Look on the bright side, at least they came and told you.

 

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.

 

yeah pimhole was my next option cheers

 

there is a silver 5 door in AFOS near manchester city centre

 

dunno how good the drivers door is though

 

will google it cheers

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.

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.
