    yeah he was quite worried about loosing his licence, turns out the police are offering him a driving course instead.

    No mate the car wasn't parked we were doing about 40 in opposite dircetions. Lucky for me he left a big tyre mark on my side of the road otherwise it would be 50/50 i think.

    That is lucky dude to be fair, my mate had the same happen and the old bill decided no-one was at fault, even though the guy was on the wrong side of the road!

    Not all old drivers are bad in their defence - my nan is 84 and drives faster than me, but also suprisingly well (better than the missus anyway - she's written two cars off in two months!). She's a loon and drives around in an AMG Merc! (I have my suspicions she is pimping out *****es, or selling crack....)

    Anyway, bad luck with the damage mate, noone likes to see that

    Nice tyres incidentally....

    Same here kept thinking 1st pic was front, damn unlucky, but I'm sure a write of & buy it back/fix would be a result no?

    Not sure if that back wheels is ok, looks like its been chipped to some extent. I will be looking to buy it back if its a write off and im un decided weather to get another one as i have a few bits i can transfer over or maybe move on to somthing else. Problem is i want 4WD and that limits it down to only a few cars!
