Had a bad crunch and slid on some oil or diesel on the gallows corner round about !!!!! Lost control of it and the rear passenger wheel hit the kerb and the suspension has collapsed.

I left the car in a lay by for Sinclair's to come and get it and just had a call from them telling me it has been keyed and is in a very sorry state as it needs a complete new rear suspension on it - plus a repaint now !!!!!!!!!

Some parts can be saved but the damage is pretty bad. Looks like the insurance will be getting a call

A very p-eeed of

bad luck chap (theres bit going about at the mo) Hope it gets sorted and better than new :)

every cloud has a silver lining or so they say. Probably a techspeed suspension setup and new alloys in your case :D

Looks like it is going to be sorted out ( i hope ) I am going to go to the garage this afternoon and have a look at it and work out what they are going to do. I know the suspension is knackered though (shame as it has the full MS set up on it big brake kit polybushes etc etc) but it will all be replaced with MS stuff so it should be ok.

Also re the paint it gives my an opportunity to stick that new TF boot on along the new wings front and rear bumper I have plus all the other bits i have been collecting for it. :idea:
The question now though is do I add some dosh to it and go for a custom paint job I was thinking Plat silver with a tiny bit of red pearl or do I leave it just plain Plat silver -incase something happens again and i need to get more work done
Am well gutted about it but I am sure "Dee" could put a smile back on my face "23 ehh " Jesus I bet you have broke a few hearts.......
