Cry Like A Baby Car Attacked By Kamikaze Crow

Like it says. On the way to work this morning a kamikaze crow attacked the front of my bella leaving gouges in the bumper and took the paint off

Do you think its the sort of thing the mobile repair guys could sort out ?

Re: Car Attacked By Kamikaze Crow

Depending on how deep the gouges are I guess. Might be a bit more than a chips away job possibly. But they do a free quotation, so worth inviting them round.

Re: Car Attacked By Kamikaze Crow

I had the same in my 156, though it was a smaller bird (flying variety).

Was in the south of france, and this bird dropped and swooped towards me on a suicide mission and went through my lower grill

Bumper off job to replace that grill...grrrr
