The C&G Curse strikes... In Portugal...

Recommended Posts

...In Lisbon to be exact.

So I am driving my new Megane GT Line wagon (purchased June 2012) home after I stopped by the mall to buy a new TV and all of a sudden I distract myself with the radio screen for half a second... When I look ahead, I see a car stopped at a crosswalk. I hit the brakes hard, but since the road was very very slippery due to the 1st real rainfall after the Summer, the car slides and hits the car in front at between 30KPH and 40KPH...

No injuries (thankfully!) and the car is running well, but from what I checked in my garage when I got home the repair will include a new front bumper (the fron parking sensors went nuts), new right front headlight unit (car's got HID / directional units - still don't get it how the f*ck did it crack with hhe impact), and apparently the bumper bended the right front fender a bit... And here comes an insurance preimum hike for me, yay! :puke:

All I have to say, really, is that I feel stupid about my distraction (though this last week was very tough on me - broke up with GF; had hard time at work; all at the same time)... 1st time it happened in 10+ years of driving... An inexcusable distraction! :explode:

I'm sure we all agree that we're glad no one was hurt.

True... Yet I feel so :banghead:

Bummer, sorry you had the accident, thankfully no one hurt and you live to learn from the experiance.

Good Luck with the repairs, Since you had no accident in 10+ years, the insurance hit should not be that bad.

If you get a moment post some pics for us to see.
