yeah this is true. honesty is the best policy as they say. i'm a bit gutted but not really annoyed or anything. just a bit of a bitch to try sort it. couuld have been worse. could've damaged something i've already modded lol

Are they footing the bill? Lol


damn straight!! but it's my in laws next door neighbour so i'm trying to get it cheap as possible for them

atleast its an unboltable part in a common colour


turns out not as common as i thought lol well at least not in the north west lol worst part is my bumper is in body shop so i got a broken and gaffa taped blue one fitted and now a big dent in door. my pride and joy looks like a piece of s**t lol

There's a road with a load of breaker's yards in Bury; Pimhole Road, right next to Openshaw Park. I recommend Autosave, managed to get a front bumper and a rear door in tourmallard green which is quite rare on a mk6, so silver shouldnt prove too difficult.

forgive the cliche could have been worse.

6" toward the back and even that slight impact could have bent the base of the A pillar and potentially runined the feasability of keeping the motor on the road.

plus your motors a proper common colour in regards to escorts so its not even funny how easy it'll be to find a replacement.

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates
!
you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

If your going to search for the door for a while, hammer out the door a bit so you can use the window.

Very true, unlike in my case where someones gone into my rear st24 bumper & hit it off its bracket cracking it all & ruining the bracket. No one saw a thing.
Never a nice thing to hear all the same but at least he will foot the bill. Poor lad was probably too scared to come and tell you.
