Yea, except as of about 3 hours ago it's Bumblebeast down!

So after just getting the bumper/door resprayed a few weeks ago, some plonker in a BMW rammed the back of the S1 whilst parked.
To be fair they did come and knock on my door and own up etc, so it's not going to cost me anything, but frustrating none the less!
No idea how he did it, I was parked in an end of some streetside parking with the rear to a driveway entrance, so he had no reason to be that close to my rear bumper as it wasn't a space, I didn't ask how he did it but I can only presume he pulled in behind me (so blocking the drive) with the intention of reversing into the space the other side of the driveway, but caught 1st not reverse. He must have given it some welly as it moved my car forward 6 inches!
It's only cosmetic damage, so I'm hoping sub £200.

Will update in due course...

Long story short, we are planning to move this year to a nice 4 bedroom house with a big drive and a double garage - but - I can't sell my Batchelor pad until the damn pub next door rebuild the grade 2 listed building (old hay loft from when it was an inn) which is suspended in the air by 3 oak beams embedded in my house, one of which is rotten and causing a whole wall of my house to be damp (and as a result I have half a kitchen sat in the dining room which I can't fit as not wiling to put it in to a damp wall which is due to be re-plastered)!

All of the above has been going on for 2 years, but escalated in October when the rotten beam moved 4 inches overnight and a bunch of bricks collapsed into it. Since then I've been dealing with Wetherspoons head office, but due to the red tape of grade listed work, and the fact I am insisting on them doing a load of other work they have neglected over the last 9 years of me owning the property things are going sloooooooowly!

And on top of that, next door (mirror image of mine but the top floor is split into 2 bedrooms whereas mine is 1 big room I use as the living room) has put theirs on the market - so if I do as well I've no idea what will happen with people looking at both. Mine is much nicer having just be renovated over the last 12 months (new carpets/kitchen/bathroom/windows/doors/rebuilt shed/all decorated - adds up to £15k! Ouch!), but theirs has the extra bedroom... so who knows what the market will think of them!

There is the final party wall survey due to be presented next week - if there isn't movement within a few days after that then I'm getting the lawyers out!

So the fact I have now had to fix my car twice in a few weeks due to having to park it on the road through no fault of my own is really rather a raw nerve!

Ahhhh, rant over, that felt better! And trust me, that is the short story!

Chill out with a beer, just not from next door.

Good advice! Going out for a charity dinner dance this evening - that should suffice

Booked into the bodyshop Mon-Weds - £192 all in, so not too bad.

But more excitingly, it's booked into Advanced In-Car for Monday 16th to have a new to market rear view (and maybe front view) camera fitted
I'm going to be the guinea pig fitment for them, but they have sent me images of the kit and it looks great - fully integrated/OEM style and quality boot handle mounted camera - plus the steering lines overlay what move with the steering wheel that you get on the bigger Audi's (and I miss from my SQ5).
Should be a nice addition which I have been searching for but only been able to find the £50 Chinese crap to date - this is the first German built after market retrofit option for the A1/S1

You are not having much luck with this car.  Perhaps you should swap it for one in a brighter colour so people don't drive into it.  Oh, hang on....

Haha - yea, it's like people get caught in the headlights staring at it and then it just hits them! Same with the Mrs bright green Octavia vRS, never seen so many people pull out in front of you etc!

You already commented above on how it was parked and a guy drove into the back of it! Maybe the colour of the car affects people's memory too?
