Rammed RS
Well not a good start to the year,
Driving home Wednesday night when a car decided to ram my RS from behind when I was turning right,
Also the b****r drove off, so no details,
Really upset someone has trashed my pride and joy :O(
It all happened so quick I only got some of the reg, the police can't do much and insurance said the same, I've had a quote of £800 to repair the damage, my insurance said it would probably be written off if I decided to claim, the assessor is coming out next week to take a look :O(
Also damaged the boot floor, must of been a bit of corrosion that has collapsed on impact :O(

I'd be touring the local area with a bat.

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

sorry to see this, another case of idiot motorist's, sounds like as said no insurance or pissed, but i have to say even with a slight boot collapse, that damage does not seem to be worth £800.00, is some of that work not diy?/cosmetic

If I were you matey, I would get the rear bumper off and take a look at the rear panel and look inside to see if anymore damage has been caused also look underneath as well to see if anything has affected the chassis etc. just so you know what has been affected so you can forward that on to bodyshops. Also shop around bodyshops for quotes especially look for classic restore bodyshops they may help better than insurance volume shops. Because I used to work for a high volume insurance shop before and my god some of the repairs they just cheap out on big time!

rubbish dude, sorry to hear about this :( gonna join sidrick on this one, got me crowbar! Farnham's not too far from me) I remember when my old escort got driven into much the same place as yours, the garage was really concerned as to whether the boot had been creased or not, they said that would be a universe of difference in cost! I'm sure someone on here can chuck you a new bumper and bits, and at least it's highlighted some work that needed doing in the rust department (so there's sort of a bright side).

Pity I've got a mk6 and no mk5 parts lying about for ya. fcuking low life scum, and an alfa driver on top!!

It is one of those situations where you are stuck with the damages and nothing you can do about it. The positive side of things is the fact that it is a few scratches instead of destroying your car. It is a shame, however, because it is a beautiful car. We had the same happen to us a few months ago while trying to park. We were backing into the stall when the person behind us never even slowed down. It was only a small dent in the bumper that popped right out, but there was a visible mark where it had obviously been pushed in.
