Bus 1-0 Golf
« on: 04 July 2013, 09:16 »
Just had an argument with a bus on the way to work, and the bus won.

Totally destroyed my door mirror, probably the worst thing on the car to get a replacement for... :cry:

It was kinda 50/50. If I went against the bus company I would have no chance, they're in the police and council's pocket over here

Doubt our buses have CCTV on the outside, don't forget we live in pre-historic land.

Gutted bout your mirror mate, wouldn't have been so bad if you didn't have fancy ones :sad:

Is it 100% non repairable?
