    Buggery hell!!!

    I decided to have a fight with a speed bump and lost. Ive cracked the side of my ABT front skirt and now its all over the show.

    Anyone seen any nice front bumpers/splitters recently?

    Need it fixed asap!!

    Why do bad things happen to cars when your trying to sell them?! I got a cracked windscreen when I was selling my A4 a couple of months ago, most annoying although glad the stone didnt hit the bonnet & dent it!

    My advice in fairness would be to try & bodge fix what you've got! Take of the bumper, apply fibre glass to the rear of the crack, body filler to the front, smooth & repaint and off you go again. Got to be cheaper than a replacement!

    Im rethinking the selling idea now. Why sell a car Ive invested so much in, when i could just make it better.

    So a respray and hydraulics are on the cards. Maybe some new wheels. ICE etc.

    I have a real problem.

    Thanks J7USS

    I honestly dont know. Ive always fancied a white one, with the same dark areas.

    Been after some 20" Bentley Mullingars but it would rule out the need for hydraulics!

    Maybe down to 18"? Who knows!
