    Hey guys,

    Haven't been on here in a whole but thought I'd post about what happened earlier.

    I was driving, doing about 40mph when this baby deer walked into the road on the other side. I slowed down to 30 and then it turned around and started walking off so I carried on still staying at 30. Then suddenly it darts across the road in front of my car, I braked really hard ABS kicked in, and it hit the front of my car went flying and got seriously injured. It's probably going to die, I feel horrible. I know it's not my fault but still it's a life that's ended. My car needs a new grill now but I don't care about that. I can get a new grill but this deer won't come back.

    Anyway I feel absolutely awful.

    And to top things off I need a new grille and I have no idea where to get one.

    If that was a pun then brilliant, absolutely brilliant ha!

    Okay I'll have a word. Is TPS on this forum? Stealers will probably be ridiculously over priced!

    Shame it wasn't dead outright after the impact. It could have paid for your new grill.

    No you couldn't as that would be poaching. But anyone else driving past is welcome take it to eat or sell.

    TPS is Trade Parts Specialist CLICK There should be one near you. Or try ebay

    I would never sell it don't worry! I felt bad enough that I hit it let alone make money from it.

    Great thanks, I'll give them a call.
