    However we have fixed her! :yahoo:
    With a few new goodies...... 18" R8 alloys (hehe Im spoilt) The new bonnet, bumper, wing, front ns door, back ns door, radiator, air con condenser, fog lights, re-bar , wing mirror glass and a total re-spray on the near side (think thats it!), the purple princess is back!! (Pics to follow)

    So im really looking forward to all the meets and spending more money than i have on my baby :o.k:

    Thanks.

    I thought it looked fun!! Nar A bit too much speed, roads I didn't know, and loose gravel. Im really looking forward to being able to drive it and certainly don't plan on doing it again. I have never been so scared in my life:(

    Aww yeah..Well at least you wont do it again! Cost a bit to get her all fixed up? But main thing is your fine. aww lol bless you. Big bush mind


    Dont worry i was in my a3 when a clip sport decided he wanted a race i let him speed off as it was raining, he didnt see the sharp corner and hit it at too much of a high speed and went straight off the road turned on its top a few times and landed back on its wheels. He was lucky he never took himself out and any one else!

    When the car going back on the road?

    Have been fighting the insurance company for nearly 2 months and been fixing it since i got it back 2 weeks ago!

    Thats ok you can laugh :(

    Well im with Toscos and tbh there slogan should be very little helps! Where do I begin..... I put in the claim and it took them 4 weeks to process
    They lost all my docs that i sent them
    They failed to call me back
    They told the DVLA my car had been scrapped and sent the log book back to them even though it was sat on my drive!
    They sent the engineer guy to the wrong place...twice!
    It took them 7 weeks to send out my cheque AFTER they had said yes its a write off bla bla bla
    Oh and I didnt get my clubcard points!!

    The only good thing is i got a free pressure washer out of it lol

    As for the drive....OMG!! What a beast hehe I have never felt so exillerated I love it :)

    Lolol aww im sorry :thumbsup:
    Your with tesco haha! I actually work for them in head office though

    Doesnt sound good. Sounds quite terrible such a big mess saying your car was scrapped and that. I bet you was pretty p*ssed off? Did they even say sorry or any thing? Lol i think you should go get your clubcard points!
    Haha pressure washer is it any good?

    Aww well thats good =D i bet your happy she back on the road.. and you driving sensibly.
    Im actually thinking about selling my a3

    :asskicking:Thats for working for Tesco!
    And no not good atall I was well annoyed and no they didnt even say sorry. You could probally read my file I was calling every day for a month Im sure it 20 pages long on how much of a stroppy cow I was lol.

    As for the clubcard points I agree I should get them my policy cost £500!!
    The pressure washer is fantastic as it only cost me £4.95 delivered lol bout time i got something for nothing from them hehe.


    Im really happy she is back and yes im driving very sensibly took it for an MOT today and found that the offside rear coil spring was snapped!! that was like it before the accident so one is not ammused as you can well imagian!! :motz:

    Anyway why you going to sell? I hope you go better and get an S3 or something similar like an R8 :hubbahubba:but hey thats another story lol

    Lol now that was not NICE AT ALL! :( lmao thats funny! 20pages long 'stroppy cow' its understandable though they made loads of mistakes.
    Lol well give them a call thats 500pointes haha towards november mailing of vouchers haha! Lol yeah thats true..See could of been free delivery if i knew.

    Ohh no when you looking to getting that fixed? and how much that gonna set you back? lol id be pretty p*ssed off by now haha! To be honest im selling because im greedy haha! I want a new facelift one! lol but i might just keep mine and putting the money away towards a s3 and insurance. I do want a s3 but insurance for a 18 year old probably be like £12,000 lol and r8 haha in my dreams.
    What you think of this form?

    I fixed it yesterday and did break disks and pads :) Got a VIC on wed so had to get it done.
    I spent 3 hours ringing round and traveling to try and find the coil. It cost £60 which is good as the guy got it in specially for me that afternoon (bless him) and as we did it, I don't have to pay labour costs hehe.
    At least now I know that all is ok with he.

    As for the forum, I think im going to learn alot. A few people see im a girl and assume I dont have a clue and question my judgment but hey ho such is life.

    Anywho PICTURES!!!???
