OK, a few weeks back I had a prang in my car, which caused me to need a new bonnet, new bumper and some repaint work done. It was really annoying because not only did that mean I had to pay out my rather large excess, but I also had to drive around in an awful courtesy car, a Kia Placenta (or whatever the hell it was called).
So, I had my car back all shiny and new and made a pact to go at least a year without needing it fixing again, as the BMW body shop know me by name now.
However, last night it had a little bump again. This time though it wasn’t my fault. Some guy reversed into me in a car park, driving a Renault Espace. The bump didn’t seem too bad at first, but then I noticed the knock on my bumper (on the drivers side) has caused the other side of the bumper to buldge, which has pushed it out passed the headlight. Also, the side panel on the passenger side has been pushed back, causing the passenger door to catch when it’s opened.
Bloody typical. 2 weeks, that’s all I lasted, 2 weeks. Now I’ll have a damn courtesy car again. It better not be that Kia.
