You know those notions that come to you just as you’re falling asleep, and then the next day seem totally batshit? I had one last night, but it won’t go away.
Especially now the seller’s smoked most of it. Optimistic doesn’t tell the half of it.
So, some idiot decided to ram the Camry the other night. Not massive damage, but the challenge is to get it valued properly so they don’t write it off - his insurance is going to be paying, I reckon, since he changed lanes right into my rear door.
You can now buy a 2 y/o secondhand Dacia Sandero for <£3500 (~$5000)
A few times recently, I’ve seen people round here saying that there’s a difference between a Beamer and a Bimmer, with one being a motorbike and the other a car.

Anyone heard of this, or had any experience?
What a fucking terrible bit of driving. Driver should have swung wide on the street he was on, and then turned into his own side of the road.
No-one hurt too badly this time, so we can play the game. I’m going with Vauxhall Astra because a) door mirrors and b) stupidity. Apparently the driver went straight across a t-junction where they didn’t have priority because their sat-nav told them to keep going straight on.
