Who wanted a gearbox? I'm pretty sure, they won't repair it for me.

Bye Gerhard!

How the hell did you end up hitting the side of the straight offramp (for those not clear on where it is - Market Rd, heading North) - someone must have cut you off?

I really hope everyone is ok.

Wow I feel for you man, that bloody sux.

Insurance will cover the costs to replace?

Mind you, not like you can exactly replace a car like that... so nice.

I was the only occupant. I am fine.

Thanks.

I chose to hit the side of the off ramp as the other option was a Dukes of Hazard entry down into the train station 10m below.

Testament to the strength of a BMW (and an old one too), that was a 100kph head on into the wall. I haven't even got a bruise.

And I'll wait until the insurance has been sorted before I comment any further on here.

Lucky, I've got more cars.

Crap. Time for an M5?
