Re: MOT fail

whats wrong with the windscreen??

if you need a new one, check your insurance policy covers you for a new windscreen and smash it

i had to pay 50 excess when my windscreen cracked and i had more fun taking a hammer to it to finish the job off

Re: MOT fail

Probably because it was quicker than chucking small stones at it as hard as he could to make a small chip and then driving 300 miles at 100 mph to make the chip grow into a crack.

Re: MOT fail

And would probably look a little more authentic than the result of hammer/windscreen interaction.

Sorry, forgot to say, sorry to hear about the MOT failure, hope it doesn't prove too costly.

Re: MOT fail

I prefer the "parked on my drive and someone vandalised it during the night" scenario, but that would probably raise the insurance premium for everyone else in the same postcode area.

Re: MOT fail

ugh, brings up vivid merories of me mashing a magpie against my windscreen and mauling a pheasant with my front bumper. <shudders>
