you sure it wasnt anything to do with the aftermarket rims and spacers that fucked up the geometry and made the back end less stable? or were you literally giving it some beans? sorry to see that mate, looks expensive

What?

Nah, doubt it would "make" him spin out.

My money is on fresh tyres, wet round, and a happy right foot.

I don't think it was anything to do with the spacers to be honest. They're only thin ones. OZ apparently make these wheels specifially for Porsche too?

I'm blaming the new tyres

Dan, i need your expertise again

Not a clue. The car is still at the Towing compound thing. Insurance company was notified this morning, but what can they do? Nothing... well, not until Monday anyway.
Sit and wait now

Btw, i got a price on a clutch for it, and that was 700 inc labour

Where do you buy car crashes from?

It's brought, not bought.

I know i brought it on myself. I was the driver
Its my first proper crash in 7 years of driving so, oh well i suppose.
Why not post it on a forum? It'll hopefully teach people to be careful in wet road conditions. I'm not bragging about it if thats what you're thinking?

Tom, the wheels cost 2100? I think? My friend gave me a good price from his shop *ahem* NWCTuning...
And i didn't steal my car from anywhere Hard work paid for it all

Lisa, shush, stop rubbing it in... Can i trust myself with your car? I'm too scared to put my foot on the pedal any further than 1/4 way at the moment
Adam, what am i getting well from?
