I don't come on here for a day & we go from Carlos' damaged 19" wheel to basques- nice 'off-topicing' everyone!

Sorry to hear about your wheel, Carlostafrontrim.

Here's to getting the car back to normal soon.


All the best.

Yes I thought that was a bit overly harsh and unnecessary.

funny how people can be nice to your face then rude behind your back i thought i got on with him, obviously a two-faced sort.


Not a nice trait at all! says more about him than the person who isnt even on the forum to defend themselves!!

also it seems roofer does not believe i just glanced it?!!

i never quite understand people who dont believe what others say that happened! is that because they lie or bend the truth? maybe i feel!!

why would i say i only glanced it if for instance i had majorly walloped it?!

it was a curb protector which dug in and ripped it, no big bang no nothing.. i have nothing to hide?! if i had smacked it hard i would have said.. thats why i dont believe much more damage other than the wheel has been done as it was such a light impact!

but Tony did say it prob would have pulled the wheel to the left slightly just due to the nature of the impact not the severity. Therefore probably bendind the lower arm
