I was just hit as I was coming round a roundabout in Harlow, other driver just kept going instead of giving way. Rammed my front offside.

I have now learned that I had offside and nearside wrong.  Shrugs:

Anyway, Although I drove home and it seemed OK, the damage is worse than I first thought. The nearside front wing is dented and scratched, the headlight cluster has been pushed into the bonnet which has been jambed shut and I would guess the tracking is now off.

I would post a picture but I having trouble uploading to imgur.  Yargh:

Would have needed a "sidecam"

Judging by the force that she hit me I reckon that she put her foot on the accelerator rather than the brake.  evil:

Just had a call from the third party insurers offering their services. It seems that the woman who hit me has admitted full liability  :thumbsup:

Car collected from garage  :thumbsup:


After driving the Nissan for a couple weeks getting back in B-Max was an odd feeling. It's so small and tinny  eeek: It was like getting into a child's pedal car.
