Re: How to explain...
My poor excuse (and it is a poor excuse) is that I actually hit his rear tailgate which he'd put down...so the sensors went off just as i hit that as they couldn't sense the tailgate as it was too high up and only sensed the truck (too late for me).
Still no excuse for not seeing the truck but as I'd only just come to rest I didn't expect a truckto have appeared so quickly and didn't look properly.
I may hang onto the GT to be honest until the parts are in as I'm not sure I can face life in a Ford Ka courtesy heap...I'd rather drive the dented alfa for the two months it'll probably take to get the parts. Who needs a boot anyway?
Anyone know how alfa are at getting parts for stuff like this these days? I reckon it will be a new boot lid.
