New hair-do

Hmm

Anyone else heard of the latest accessory on a Merc? It's small button that when pushed causes the vehicle to ondergo a trans-dimensional phasing that allows you to drive through the car in front. It appears the guy behind me at the juction this morning thought he had it fitted!

Low speed shunt as he simply set off before I did. I'm OK and a scraped rear bumper and cracked number plate is all the visible damage, but I think there may be more damage to the car than I first though as it looks like a bracket that fixes the rear bumper on may have been bent 90 degrees. Mind you you should see the effect the bump had on his car.

Things that go bump in the morning

Been to the garage for an estimate. New bumper, trims, number plate, etc only required. About £700. See what the insurance says. Mind you, a mate of mums reckons it will be about £3000 just for the bonnet damage on the Merc coupe! It appears the problem for him was a steel beam that protects the back of a 307. The guy at the garage seemed to expect the amount of damage to the other car.
