    Not a mod by choice! All i can say is i'm gutted. Driving down a main road and d*ckhead in his corsa decides to pull straight out in front of me from a junction. He just looked left and just pulled out. Not long left my mates bodyshop and was about 5minutes away from mine. I've had some one crash into this car in 2009, 2010 and twice this year already. One hit and run lucky i had witnesses and they parked there car not far from mine and now this one. To say im p*ssed would be an understatement.

    Thanks for all the comments guys :thumbsup:


    Cheers mate. Very nice of you to say that. Just do the same grille again.

    Cheers mate, was only the other day we were texting about AITP and now this. Was really looking forward to BKKM and AITP.
    I doubt i'll be there or the car mate. Last accident it took them from march to june to authorise work. Seriously so annoyed.



    Na no facelift id like to but too be honest i cant be bothered at the minute. Be more of last mod if i get bored.

    i can't afford the RS3 grill at the mo, how hard to you think it would be to convert a 8P3 grill to the look like a RS3? or is not possible.

    how'd you get away with no plate lad?

    Your probably best getting a ttrs grille. Seen them go for £200 and £250 at the lowest on ebay and cutting that up and making it fit your A3 grille. Hmm not sure if im honest just depends on who stops or see's you. Most of them just look and dont say anything. But then i'll get ones who will pull me and use that as an excuse.

    Thanks ads, gutted and ****** off would be an understatement right now. Finally getting the car to a level where i was quite happy with it and now this. Not looking forward to renewal next year either :|

    just had a look on the bay, BKS sell them for around the £250 mark. was it not scary doing a cut and paste job?

    if me were you, i'd put it back to the way it was before the bump, no need to change what looked great.

    Dude. I feel your pain.

    Happened to me at the beginning of the year. Causes so much disruption!

    This isn't a shameless plug but this in the exact reason why I drive with an Onboard camera now. Just to catch whatever "might" happen and to prove what really happened.

    Really hope you get it sorted ASAP mate and not costing too much!

    Car goes into the body shop monday and i get a replacement car tomorrow.

    It will be going back to how it looks dont you worry :) with a few new touches.

    Thanks mate. I can remember your thread about yours. I've been tempted to do the same if im honest have so many close calls where people dont pay no attention to anything.





    I know mate:crying: lol. I'm even considering getting it fixed and just getting a new car. This car is jinxed!!

    Im sorry to see this. This is my faviorate front end of any car on here. Hit the nail on the head with the mix of grill, fogs and tints etc. Gutting that some nail hit it back!
    Its always some nob in a corsa, ruining life for everybody.
    I hope you get this fixed mate. And I hope the other guy gets intimately violated by his insurance company.

    All this thread reminds me of is that I don't have your grill, and that my car could really do with a proper polish! Glad you got it all fixed, car's looking stunning as ever.
