    Just came back to my car from work and found this little freak show, as you can imagine i'm wasn't a happy guy. P!ssed off when tw@ts hit and run. Fecking pr!ck, hope who ever did this burn in hell..!! The wheel arch came off worst with the alloy needing a refurb job :(

    As you can see in the pics, they have left their territorial urine of a paintwork on it.

    I need to check if any camera are installed on this particular road and even turn on for recording, (thanks for the advice, DannyKn9) not sure if the council/police can help, worth asking if any camera footage in the area at the time.
    Don't want to go through the insurance since its already high. My question is, do i need a new arch panel or can it be knocked out, what sort of price am i looking at?

    Any advice appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Offside front wing for all Audi a3 models - 8p0 821 106 f - £135 from dealers!!
    Mike that looks alot worse then you described it over the phone! I would say easier to get a new wing and replace.

    Oh dear, im really unhappy wth your comment Joey. I think that it was rather uncalled for tbh. There are many drivers on the road these days, you cant automatically assume that its a woman, its just as likely to have been a guy. Im going to stop at that just now, im just polite to write what i want to on a public forum

    My apologies Sandra, was an idiotic comment. Was an off the cuff remark without much thought. Didnt think it would be taken so seriously

    Whoever it is, man or beast i still wanna spit on their grave. If i did that to someone, i'd leave a note on their screen and fess up. Mind you the last person who scrapped my car was a female driver in a black Golf convertible but she politely apologised and paid for the damage.

    I was saving up to get all black circles changed in the autumn and full service done inc. cambelt and water pump, guess it will have to be delayed for a while. Instead now i gotta take a few hours off work to get front wing and leave it with the bodyshop then get the wheel refurb. Grrrr..... makes me wanna sell it and buy something else.

    My close friend who is a DCI in the police force advise me to report it anyway so its on record even though nothing can be done without a witness coming forward. I did walk about the scene of the incident and found no street cameras for that road :(

    Sorry,.. ranting over. Normal mode resumed.

    Thanks for all the kind words and support.

    Feel for you, they must have realised what they had done.

    As for your comment, I kind of agree some women are poor drivers but not all of us. Some guys are too esp the sunday drivers with hats on!!! You never know, it could have been a guy who did the damage whilst being too busy oggling a woman!!!! lol

    Anyway, I agree about changing the wing, will get a better finish too.
