    Its an emotional one that.

    I remember when i whacked one of my alloys in a car park in Bradford... I was fuming with myself, i was getting prices for a new wheel from VW, the scratch wasn't even that bad lol, i think it's because you always want to try keep your car like brand new, when something so small like a chip appears or you get a few it's not 'mint' anymore is it?

    When the price came back for a new 17' Classis X for the GT Sport i soon forgot about it.

    I've been known to come close to throwing up.
    Looking at the damage every time I get in or out of the car.
    Looking through my house window, trying to see it when it's parked up.
    The first bit of damage is haunting.
    It's a dark dark place to be.
    Stay strong mate, stay strong.
    Time is a healer.

    Yep, know what you mean. Got my car end of last year (used but in good condition). After a couple of months I was following a car and it kicked up a stone and chipped my windscreen. Constantly notice it now and winds me up. What grates more is that I could have pulled out ahead of the car had I not decided to be such a gentleman at a junction!
