I don't like people who drive like halfwits with a "child on board" sign in their car:
Firstly, you think we should all be careful of you because you have a child inside, yet you're not careful of us??
Secondly, if you want to drive like the end of a bell, then do it WITHOUT your kid in the car!

Yeah probably was a bender, it didn't wake my kids up or me (I went to bed at 2am and was then dead to the world....) but my father in law heard it down the road and it woke him up.

Sadly I have nowhere to build a garage, live on a terraced Road with no front garden or driveway so it has to be parked on the road...

Well the bodywork is just scratched down to primer and beyond to metal in some places, it will need repairing but I don't have any money to do it, so will have to at some point Polish them out as far as possible. So they damaged the passenger door and the bonnet, I had some pleb keyed it a while ago on the drivers door and the bumper is scratched to hell from idiots who just can't seem to drive or move their trolleys. Not to mention the door handles which people have managed to scratch as well...

I will have a lot of work cut out for fixing the bodywork and absolutely no budget to do it.

I really feel for you! You've had a bit of a battering recently, I hate all that kind if crap! It really sours the whole feeling towards people and can take away enthusiasm for the car a little bit!

..... You might be able to get the stuff done on insurance?

...I didn't say YOUR insurance, just locate your nearest Corsa meet...

Yeah mines metallic I was quoted 200 quid which I don't have unfortunately, I built the layers with primer then applied some paint and just polished it, taking some layers of paint off, its better and slightly less obvious but it's still not where I want it.

It's a nightmare! I know exactly the feeling with cash. I'm one of those people that always likes to have a bit of a buffer with money, but whenever the buffer gets just enough to start being a bit indulgent or fix something, something happens, or its a birthday/Christmas/etc. Rear speakers have not worked properly for the last 8-10 months, but it's just time and money to replace them. Granted speakers are not THAT expensive, but it's all relative :(

I hate jealous idiots who key cars. Still haven't sorted mine out, everytime I open my door I get angry then have to try forget about it, but since I don't have the money for a respray I can't do anything to really fix it...

I feel for you James and others. It's horrible to have something inflicted on your property by a horrible act and be unable to fix it!

Cyclists wouldn't bother me so much if they weren't all willing to die just to make a point.... even if they're actually wrong...

Not condoning robbery but if you type in something like youtube to mp3 on Google (exactly those words) there are converters to convert the sound off any video and turn it into an mp3 (hence the name)....

I've heard it's good for getting music...... But I'd never do that... ;)

Try find a baron John nearby or more specifically one of their outlets. I got a 350 quid suit for 75!

Showing my wife to be the video on the home screen of the RS and saying "I'm getting this" (I was joking)....

Don't we all James! Even 10 grand would help me out massively at the moment... It'd last about a week on our work... But be helpful...

I'd like to know exactly what was on their minds to put all thoughts about the kiddie and his/her welfare out the door with the garbage!!!.

Some form of fast food and an American sport?

#523551 Highway Code And Application

Posted by Ianb on 16 September 2015 - 03:06 PM

My Highway Code must have been different, I remember it saying if someone is tailgating you, brake and stop in the middle of the road, jump out of the car and sprint to theirs while simultaneously screaming obscenities and then attempt to remove them from their drivers seat for a physical lesson in why you dont tailgate! I will see if i can find my book.;)

I just become more laborious in my driving, taking extra care when turning, nice and slow, don't accelerate too hard or brake too hard.... And of course if their car is nice and clean, windscreen washer wars commence....

Posted by Ianb on 16 September 2015 - 03:03 PM

Remember that molten aluminium & water are explosive ! - Yes really.
The blank must be ferrous steel :)

Ah Yeh, I stuck a magnet from my phone cover near the blanking plate I have, :( no sticky :( I'll try again at some point with a proper magnet, but I'm not 100% sure it's good
