    It could have been so much worse. Hope you are both ok now.
    It does look bad in day light.

    He is calling himself cecil the sausage and he has that pic as his avatar. Think its very clear who the "bell" is. Glad most understand i was trying to be humerous. Be nice for a heads up from the op. Bad times joking aside.

    yeah pretty gutted to see her lookin so sad but on the plus side I have my tt comps back and all 4 are good.
    for those that asked , I was hit by some punk in an out of control mini on my side of the road on a bend around a month ago.
    I have nearly got it all sorted with insurance , I still have no cheque to cash and am still driving the vauxhall bore-signia but am getting somewhere, I got a good offer eventually after lots of calls back n forth.
    My belongings still havent shown up though, I thought they must have left them in the car , but they arent in there today. Ins company dont know where they are , including my sat nav!
    also the car had been hoovered?Inside is spotless.
    I will be looking to sell bits of the car eventually when I know what I have next etc ...


    some more pics

    Hahaha.... Sticks and stones... Just think the remark was a bit out of context.... It's not what I would be wanting to read if I was the OP.... But that's just my personal opinion....I obviously haven't got a sense of humour....

    I know it no help. But it shows just how well built the Audi is. There is no damage past the front wings, the screen is still good and the doors look like they are still a good fit.

    Hope you get it sorted soon

    got my belongings today... all slung in a bin bag with no care and looked as though they had been booted around, car shampoo leaked all over my sat nav, and a painting given to us as a gift all scrunched up and stuffed in the bag.

    I am going to do that , my insurance have a habit of transfering me from department to department, and then either promising to call back, or just hanging up! Anyone know who to contact regarding complaining about an insurance company, because apparently Churchill dont have a complaints dept!?

    Jay , its a honda s2000 air filter on there, cost about 15 quid in euro car parts and slides straight onto the maf once the airbox is removed. I have a pipercross panel filter if you wanted to keep the airbox.

    Im sure there is an insurance ombudsman that you can speak to regarding any complaints.
