Well not a happy camper to say the least. Was out today in my 12 day old Kombi and stopped at B&Q for some bits. I came out 10 m later jumped in and went to go and the parking sensors were going mental(at the rear) so I jumped out only to notice some barsteward has dented both doors low down and centrally and scuffed all the top of the colour coded bumper!:eek::eek::eek::eek:
No witnesses and CCTV footage either. Gutted is an under statement how I feel after working so hard to get my new pride and joy and some low life does this to it. Cheers smiffy

Haha nice one. I damaged a blokes tailgate on his pickup once as forgot to put on a ladder clamp and was left on the roof untill he braked suddenly! Anyway he didn't notice but I followed him and told him, long n short It cost me £250 cash but hey I felt ok after about it.

AFAIK you only pay for the VAT if you are VAT registered (then you get it "back" anyway).

That sucks!! Get yourself a towbar, has saved me a few rear end shunts before!!
Good thinking - I know quite a lot of people who do just that - towbar fitted & no electrics.
