Soooooo Pi$$ed right now

Stupid VW driver slams into the back of the BigFasmobile. Luckily he was insured. Swapped all the details etc, but still as pi$$ed as phuck. Pic doesn't make it look too bad, but the reflector was smashed, loads of paint damaged and the bumper is pierced

Will look into changing to the sports rear now. Will my car look dumb if I had a sports rear and standard front & sides?

Yeah, I mean the Mtech rear.

Update from insurers. Me and the other driver are both insured with the same company, they said that I was the first to report the incident, they will give the other guy 24 hours to file otherwise they will go after him. As it's all internal, it's easier to get his policy details. Hopefully, by the end of this week, I'll get the go-ahead to get the work done. Will see how much they will charge to repair, then find out what the difference will be to get the sport (Mtech) rear, if it's not too extortionate, I'll get the sport rear.

I think PDC only beeps when you're in reverse

@thxguy. The PDC didn't go silent. Reidu is correct, PDC is only activated when the car is in reverse. First thing I did was check it, seems to work fine, in fact, if you look at the pic, the sensors seem untouched.

Hey man Fas,

Sorry to hear bro - hope you are not hurt. Can fix the car - cannot fix you, so would be great as long as you're OK.

Anyway, the damage looks clean and not internal - only cosmetic and external. Yup, go with the M-Tech rear bumper and insert for the double exhaust.

Oh and save some for the front too - the back M-tech looks good. But, once you have the front as well, it'll kick a$$.

Tesh and I met up and we spoke of your car - sound sweet man.

Best of luck with your repair and conversion

I was just in an accident also, I am having the body shop put on the M-tech rear, eventually I will upgrade to the front & sides. You just got a free mod
