#279861 My Mk4 Fez Progress Thread

Posted by PubeHeed on 04 August 2013 - 11:59 AM

People of the FOC, I have some bad news. On Friday the 2nd of August, my little fez was involved in an accident.

Incident happened
2/8/13
2:25pm on A7 between stow & gala

Was driving along the A7 towards galashiels and got to the long straight outside stow. Driving along the road I noticed a small item in the road at the last minute. There was a car coming towards me so I couldn't swerve to miss it. it went under the car and there were a few loud bangs. I noticed the item fly out the back of my car and I pulled into a layby behind a tractor and trailer, and noticed the car had left a trail of oil all the way up the road and the oil was pouring from my car and had sprayed all over the undercarriage. I asked the tractor driver if anything had fallen off his tractor and he said he didn't know. We proceeded to walk up the road until we found the item. It was a valve from his slurry tanker. He admitted fault and admitted the item was his. I then walked with him to the car, and took his details. We then had a look at the damage, and then The driver said "if the damage isn't too expensive I will just pay you straight up to avoid the hassle of going through insurance but if the damage is expensive then I will be happy to go through the insurance."

After the driver left the scene, I then called Scottish Borders Council and reported the oil spill. A man from the road works team then came down and proceeded to put sand over the spill.

I have photos as evidence of my cars damage and The tractor driver holding the item. Aswell as the tractors No. plate.

I am now reduced to having to drive my mothers Vauxhall Zafira :'(
Please take potty on me :(

i had the alloys on, and the car was starting to take shape. next thing i tackled was to upgrade from the crappy air filter i had to a bigger and louder induction kit. while i was fitting the cone filter i had a call from my cousin, saying his partner wrote off her ZS and he had a set of lexus lights for me. was a hit or miss oppertunity, and it payed off! look amazing!

next after the de badge came a debadged grill. after that was to get some cheeky stickers one it! and after that, some alloys on the beast! so i opted for some 15" TSW's.
