Jetwash incident befor the Nottingham meet.

Took the car back as I didnt see the brush scratching as it was foaming at the same time. Basically ghey said 'prove it was us'

Not a happy bunny

Re: :mad: stupid car wash :mad:

when my panda got scratched and the sunroof blew out (by the dryer at a car wash), i got in touch with a no win no fee solicitor, and managed to get 650 for repairs .

I've been lucky with car washes before although they never clean around the rear lights properly.

Re: :mad: stupid car wash :mad:

I missed the showcase meet due to stopping twice and a very long speed restriction on the motorway at Stoke. I was at Stanford from 9am onwards wearing a FF top
