So..... Last night I gave my friend a lift home.. I pulled out onto the A2 dual carriageway near my house.. My car was still cold, so I was accelerating gently and doing about 55mph.... At this point what can only be described as "the badgernator" appeared in front of me! It was lying right in the middle of the road on an unlit stretch and as I had a car in the lane next to me I could not swerve. I hit the brakes but still went over it. The "bang" it made was unbelieveable.. Straight away my car starts making a donk donk donk noise, so I stop and we have a look.
Now get this, my car is lowered on h&r springs and that front splitter is looooooow, but somehow it hasn't touched any of that at all! There are no marks or damage visible anywhere, other than a lot of blood on the underneath of my exhaust.. Nothing hanging down, nothing appears bent or broken. The emissions warning light came on and has stayed on since, and the donk noise gets more frequent the faster you go, so I limped the car about a mile back to my house.
It's got no vibration, doesn't drive or steer differently and the noise is still there whether in gear, neutral or reverse......
Hoping it's a shield or something simple, but starting to worry.. I'm now waiting for the rac to come and take a look, or recover it to my garage for me
Look out for Arnold scwarzebadger on the roads, he will mess your s*** up!
