well i was in a mood for past few days women trouble and decided to take glanza for good hard spin to bally b  i was doing about ***mph  when there was a flapping noise then bang

looked in my mirror to see my passanger side wheel arch lining hitting the car behind me  i was going to fast to stop as i would have caused an accident

so i stopped in bally b to find very little damage bent the wing a small bit and broke clips off had a lucky escape only thing is i can think of is it wasnt bolted at front from last donkey removed all screws when fitted front mount and wind caught it and it wrapped around the wheel

I don't really know what this thread is about.
I would advise against posting about speeding and hard driving on an open forum.

id say it was for your own benefit not rex's that he said it to ya as its an open forum all anyone has to do is look what ya wrote and report ya ya gave the speed and location to where ya were speeding in fairness bit dangerous on a public road too one wrong move and ya would wipe out an innocent family times and places for that speed and public road is not the place

My ex family have a house in ballb b one late night heading down in the camper I hit a pothole it lowered the back of my camper real fast snapping both rear springs was a shock and a half as there were heavy duty 190 Transit springs of a jumbo transit and would happily take 3 tons and the van was high at the back as you can see in this picture I put that back wheel right up into the arch cost my €300 to fix and I've never gone near there again Very Happy

Sound like you drove off in a bad mood and nearly caused an accident from driving too fast.

Drive at a speed which allows you to cope with the unexpected.

sounds like you were lucky there was minimal damage to the car.

I'm locking this anyway cause the really doesn't seem to be any point in it being on the forum
