Well heres the story...

Travelling back down the A1 heading towards A14 get a traffic report saying accident on A14 and 2 hour delays, thought ah ha! short cut back way.

Heading back way, go past Skoda, going prob quicker than i should and... there is a dead deer in the road.

With the kit on the car couldn't go over the deer so instead it smashed to tiny pieces. Now i'm sporting side skirts from the Cadamuro kit and.. that's it ](*,)

I have a mate with a trophy red ZR and when I first met him the bonnet had been totally wrecked through a deer jumping out of nowhere straight onto it while he was doing 70.

I hit a deer once as well. Thankfully it was with a train which was undamaged. The deer was a right off though.

Ewan.

2 at once that almost wrote off my mini and one in my ** (Word banned for fear of laughter, well I had a huge system in it) at 80mph on the motorway

That one hurt!

Yep the ZR shall be going, it'll be put back to normal, i;ve managed to have the rear saved and fixed but the front is in so many pieces thats gone for good.

Keeping it till March at which stage i'll have around £20k to spend on a new car, annoying thing was well my ZR was booked in March for the following...

Hydraulics,
200 way flip paint,
New Custom Front,
20" chromes where due to be made to fit
Turbo'd,

Been saving the last 6 months, Feb is bonus month, was gonna chuck about £8k into the car.

No idea what to get? if a turbo'd ZR came out i'd jump straight on the wagon but now i've no idea
