    Watch them with your No Claims

    My friend reversed into my car and claimed through his insurance, then next renewal my no claims came back 10 years down to 3 as although it was not my fault it was still a 'claim'

    They re-instated my 10 years NCB after i went mental as a 'gesture of good will'

    Thjey will literally do anything to get out of paying.
    My brothers insurance company refused to cover him when he was forced off the road by a blonde bimbo in an SUV. Hit a trench of a pothole, a double punture, bend steering rack and needed new shocks on both front and rear. He had run flats so limped the car a mile up the road to have them fixed so he could get to work on time. Rang the insurance when he got to work and they said they wouldnt cover him as their policy is that they have to "recover the vehicle from the scene of the 'accident' themselves". Total Joke. He ended up 2.5k out of pocket as the insurance company refused to pay.

    In the middle they often are, I had one near the sidewalls, but just on the correct side, they managed to do it no problems. THose are Crossclimates aren't they?

    As long as the nail/screw is 1” in from the edge of the tread punctures should be reparable.

    Well that puncture cost me £117 :cry:
    Apparently the screw was in at an angle so it couldn't be repaired.
    Yes they are Michelin CrossClimates. Had another one fitted today so they are on every corner still.

    Rain cleared up so got the car cleaned.

    Then the sun came out so thought why not give swapping the grills out a go. Was surprisingly easy once I enlisted the help of my younger brother and my dog.

    I took my whole bumper off to do it. Going to be swapping them again (for some with a different paint scheme) so tempted to see if I can take off my current R grills without taking the bumper off. As I did not enjoy taking it off.

    I've had protected no claims for a number of years now. Helped somewhat when I demolished next doors visitor's Fiesta that they parked overhanging my driveway by 18". I seem to have bad luck when it comes to accidents with Fords in general.

    Got the Leon back from the bodyshop this morning. Looks all good, I'm just out my policy excess until the insurance companies settle matters.

    Great addition to the car but I'd change that copper detail if I were you. It doesn't go with the red.

    Do you guys do not miss the fog light? I use the fog lights are curve light (from 70km/h and lower).

    Have they changed the grill on the MY20? The top of yours looks different to mine. Looks like the blanking of the holes is set further forward on yours.

    It actually looks a lot better in person. When I get my camera out tomorrow I’ll get some snaps of it and show you. I was originally planning on painting them red to match the car, but after seeing them in the car in person it doesn’t look too bad.

    Ha
    Haven’t used fog lights at all in the last 7 years I’ve had cars with fog lights. The rear ones yes, front ones no, and the turning thing annoyed me and was the first thing I disabled after the soundaktor
