Dubious Honour

So I think I'm the first to have an accident in the 135 in Australia.


Dickhead decides to slam on his brakes to do a right hand turn, van brakes late, I hit van.




Absolutely furious. Hopefully get the car back before the cruise.

Shit mate! Nothing worse than doing it to such a new car, I rubbed guards with another car 2 weeks after I got my polo.

Never been so furious!

Best of luck on getting it back a.s.a.p, still got the TT to drive around in?

Ouch, those things can be expensive to fix too. Hopefully you've not bent the A-pillars or roof.

Sorry to hear about your accident. At least you're OK and doesn't look like too much damage to the car.

Damn mate! Looks like at least $10k repair bill so put the claim through insurance ASAP.

Had a similar accident with my old 316i, and it cost $6k back then, but my radiator was safe.
