get a tailgate for. Should be able to pull and fill the back quarter and get a new bumper. Im betting its some scumbag with no insurance. Gonna have to be a DIY job, will cost a fortune done in the shop and not worth loosing the no claims over it.
