    That was the owner I’m sure, he (briefly) posted about it on Facebook

    Always had me wondering, was the van indicating left and he pulled out?

    I dont know if it was or was not the owner. I came across it and that's what it said. I would of thought the owner would be able to drive and not get himself in such a situation but hey some people are just unlucky.

    How did that happen then? Strange how the wheels straighten up a second or two before the crash.

    Doesn't appear he even saw the van until the last split second.

    I can't believe what I just watched.
    (assuming it might be the owner driving it, certainly didn't look freshly cleaned)
    As Abs said and I agree, anyone with a car like that who takes it to a hand scratch and wash type of car wash doesn't deserve such a special car.
    And being foreign, probably looked the wrong way before pulling out.
    I'd never do that if you bought your AMG to my valeting company ;)

    I wouldn’t care about the car - more pertinently, I hope no one was seriously injured or worse .

    To be fair to these wash guys they are very good, you regularly see mostly expensive new cars Jags Mercs Range Rovers BMWs at this place, Ive used them frequently and they have always done a v good job.
    I have once got them to Valet my Honda (bought new) as well as wash it, it looked newer inside than when I drove it off the Honda forecourt in the first place
