To look on the bright side, at least you didn't catch the wheel arch on that side.

lol - that would have been two on the same side. I think if i'd done that I would just have gotten rid of the damn thing (& replaced it with another mk4, obviously [;)])

Edit: <frantically touching lots of wood>

Ouch thats a crying shame [:(]

At least it's Friday so you can drown your sorrows. I had Mk3 that was cursed for dents, prangs etc (none my fault of course) but it was red and they're meant to be unlucky.

crap like this allways happens. at least you chose the right thing to damage rather than your whole car and life! for ?40-50 tops a good re-furber will sort that and have it looking brand new. (well they are brand new, but you know what i mean!)

There is a place in Plains, near Airdrie that my mate used for his RS6 after he'd kerbed them. They were in a much worse nick than yours but you would have known it afterwards! He also got his 330Ci rims done there as well and they ended up like new!!!

Thanks for the sympathy guys. It's like a virtual hug [:eek:)]

Lots of good suggestions also... had a look on the Strathycruise website (God help me) for local refurbers. Lots of them seem to recommend 'Trims & things' in Coatbridge. Phoned them up & they'll do a spot repair as I don't want to lose my lettering from ?35>.

Apart from that, went to the cash machine & got ?30 out so I can go straight to the pub when I get home. I'll need it!

Make sure you updte your sig. it must be more than ?415 worth of oops by now

Ouch! That was a bit below the belt!!!

Cat, if it makes you feel better, I finished off my holiday to Disneyland Paris a few weeks ago by catching the sill of my Touran on a high curb on a corner. No other damage apart from an 18" dent along the sill.

The cost of this damage? [:O][:O][:O] ?1200!!!!! [:O][:O][:O]

If it wasn't going through the insurance, I would tell the STEALER where to shove it! I wouldn't care but they said it would take a week but they've already had it 2 1/2 and they're waiting for another part from the factory! So we're stuck with a bloody Fiat Punto!! [V]

PJ52GLY, maybe this is my karma for finding comedy in your misfortune. Knew it was probably wrong at the time - but obviously i wasn't laughing at you, just it was written - still cracks me up right now [:D]

Boys, don't fight - we've had enough of that recently [B)]. Take both your points though, the comment was both funny and ouch at the same time - was actually thinking of how to update my sig anyway, seems quite apt at the mo' ;-)
