    Hey....kind of new....

    Hey all!

    I'm new to this website, but some of you will recognize me from the other side as "Dez-Derek" from Portsmouth
    Anyways, I'm just here introducing myself as I've never officially introduced myself on the other side!

    New story, I've crashed my 316i but ordering the parts today, so should be back on the road fairly soon!

    Thanks!

    Hey and thanks

    I was taking the 1st exit off a roundabout and after I took the turn, the car decide to fish tail, I tried to correct it but it was too late, the car hopped on the pavement then decided to correct itself after hitting a fence and taking out a few fence (wooden) panels. I'm just glad that there were no people on the pavement or on the other side of the fence, otherwise it could have been worse.

    Paid 750 to put up a new fence, so at least it doesn't go through the insurance! And I just ordered the main body panels which has cost me 141.31 incl delivery (bumper reinforcer, front bumper, passenger wing, front nose panel and the lower bumper grille). I also bought a passenger headlamp for 25 incl delivery and currently highest bidder on eBay for both front corner indicators 10 incl delivery.

    I'll still need to get the kidney grilles, fog lamps, air duct for brakes for the bumper and the front passenger plastic wheel arch thingy. Costly accident but that's life hey. Just pick yourself up and carry on!

    I would sell her but already spent 450 a week ago to get the head gasket replaced lol, so I think I'll keep her for a bit longer.....even if she tries to kill me

    Oh forgot to add, I've already bought an Avus blue bonnet for 60 incl delivery. The other parts I still have to paint them as it is quite difficult finding an Avus body panels for a sedan/saloon e36 on eBay.
