Just had a blow out on a duel carrage way roundabout.

I am fine, but the cinq is dead.

Engine isn't working, but it was on its way out anyways...

I managed to do a 180 right after the roundabout, and landed on the passagenger side of the car. No one else was involved, thankfully.

I'll make a post later about the parts... but most things are ok.

Just got itwashed and all! :rolleyes:

I'll prob go non-fiat for a while, due to lack of money...

Tkink i have whip lash :eek: Big wheels on small cars= no from now on :D

joe

ps- pic's will be on later.

Erm, the passagerger side is horrific.

Both wheels bent inwards..so i am guessing the joints etc are gone.The windscreen has a crack near the piller, so theres some structural damage there.

The rear quarter paneltook the majority of the damage.

I think i am just a bit shook up thanks..

Me and my bro are stripping it right down now.

Cream lockwood dials are ok ;)

I think the passanger side wheel blew and the the whole car pivated around on that alloy.

It reminded me of that video you had of your mates j-turn. :D

No worries mate, the parts have to go.

The car is black and i think the bonnet is ok...

I'll check it out tomorrow.

Today, i have taken the spoiler, rear bumper and interior out (except seats) aswell as the wing mirrors.

Request parts if you want, as it will sent to the scrap yard monday.

wot caused that to happen?

I dont know... Didnt attack the roundabout incredibly fast, don't think that i hit anything either. It's not like it has bad tyres... goodyear eagle F1's all round. (with decent tread on all)
