Well after 5 years without a prang i have gone and bent the Clio thanks to numbnuts in a Vectra a couple of weeks back.
On a big roundabout, i was coming round, had not been in car long so tyres were cold and he decides to pull out onto the roundabout across me at the last moment and then change his mind and stop right in front of me across the roundabout.
I meanwhile have stamped on the anchors and tried to avoid him, and the back end has come round. I caught it as it came but it snapped severely the other way and spun me round and i banged the rear on the kerb hard. Side airbag went off right in my ear, which was a bit painful. Meanwhile numbnuts has driven off.
Have had the car inspected and the damage is:
Bent rear axle, bent real wheel hub, buckled wheel, damaged tyre, new seat required due to airbag going off. all pyrotechnics for airbags need recharging.
Have a guess how much.......£3200 !!!!! Theres no body damage, so i thought that is a bit steep. Renault special ordered a seat in from France and the wrong one turned up so i have been driving a 1.0 Micra for nearly 3 weeks now
