Silly old gits!

Hi All,

Less than a week to go until my 3 month ban is up... Wife was driving on Friday night, and a silly old git entered a roundabout without stopping, or looking, and drove into the side of us!

He said he didn't see us - it's a bright yellow car for *$^%'s sake!!!

So just when I'll be back on the road, my 993 turbo will be off the road getting the door and rear quarter panel repaired... Great :(
Still, I've got a Lotus Elise booked from the Classic Car Club for the weekend anyway, so will have some driving fun at least.

If you were on two wheels you would probably be dead by now. Just another example of the majority of accidents where speed is not the issue, but driving standards is.

Sorry to hear about the prang. I assume that they will admit full responsibility with regards to the Insurance.

Where are you getting your car repaired? I need my TT`s front bumper and bonnet repainted due to stone chips. Need to find somewhere in Edinbirgh or Glasgow that is good.

I also have 2 weeks left on a 2month ban, so will keep her in the garage away from old gits!!

Hi Ronnie,

I was planning on getting it repaired at Glenvarigill in Edinburgh. The car was originally bought from them, has always been serviced there, and is due in for a service next week anyway.

Norwich Union recommended another place in Livingstone/Bathgate I think. Not sure of the spelling, but it sounded like Stuart Rodden motors, phone number 01506 890 724. NU had them down as an approved Porsche repairer, and I guess they'd be cheaper than a main dealer.


P.S. Give me a shout when you're back on the road - I'd be interested in seeing what difference you're coilover set makes.

Hello Colin,

I phoned Glenvargill and they gave me the number for the bodyshop that they use for there repairs - cant remember the name but it was in a little town near the Forth Bridge called Winchburgh. Will also try Stuart Rodden.

Glenvargill (Edinburgh) has an open day this Saturday for PCGB members and is offering a free 24 point check, so might get the missus to take me and the TT along.

As regards to the coilovers, it certainly has made the car a lot stiffer but the handling makes up for it. In addition with the muffler bypasses (which gives it such a great sound) the car is more aggresive.

Turns out that the place in Winchburgh Glenvarigil use is Stuart Rodden! They're officially approved by Porsche UK, so should be OK.

Stuart Rodden must be doing OK too - was up at Knockhill last night and they had 2 race prepared Ferrari 360's going round the track, one of them logo'd up up 'Stuart Rodden Motorsport'.
