Really pleased this is getting fixed dude!! Although maybe it's a sign you should hide it away and find a disposable daily??

Yeh i have thought about it but cant really afford to have 2 cars unless i sorn the si again but i just renewed the road tax for a year literally a couple of days before the bump. This has been the only year in 5 years that ive used it for the whole year as i had my old white fiesta and before that my old mk2 fiesta

ive been tempted to buy a mk5 fiesta ghia 1.4 16v with heated screen and air con but not sure yet

Another small update the bodyshop guy has painted the panels on the inside before welding them on :)

Got to love having someone repair your car and they do it to a standard they would do for there own :)
