A good public flogging sounds good to me haha.


Took the car to the body shop today. Need a new door and the whole passenger side resprayed. Its going to cost in the region of £800... Glad I'm fully comp.


I give a statement to the cops the other day, the office told me that another 3 cars in the street had got the same treatment... absolute scum.

True cal, can't get them to pay up if they don't have a wrap to their name. Unfortunately it's usually the case with vandalism like this.

Sorry to hear about your sisters car. Sickening to think that the crack head will probably be having a laugh about it with his mates.

Restoration justice seems like a waste of time, more likely a badge of honour for some of these low lifes

Take a real scumbag to do something like this. Luckily it happened right in view of a cctv camera. The car parked in front had its windscreen smashed too. I'm going up the the cops today to give a statement so hopefully whoever done it is known and won't get away with it. Probably wishful thinking though.

In Topic: New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

I have been having some issues with my black edition (main issue, I wish I had got the Red :D). When I accelerate the car seems to cut out for 1-2 seconds and then its good to go again. I took it into Ford and the told me they found an issue with the audio head unit and reprogrammed it. But they couldn't find any other issues. Slightly annoyed as the i was still having the problem, I brought it back and they told me they would take it in for a few days this week and see what they can do.


On Saturday night I went to get a dirty chinese at 12.30am and when I collected my grub and returned to my car it was dead as a dodo. It turned the key and the lights flashed once then nothing. Panic stations... Got out of the car in pouring rain and opened the bonnet. Checked the battery and found the connection was very loose. Tightened it with my hand and away the car went.


Would anyone think that the loose battery connection cause the car to cut out when accelerating? I'm hoping that was the problem all along. But to me it seems strange that the car would have a battery issue when the engine is running.


PS sorry for long post
