Well I'm heading out at 7:30 this evening to get a mag from the local shop when I come down to the end of a one way street in my home town which meets another one way street where you have to turn right....I look both ways and nothing coming so I pull out only to have the front of my Benz taken off by some stupid bitch driving a Vauxhall Zafira the wrong way down the one way.....

After restraining myself from putting my ugly head on, I get out and am greeted by a young chap who was behind me wanting to be a witness..(TOP BLOKE). The woman wanders over and we exchange info and she says "I'm not from this area!!" Who fxxking cares......

Its damadged her NSF quite badley...(who cares)..

My Benz's bumper is fxxked, with both ends sticking out, all of the grills etc under the bumper are no where to be seen, My grill and bonnet are fxxked, luckily all of the lights are OK...ripped the no plate and mounting clean off!! All of the inner arch plastic is knackered as well, God knows whats happened behind the bumper assembly!!!

I'm fxxking pixxed off

Sorry to hear that Greg,

I hope everything works out, I have the reciept for the Lorinser Grill if you want it.

Time for a AMG front bumper with fogs? or how about get your car repaired but get extra on the quote enuff to fund your zorst...

Major bummer, sorry to hear about that.

Does this make you feel any better? I doubt it, but thought you'd like to see one crumple.

Gutted to hear that mate <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('>

Not much I can say to cheer you up - but if there is anything we can do to help out in any way - just ask !

I hope the insurance works out in your favour - replacement AMG bumper seems only fair under the circumstances.

Yeah cheers 180...Done me the world of good.......I wouldn't wish a smash like that on anyone!!!!!!

On an up note though, just spent the last hour in the garage with it and managed to salvage my Lorinser grill, it had just been pushed back out of the frame, I removed it and all  seems ok with it other than the centre top to bottom chrome trim being knackered, I'm sure I can get one of those from somewhere!!...Popped the old grill back in for now....

Also went back to the scene with my camera and took loads  of pics, Theres so many &quot;keep left&quot; signs and &quot;no right turn&quot; signs and &quot;one way&quot; signs, she hasn't got a leg to stand on......

Cheers for your support guys

when your insurance gives u a new grill, take the chrome slat of it for the lorinser <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>


edit:

infact if it goes to one of your garages then take all the slats of the lorinser and have them paint the plastic Azurite Blue and then bung the slats back on, that would look so nice....

You're welcome.

That's not a real RTA in the picture, just a test <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>

A good idea that I was told was to always keep one of them single use throw away cameras in the car.

I keep mine in the glove box just in case <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'> .

Mind you it would'nt be any good for Koolvin as they dont do digital ones yet <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':p'> &nbsp;<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':p'>
