cry mode on:<p>yesterday somebody hit me while I was parked. He drove backwards beside my car and shaved my hole right side. result:<p>- 1 broken fender front-right<br>- 1 damaged door front right<br>- 1 damaged door back-right ( and its closes little bit difficult )<br>- 1 damaged fender back-right<br>- 1 fully broken mirror<br>- My rim is scratched and not good anymore, it is jumpy while I am driving<p><br>I have the car for 3 weeks now and it is truellu my dream-car... All I can do was cry last evening. I know it is insurance work but still <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I was in the car while it happened, so I am quite lucky...<p>I hope the car will be fixed soon. It is now at a local dealership to estimate the costs for the repairs.<p>The worst thing is, rarely you will find an T-5R in such a condition as my 850... I wanted to keep it that way.<p><br>Greetings from an upset dutch guy<p>Jori

Re: Introducing myself (OMD-2)

Welkom op Swede Speed!<p>Your car looks awesome, really sorry to hear about your misfortune. I've only had my C70 for a few weeks and I'm being ever so careful to make sure nothing happens to her. Whenever you get her fixed up and if you're ever in the North (Groningen), look me up and we can go here together, not many Volvo's but hoping the group will start to grow:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=60357" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=60357</A><p>Good luck with the repairs!

Nope not on any Dutch forums at the moment, I do leech through them quite often though.<p>I would need a vacation too if something like that happened to my car, but such is lift. Good luck with the repairs!
