Oh no! I really feel for you Si. What a nightmare. That’s one for the insurance to sort I’m guessing(?)
How much damage did the car suffer all in?




What did I do to my mk8 today? Gave it a wash for the second time this week. Bloody hell it was cold.

Yesterday I gave it some slalom practice dodging branches blown all over the road at 5am. Safe to say it would pass the elk test quite well. The IQ lights never cease to impress me. Occasionally they don’t impress oncoming drivers though.

On Friday I discovered Pilot Sport 4S don’t corner at all in wet snow. The first snow I’ve seen since March 2018 and thankfully it was gone in under an hour.

Yeah mate just more frustrating that I haven't done it myself, just top of the bonnet dented in the middle about 6 inches and heavily scratched and couple blew onto alloys and chipped them two. Hit 3 cars in total but mine was the least of the damage

It’s just one of those things we all dread happening. Unfortunate that it happened to you but as you say, it could have been worse. Fingers crossed you manage to get a prompt and high quality repair.

Today the car had its first service.
Not so much what I did to my mk8 today as I barely lifted a finger!
Proof for those that have known me since the mk6 and mk7 days I can keep a car 12 months 😁

Software still on 1666 and still fairly stable (although the car does have things I’ve yet to use still)

I’ll update my car thread at some point soon for a 12 month running report but it’ll be scant news.

So today I fitted some new wheels,I seriously damaged 2 of the Pretoria reps I had a while back and you can’t buy individual replacements ,had to put up with the richmonds for 5 weeks.

Looks miles better now with Bola B11’s fitted,just need vw badges for the centre caps(custom order as they are 67mm).
